Philippine Idol – 8th Elimination

idol1.jpgphilippine-idol-november-01.jpg
(He’s got the skinny, take it away Jove) One visitor posted a question here last night after the show. She was asking me if I was one of those inside the Philippine Idol theatre who cried after the elimination of Pow Chavez.

The answer’s no. Why? Because I was angry, more than sad. When I got home after the show, I watched the tape, dun, duon ako naiyak, in the privacy of my bedroom.

Why? Because of this emotional valedictory from Pow:

Pow Chavez: (before the announcement)
“Gusto ko lang magpasalamat sa lahat ng taong tumanggap sa akin, ah, iyun pong dalhin nyo ako sa stage na ito malaki na pong karangalan sa akin!”

Pow Chavez: (teary goodbye)
“Baka hindi na ako makakanta (pause) di ako umiiyak (pause) ah gusto ko lang pong magpasalamat sa (pause MR C hands her a hanky) mula po sa puso ko (pause) nagpapasalamat po ako tinanggap ninyo ako at nakarating ako ganito kalayo (pause) di po ako sumasali sa mga singing contest kasi natatakot ako na baka hindi nyo ko tanggapin, isang taong kagaya ko, pero kaya po ako narito kasi po gusto ko kumanta….”

(As you have seen on TV, people were crying and weeping as the event unfolded. It was sort of a group weep. This is definitely a first in Philippine Idol history. Ito na ang pinaka malungkot na results show ng first season ng PI)(www.starmometer.com, please please file this moment in your youtube account, please?)
