Jovany Satera, Alfred Relatado advance to Tawag ng Tanghalan grand finals

Radio DJ Jovany Satera and fisherman Alfred Relatado have become the first 2 grand finalists of Tawag ng Tanghalan Season 2, as announced today on It's Showtime.

After 6 rounds of performances in the week-long semifinals, Mindanao bets Jovany Satera and Alfred Relatado obtained the 1st and 2nd highest combined average scores (50% text votes, 50% judges' scores) to earn their slots in the grand finals.

Each took home P150,000 cash prize.

Aila Santos, also from Mindanao, and John Mark Saga from Luzon placed 3rd and 4th, each received P25,000 consolation prize.

Here's the full and final results of the voting by the viewers and the scores they got from the judges.

(50% of their total scores)
1. Jovany 100%
2. Alfred 58.10%
3. Aila 51.64%
4. John Mark 31.58%

(50% of their total scores)
1. John Mark 95.06%
2. Jovany 91.34%
3. Alfred 89.94%
4. Aila 89.16%

(50% text votes + 50% hurados' scores)
1. Jovany 95.67% - advanced
2. Alfred 74.05% - advanced
3. Aila 70.40% - eliminated
4. John Mark 63.32% - eliminated

Notice that it's John Saga who got the highest score from the judges, but he ranked the lowest in the text voting and his votes weren't enough to secure him a slot in the grand finals.

I'm kinda surprised that Aila got only 89.16 from the judges. I thought she was so good the whole week of the competition.

It's noteworthy to think that Alfred was in the Bottom 2 (the lowest in text votes) when the partial tally of votes was revealed last Tuesday, but he managed to recover and eventually finished in the Top 2. -
