December 10, 2006- Big 3 at the Big Dome

top 3
Weekends for the past three months revolved around watching the live shows of Philippine Idol in SM Megacinema 3. I think my husband is finally relieved it will be over tonight. He had to endure 12 agonizing weeks accompanying me to the Philippine Idol Theater. My husband is not a very patient man when it comes to waiting time before the shows or grabbing parking space just to watch Philippine Idol. Tickets were getting more and more difficult to get even if we had reserved tickets . Tickets to the Finale of [tag]Philippine Idol[/tag] Top 3 Finalists were even more difficult. Just as I predicted, we had no tickets. Fortunately, our faces are so known to the Philippine Idol staff . We got patron seats and were seated close to the stage once again. Thanks Evelyn Joseph. Orange, blue and yellow themed cheering fans filled the Big Dome. In the beginning, the audio sounded horrible that I could barely hear the judges. I don’t know how it sounded on TV.

IMG_2745.jpgDuring the interview with DJ MO Twister who was seated two rows in front of us, I caught my husband’s white hair glistening on the TV monitor. Unsure that it was my husband, I pushed his shoulder to see if his head would bob onscreen. Haha, it was really him. You can view the gleaming white head of my husband in this Youtube video (thanks pinoy.rickey.org)

I felt that the performance wasn’t really that fantastic tonight with the exception of Jan Nieto. Who do I think will win? Even if I am rooting for Gian, I think the first Philippine Idol might be Jan Nieto. Why? First, he had the loudest and most organized fan base inside the Big Dome. Second, he stood out among the 3 finalists in at least 2 categories . Third, he has a strong voting bloc. I don’t really mind anymore who will finally hold the title of Philippine Idol. Gian lacked the enthusiasm and the drive. He was like the usual Gian. Predictable. The audience went wild after Mau’s last song. During the commercial break, Mau broke down in tears. Later on she told the crowd that she was touched with the song’s lyrics.

DJ Mo Twister predicts Jan Nieto will win Philippine Idol. The three finalists are excellent singers and performers. Tonight, I will watch the results at the Big Dome. They said tonight is the most exciting show of the Philippine Idol season. A lot of nervous fans are eagerly awaiting the fate of their Idol. I hope to make it in time after our 10th Worldwide Candle Lighting Event today.

Just read Jove Francisco’s recap as he wrote a lot of details that I am too lazy to blog about.

17 Thoughts on “Mau Marcelo, The First Philippine Idol

  1. Very nice review. I was only watching on TV. I agree Jan was very good tonight. He just proved that he’s really working hard for this.

  2. I guess I’m biased beyond belief, because I thought Gian was great. I still want him to win and my credit-less cellphone says that I did my part. I hate it how the organizers already know who’s going to win. I’m dying with anticipation here.

    too bad we didn’t see each other. patron seats are the shit. upper box B isn’t too bad though. Still…

    **crossing my fingers ** and praying doubly hard that Gian clinches it. Please…

  3. It was really a blast watching the show even I have just watched it, trough television only. IM SO HAND OFF WITH MAU. from the start of the competition I REALLY BET FOR HER. last night was an impressive performance especially with the last song she did. I HOPE SHE WILL THE TITLE COZ SHE REALLY DESERVES IT COMPARE TO THE OTHER TWO,HER VOICE IS SO POWERFUL, I KNOW SOMETIMES A LOT OF FILIPINO MIS JUDGED HER, BECAUSE ADMIT IT SHE’S BLACKBUT WHO CARES RIGHT? SHE IS REALLY A PERFOMRER. IF SHE CAN’TMAKE IT AS SHE HAVE SAID SHE DONT HAVE ANY TO SUPPORT FOR HER VOTE, BUT I KNOW PEOPLE BELIEVE ON HER.I HOPE PRODUCERS WIL GET TO SEE HOW TALENTED MAU IS.!WAY TO GOT MAU!

  4. @Candy- he had a lot of fans cheering for him that night

    @pat- you are a loyal fan. I was looking all over for you and Jovy. We had to leave early because we parked at Gateway and it closes at 12.

    @jenny- The fact of tonight’s winners lies on text votes. Let’s see. All 3 Idol finalists are excellent.

    i totally disagree noemi. i can accept that jan is excellent. he is good but not excellent. there is a border between him and gian or mau

  6. Hello Jovie my idol blogger, just want to congratulate whoever will be the 1st Philippine Idol..I just want to share some sentiments regarding last night’s event. Wala akong magawa kundi umiyak with Mau last night, siguro sa last song niya naramdaman na niya that the judges were cooking something else last night. Kitang kita naman natin ang performances e, I have nothing against Gian or Jan dahil magaling din sila pero kitang kita ang hirap ni Gian sa Flying without wings na hindi mo na madinig at hirap na siya huminga sa high notes at ang napakadaming flat ni Jan sa Evergreen and yet reaped nothing but Good Praises sa Judges..Ano ba!! May tenga ba kayo.. Yung Balut ni Mau napaka walang kwentang comment naman ni FM!! Definitely mahirap i-electrify ang araneta because Araneta is what??5 times or 10 times larger than Megamall!! And remember Tickets ang labanan how can you expect Mau to fill the rafters e ATENISTA at LASALISTA kalaban niya parang UAAP lang yan diba Jove!!, 2nd, Sino ba namili ng song ni Mau ano yun sinadya buti na lang may sumigaw!! Na Kayo pumili niyan!! Ganda kaya performance ni Mau dun !! and Third FM bakit mo ieexpect pumalakpak ang ibang kampo kay Mau e grandfinals na!! Kaya ayan sa last performance niya naiyak na si Mau dahil dama na niya e..Pano siya naging Darkhorse??Underdog?? Sa experiences niya kelan pa?? Duh!! Nagka Long Standing Ovation pa tuloy siya. One thing pa sa issue ngayon sa Bulletin na quote ko si Mr. C na mahirap manalo si Mau dahil walang fanbase kumpara sa generation nung 2 na young girls shrieking dahil cute sila, eto lang Mr. C ako naman maglelecture sayo “It is true na walang fanbase si Mau na ganun pero remember na yang mga shrieking young girls na yan ay temporary lang!! Dahil pag may pumasok na bagong mga guwapong singers magsisilipatan na yan, pero dont ever EVER UNDERESTIMATE the GAY COMMUNITY..It is very evident that MAU is a GAY ICON at pag mga gays ang nagluklok sa isang celebrity sa pedestal mahirap mapababa dahil mga GAYS LOYAL, like we did to REGINE VELASQUEZ, MARICEL SORIANO and the likes ok..Sugeestion ko lang kung may next Philippine Idol pa palitan si FM at Mamita masyadong Bias kay Jan si Mamita sobra!! Lastly after watching the show, dun ko naappreciate lalo ang aking nagiisang ASIA’s SONGBIRD na kahit may edad na, kahit paos, kahit nakaupo o naka harness pa buo pa din ang boses!! hehe GOODLUCK MAU!! WE ALL LOVE YOU

  7. uhmm…jan maybe good, but mau and gian are great!! :) there is a difference… jan is not of the same caliber as gian and mau!

    its like praising a very good high school student who improves every semester and a consistent honor student… my opinion lang!

  8. Congratulations to our fellow Lucenahin, Ms. Maureen “Mau” Marcelo
    our first Philippine Idol. You made us all your kababayan very proud and you have put the progressive City of Lucena on the entertainment map. More power and may the Good Lord guide you in your future endeavours!

  9. But Mau won!
    Buti na lang.

  10. @mark- yay for Mau. I am glad she won. I was just saying that based on reality, Jan would win . You could see that Mau won by 1.42% very close fight

  11. congratz mau… u deserve naman na maging first philippine idol… kc maganda tlga boses moh…. kakaiba tlga ang voice quality moh…
    idol….
