The Voice of the Philippines Season 2 Blind Auditions round is almost over, as the show now just needs 14 artists to complete the Top 56 for the Battles.

Ex-Rivermaya vocalist Jason Fernandez sings Eraserheads' "Huling El Bimbo" during blind auditions for The Voice Philippines


Filipino-Greek Jason Fernandez Cristodolous, 25 from Sta. Rosa, Laguna, is a former lead vocalist of Rivermaya, the group which also had Coach Bamboo and Rico Blanco as vocalists before Jason. He left the group 3 years ago to form his own band Sta Maria.


Thara Jordana sings "We Can't Stop" during the blind auditions of The Voice Philippines


24-year-old Fil-Spanish beauty Thara Jordana from Cebu on one hand is also a familiar face, as she was once a Star Magic talent. I remember her as part of the afternoon show 'Shoutout' and as the girl in the Nescafe Decaf TVC sometime 4 years ago.


Mark Avila sings "Ordinary People" during the blind auditions of The Voice Philippines


But I'm certainly most excited of my "kababayan" Mark Angelo Avila, 20, from Naga City, Camarines Sur. He's a Civil Engineering student at the Ateneo de Naga University (where I graduated) and I have already heard him sing in many events in the city. You'll love his Bicolano version of "Kung Kailangan Mo Ako". (Jason Fernandez by the way is also a Bicolano, from Camarines Norte.)

Here are the 42 artists so far who have successfully turned at least one chair during the Blind Auditions and we'll be seeing them next in the Battles:

TEAM APL - Alisah Bonaobra, Bradley Holmes, Ferns Tosco, Jannet Cadayona, Jason Fernandez, Krystina Louise Ng, Mark Angelo Avila, Mark Cando, Mecerdita Quiachon, Samantha Felizco

TEAM LEA - Charles Catbagan, Christelle Tiquis, Humfrey Nicasio, Jem Cubil, Lea Patricio, Miro Valera, Nino Alejandro, Philippe Go, Thara Jordana, Timothy Pavino

TEAM SARAH - Carol Leus, Daniel Ombao, Demie Fresco, Elmerjun Hilario, Jason James Dy, Kokoi Baldo, Mark Douglas Dagal, Monique Lualhati, Poppert Berdanas, Shaira Opsimar, Vanessa Monot

Floyd Mayweather Jr, Pacquiao's next opponent? Mommy Dionisia reaction photos go viral

The Philippines' Manny Pacquiao has just won vs the American boxer Chris Algieri in a title fight held Sunday morning at the Venetian Macao's Cotai Arena in Macau, China (Saturday evening, USA time). (View: Pacquiao vs Algieri Fight Results)

Algieri is 5 years younger and 3.5 inches taller (not to mention he's a lot hotter), but Pacquiao proved he's 10x stronger and a much better fighter than him.

The Filipino fighter won via unanimous decision, and it wasn't even a close fight. Two judges gave Pacquiao 11 of the 12 rounds when they scored it as 119-103, while the other one gave it all for Manny, 120-102.

In one of his interviews before this fight, Pacman already said he wanted his next fight this 2015 to be against Floyd Mayweather Jr. That's all we want as well Manny!

And just like during Pacquiao's fight against Timothy Bradley last April, Pacmom Dionisia "Mommy D" Pacquiao stole the spotlight once again with her funny reactions while watching his son's fight against Chris Algieri.

Did she just do her "rituals" or "spells" again? haha. She never fails to amuse me. She's the real champion, isn't she?


via @QuoteLounge101


It's guaranteed Pacman will grant Pacmom's wishes again, now that he's got more millions to add to his wealth. Another Hermes bag? But since Mommy D has got a new boyfriend, I can sense she's going to have her own "12-round fight" with him later tonight in one of the most expensive hotels in Macau. - Mykiru.ph

Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger spotted at Pacquiao vs Algieri fight

Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger spotted at Pacquiao vs Algieri fight: Sylvester Stallone and Schwarzenegger were both in the audience; In fact, Sylvester Stallone and Schwarzenegger both visited Pacquiao and Algieri in their respective locker rooms before the fight to wish them good luck
Pacquiao Vs Algieri fight takes place in Macau and I'm posting down here live round-by-round updates of the main event as well as the undercard fights based on the available live stream online. Scroll down for my live blog updates.

You can watch the Pacquiao Vs Algieri fight live on HBO PPV or thru your local TV networks authorized to air the fight.

The Manny Pacquaio vs Chris Algieri fight is targeted at mostly US viewers, that's why it's taking place Sunday morning in Macau, so that it's airing Saturday night in the US.

It's happening almost exactly a year after Pacquiao squared off inside the ring against Brandon Rios, which was held November 24 also in the same venue, the Cotai Arena at the Venetian Macao. He went on to win by unanimous decision, and redeemed himself after 2 consecutive losses. Last May in Las Vegas, he won again by decision in a rematch against Timothy Bradley. This time, will Pacquiao give Algieri his first ever loss?

"You can run, but you can't hide." That's how Pacquiao challenged Algieri during one of their press interviews. And the boxing champ/basketball coach is already looking at the possibily of having Floyd Mayweather Jr as his next opponent after Algieri.

I'm sure every Filipino's wish for Valerie on this special day is a back-to-back win for the Philippines, whose candidate last year, Megan Young, became the first Pinay Miss World.

Valerie is now 25 years old, one of the oldest among 124 candidates. Before coming to the pageant, there were already 10 candidates who are 25 years old. They are Miss Netherlands Tatjana Maul, Miss Romania
Bianca Fanu, Miss Sri Lanka Chulakshi Ranathunga, Miss Norway Monica Pedersen, Miss Mauritius Sheetal Khadun, Miss Malaysia Dewi Liana Seriestha, Miss Haiti Carolyn Desert, Miss British Virgin Islands Rosanna Chichester, Miss Bolivia Andrea Forfori and Miss Albania Xhensila Pere.

Miss Guinea-Bissau Laila Da Costa meanwhile is the youngest of all, only 17 years old. Also among the youngest are the candidates from Côte d'Ivoire (Jennifer Yéo), Germany (Egzonita Ala), Moldova (Alexandra Caruntu), Montenegro (Natasa Novakovic), Slovakia (Laura Longauerová) and Sweden (Olivia Asplund) who are all 18 years old.

Later today, the candidates will be divided into groups, to take part in the Sports eliminations.

All these Talent, Dances of the World and Sports challenges are just 3 of the many competitions of the pageant where the candidates can earn
points or get high scores in order for them to earn a slot in
semi-finals. - Mykiru.ph
