‘Your Face Sounds Familiar’ Final 4 celebrity-performers Edgar Allan Guzman, Jay-R, Melai Cantiveros, and Nyoy Volante will undergo their last transformations as music icons to pit against each other in Grand Showdown, live at Resorts World Manila on Saturday and Sunday, June 6 and 7, respectively.
The grand winner, who will be determined by public text and online votes, will win Php2 million, half of which will go to his or her chosen charity.
Viewers and supporters are encouraged to tune in to the Grand Finals Night as the Top 4 performers will reveal the music icons to be impersonated by them live during the show.
“Expect that I will give more than what I gave these past 12 performances. I will research, practice, and give my heart and my 110% for all of you,” said Nyoy, who recorded the highest overall score (257 points) among all performers.
Jay-R, who placed second with 246 points, shared, “Every week I get to learn new things and I apply all of them. So the more weeks I do them, I feel like I’m getting better and better. This grand showdown, I think I will be at my best.”
Throughout the program’s run, Volante was hailed as the weekly top scorer twice for his impersonation of Justin Bieber and Luciano Pavarotti, while Jay-R also topped the scores twice for copying Pepe Smith and Kenny Rogers.
Meanwhile, Cantiveros and Guzman both got 202 points for their 12 performances. They said both of them didn’t expect to get in, they thanked their fans for inspiring them weekly.
“I was really shocked, I didn’t believe it happened. God moves in mysterious ways. I didn’t expect anything because I expected the worst. But being in the bottom 4 is not the worst, because we’re all happy in the show. I feel like I just beat Mayweather,” shared Melai.
According to Edgar Allan, “I want to thank all those who trusted, supported, and believed in me since the start of ‘Your Face’. I promise that I will do my best to be the grand winner of ‘Your Face’ – that I promise.”
Both Cantiveros and Guzman were named top scorers once, for their impersonations of Elizabeth and Vice Ganda, respectively.
On Sunday’s live show, watch out for performances from special guests, including celebrity-performers Jolina Magdangal, Karla Estrada, Maxene Magalona, and Tutti Caringal.
