      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.
