StarStruck 4, The Final Judgement Night. Reporting from the Marikina Sports Park
I was there!
Hindi lahat ng nooks and crannies ng show ay mai-report ko, this is based on my own opinions and the facts that i currently know.
Thanks to somebody i knew. I got tickets to get inside and i noticed that i was at the ground level. The last season i was at the bleachers (yes, i watched it too live. Eh wala pa itong blog na ito.). For a change naman sabi ko sa sarili ko, then a little reality sets in, the place is in a big mess with chairs na pataasan (via “patong-patong” the chairs) para kita ang stage and walang order yung seats, unlike the area in the front of the stage where the relatives and friends sit and special tickets holders which my friend said, which By the way was also there. Dapat raw yung tickets sa harap ang kukunin, umm mali yung nakuha ng “source” nya pala. Naayos rin yung chair issue before the start of the show.
Anyways, the show started past 7:00 PM closer to 8:00 PM and at one point of the first production number, the Final 4 and 10 avengers of the last 3 batches and the 13 avengers of the 4th batch (i did not see that S*m M*lb* look-alike, mukhang ayaw na ng siyete sa kanya!) appeared on stage with different showcases, yung isang batch primarily of Jennylyn and Yasmien sang while the other primarily of Mark, Marky danced. It’s nice to see them all in one stage but sadly i forgot some of their names! Sana pag-nagretire na ang current talents nila, eh lahat sila ay pumalit, and i mean “LAHAT” (except if lumipat or some bad things happened)
After that and the fireworks, which mas mahaba pa yung sa SM Mall of Asia compared that night (i can compare them since i saw a “Starmaker” truck outside the MSP which also supplies the fireworks for MOA.) or even last season. Si Aljur muna ang nag-perform, nag-ala boyband ang performance then si Mart naman na magaling sumayaw (Notice that Mark Herras & Marky Cielo and now Mart Escudero are good dancers and all of them start with an “M”?) then si Prince na kumanta lamang.
After each performances, they gave some numbers on the percentage given to them by some of the council members and the text votes from lowest to higest among the boys and girls, patikim kung sino ang mananalo and a little bit of transparency na rin.
Before the girls turn, yung boys ay nakapareha nila sina Ryza Cenon, Jackie Rice (Last year lang nanalo doon!) and Jennylyn Mercado (Ryza-Jen, same stage, UH-OH!) in a song number of the “official” loveteam song.
Sa girls naman, Si Jewel Mische, Ganda ng suot na damit and sumayaw siya ng maganda, i noticed that the her hair looked nice, daring pa ang suot (pero wala parin sya sa get-up ni Kris!, more of that later). Then Rich sang and danced and she got me! ANG GALING! Akala ko sa una na, meh, mabagal pero noong may maliit na “dress modification” and with the dancers, backups and the lights, ganda. Then si Kris naman, puro buhat!
And the girls ay nakapareha nila sina Mark Herras, Mike Tan (Bihira sya sa TV) and Marky Cielo (runnaway hit sa Starstruck 3!) sa isang dance number.
Let’s take a break for a moment (and ang tagal ng breaks nila doon, daig pa commercials sa TV!) and i wanna talk about the fans. Yung pinaka-bigay sa lahat ay yung mga Mart fans, ang daming “gays” and nakita ko sa inuupuan ko na sila ay nakapasok pa sila sa area na “VIP” while the rest doon sa likod na magulo. Then marami rin ang Jewel fans, followed by the Kris Fans, the Prince fans, the rich fans and lastly the Aljur fans.
Then palipat-lipat ako ng pwesto sa MSP, minsan sa bleachers, minsan sa Rehas separating that coveted(?) area, most of the time, nakatingin nalang kami sa video front projector, the same video that you will see on TV sets only walang commercials. It’s kinda surreal that you are like watching a TV show then lingon ka lang and there they are, hirap nga lang makita unlike last season na malapit me and my companions sa stage.
Balik tayo sa show, yung mga avengers, in the tradition of the production numbers for them, nag-musical sila sa pag-kakatangal nila and nakakatuwa syang panoorin. Stef, Jean, Lizzy. Sana sila ay pwede sa pwesto ni Kris.
Then merong production number sina Jolina and the runners-up ng previous batches (Rainier-Yasmien-CJ-LJ-Gian-Iwa), i will skip my review and may Sexbomb VS Starstruck showdown pa! Bigay sina Prince at sina Jesi sa Taktakan!
Special awards goes to Jesi for the “Taktak award”, Stef for Most dramatic Exit (iyak and dissapointed talaga sya noong avenger nalang siya eh), nakalimutan ko kung sino ang dalawa pang nanalo ng dalawa pang awards.
Since it getting very late at night and im hungry, hindi ko na tinapos yung show at the MSP and went home and catched up on TV, then yung sumunod sa Sexbomb na production number ay si Regine Velaquez and the Survivor 6 na naka formal attire na sila at signal na ito na susunod na ang announcement ng nanalo, just like in the previous batches.
The winners are:
Jewel Mische – Ultimate Sweetheart.
Aljur Abrenica – Ultimate Hunk.
(and get this!)
Mart Escudero and Kris Bernal – Ultimate Loveteam!
What! Naku, kung Ultimate male and female lang, eh sina Aljur and Jewel nalang and just ignore the loveteam even if meron! But an award is an award and let’s accept it.
And the 1st “prince” is Prince (haha, coincidence?) and 1st princess lang si Rich, boto ng tao lang siya talo.
Now i wish them all na ayusin naman nila ang work, huwag magaya yung mga bad happenings sa last batches. si Mart, huwag nang kumuha ng video sa mga CR or Dressing rooms.
And that’s it for My “Starstruck: The Next Level” Blog coverage, i thank all the people who have read the news and my opinions on this site. thank goodness i did not have any trouble at the comments and let’s all watch them in their respective projects.
Ano na kaya ang next na pag-uuspan ko that is like a series like this? im not interested in blogging PBB 2 anymore, there are better and more passionate bloggers out there on that subject.
