Instead of a Top 15, only a Top 12 will be called to the first cut during the finals on January 30. This will make the competition for one of the spots more intense, I must say. So the popularity votes through Vodi (which will start on January 23) is very crucial. Talk about getting just eleven (11) ladies with the highest composite scores plus one (1) who will sneak through using the back door.
In other news, construction of the stage inside the Mall of Asia Arena is in full swing. The workers have only a week to finish the set for the January 26 Preliminaries and the January 30 Finals. Keep in mind that work cannot be done between the 27th and 29th because of nonstop rehearsals happening at the venue. Are you excited, ticket holders? And oh, by the way, there is still no advice as to the sale of tickets for Preliminary Competition (which will also include the National Costume Parade). My inbox is flooded with questions and my answer is dependent on what the organizers will give me. Stay tuned for this.
Lastly, international singing superstar Flo Rida will be the guest performer for the finals. I know that you are expecting someone like Bruno Mars to do the singing, but it is what it is. Flo Rida it will be.
Gotta go now, my head is on a tailspin. Every single day. But I’m loving every minute of it. 🙂
