October 15 – The ten finalists reaped a lot of good reviews from the judges on Saturday’s performance night. For tonight’s results show, they give us a reprise of their “Kay Ganda Ng Ating Musika” production number. Ryan Agoncillo acknowledges Mel Villena and the Idol Band for their wonderful accompaniment to the finalists as well as the special participation of the San Miguel Philharmonic orchestra.

After refreshing the judges’ comments on their performances of the previous evening, Ryan asks those seated on the front row, namely, Pow, Jan, Miguel, Apple and Ken how they felt about their own performances. Most of them gave a reluctant “OK” reply, obviously nervous about the night’s voting verdict. Well, they needn’t have worried because their fans and supporters came through for them and they were all safe from being voted out this weekend.

Those in the back row, Arms, Jeli, Mau, Gian and Reymond were up next to be grilled. Ryan A. gave each one of them a rundown of how they did yesterday. Arms got both positive and negative comments. Her efforts at celebrating fiesta Pilar with her fellow Zamboanguenos paid off because Ryan said she was safe from being voted out. Jeli was next and she too was safe. Mau, Gian and Reymond are the bottom 3.

Ryan asked how the three of them felt and Mau said that she has grown used to this situation and gave a sad smile. The smile turned to genuine relief when Ryan declared that she was safe and should go and take her seat.

It was Gian and reymond left on centerstage. The judges were shocked. Particularly Mr. C who declared that he was shocked with a long “o.” He added that next week he was really going to be tough. So far he and his fellow judges were being the typical Filipino by giving their comments politely and he said that the voters were obviously not listening to their comments. If every week the best performers keep on getting voted off then were they just going to be left with singing nursery ryhmes? Mr. C was obviously getting frustrated with the results and we don’t envy his position at the moment. Mamita was more understanding and reiterated that each and every one of them were stars in their own right but since the competition began the contestants have become part of their family and it is always a painful exercise for them to say goodbye. Mamita added that Gian and Reymond’s journey to become stars will continue even after their Philippine Idol experience. Guest judge Hajji has only been with the contestants for the past week. He revealed that from Saturday’s performance his top 4 included Gian and Reymond who are now on the bottom 2. But he told both guys that they can hold their head up high that they made it up to the top 10 of the competition.

Giving the night’s verdict, Ryan says that Gian is safe and Reymond is out. The girls in the background are crying but Reymond is a good sport and accepts the verdict with a sad smile. We recall the highlights of Reymond’s performance as he bids his dream of becoming the first Philippine Idol farewell. He thanks the Lord, his family and his supporters for being with him every step of the way and assured them that this was not the end of his journey. Reymond sings “Be My Lady” on centerstage and the spotlight is on him for one last time.
