ABS-CBN’s ‘Search for the Idol Philippines‘ debuted successfully as it topped the weekend programming last Sunday, April 21. Regine Velazquez-Alcasid, Moira Dela Torre, James Reid, and Vice Ganda serve as the judges of the show, and Billy Crawdford as host.
On the pilot episode of “Idol Philippines” Sunday, a 27-year-old dad from Pampanga named Renwick Benito is a step closer to his dreams as he received a ticket to “Idol City.”
Renwick performed Juan Karlos Labajo’s “Buwan,” perhaps JK’s most popular original song, ranking in more than 1 million streams in Spotify. Renwick’s performance received praises from the judges.
Moira said: “Every word was enunciated well. Your tone was perfect. Lahat ng, ‘yung dynamics, sobrang perfect. Pati ‘yung heart, you got your message across. You did it so perfectly. Saludo po ako sa inyo, sobrang galing niyo po.”
Vice Ganda added: “Actually may dating ka, ang ganda ng dating mo.”
Renwick receive four “yesses” from the judges and will be competing in the next round.
