I agree with you francis cubero. Thought charice won the competition in little big star. I can't imagine such talented amazing girl not winning the title. The same with Sheryn Regis against Erick Santos. Erick was favored over such a brilliant crystal voice of Sheryn. ABS-CBN always has a LUTO-MAKAW singing competition show/program.

napanood kita non salittle big star akal ko ikaw ang chap. pero hindi, sama nang loob ko ikaw ang manok ko pero ngayon sigi ipakita mong mali sila hataw na girl, goodluck pana talihing naka apak sa lupa
