Star Power Final 5 contestants named

Advertisements
Star Power: Sharon's Search for the Next Female Pop Superstar will have 5 contestants competing in the grand finals happening this February, 2011.

As announced on the show's episode last night, they decided to have 5 contenders on the grand finale instead of the planned Final 4 because the remaining 5 contestants are all worthy of a spot in the finals.

While it may sound favorable to the 5 contestants, it didn't ring good to some of the fans who've been voting online and via SMS, because they felt that their votes were totally ignored.

That's actually one of the flaws of Star Power. We are not sure if the votes are really being considered because it's not being revealed and for the judges, viewers' votes totally don't exist.

Judge Bobot Mortiz once said this to a contestant who ranked in the Bottom 4, "Nagtataka talaga 'ko kung bakit palagi kang napapasama sa Bottom 4." Didn't he know that text votes are part of the contestants' scores?

I also hope that there will be a separate judges on the finals because the resident judges have been playing favorites. Judge Billy Crawford was caught last night labeling one of the 5 contestants as "my favorite" while he was announcing her name as one of the Final 5.

But with judges having a clear favorite among the contestants could mean she could be the winner already, because the judges are already close of the possibility that other contestants might get ahead of her.

I'm not against any of the Final 5. I actually like them all for they really have what they call as the "star power". It's just that I want the judges to be fair to all of them.

If they can't have new judges on the finals, better tell the current judges to stop revealing who their favorites are because their judging becomes subjective already.

On Star Power Official Facebook Page, viewer Sherlyn Lorenzo posted this comment after last night's episode: "Kelangan pa pu b mgvote?ei di b me favorite n ang mga judges?:(sure b na ang boto ng ta0ng bayan ang mgpapanalo s mpipili nlang krapat dpat s pwesto?o ang ch0ice din ng mga judge?.haay....may the best gurl win nlng...gudluck s final 5..."

She has a point.

The Final 5: (Don't forget to vote at the fun poll found at the bottom of this post)

Who do you think will be the grand winner of Star Power?

  4. sakto jud.....dapat iba na ang mag.judge sa finals... kasi ang mga judges ng star power ay may mga favorites na... at saka, ano pa ang use nang aming mga text votes kung sa huli ay nasa mga judges rin pala ang huling desisyon??

  21. sophiemichiku: Super Agree! yun nlang siguro dapat IBA nlang ang Judges sa Grand finals. para fair at SANA yung talagang alam ang music like yung teacher nila sa voice lesson si teacher kitchie. para fair sa lahat. walang fave-fave! para atleast anu't anu man. hindi lalabas na unfair sa mga tao, yung sa textvotes ang labo na sasabihin nilang taong bayan ang pipili? pero hindi ndin nasusunod. Pray & support nlang magagawa natin. may chance pa naman hindi pa tpos ang Grand finals nyt hindi nten masasabi ang pwdeng mangyari. may pag asa pa silang lahat. GO ANGELINE!!!!!!

  34. Try to dig deeper..1 person could also mean a Million vote, so you cant say marami talaga syang supporters..hindi ako masyadong nagpapaniwala sa vote because its a matter of pera-pera lang, for me it cant be a reliable criteria to judge kung sino pinaka magaling..
