Meanwhile, for the “Acoustic” (#FreshVibes) category, it was Izay Acoustic who took home the crown, while Jaworski Sison was declared First Runner Up, followed by Kirby Cruz won Second Runner Up honors.
Finally, Vic Robinson truly rocked it out and displayed true rock spirit, and was eventually crowned grand champion under the “Rock” (#EpicRock) category of “Your Song of Excellence” Season 2. Genriel Diaz took First Runner Up honors, while Anne Ferrer wound up as Second Runner Up.
All grand finalists did their best to impress the judges, where the criteria for judging was 35 percent for Voice Quality, 35 percent for Creativity, 20 percent for Stage Presence, and 10 percent for Online Votes.
Special awards were also handed out to some of the grand finalists. “Acoustic” category grand champion Izay Acoustic was also awarded as “Asus Incredible Performer,” while “Rock” category First Runner Up Genriel Diaz won the “Predator Conquering Performance of the Night” award. For the last special award, “Ballad” category First Runner Up Rachell Laylo was adjudged as winner of the “Aromase Aromazin’ Performer” award.
The “Your Song of Excellence” Season 2 grand finals was also made special with the presence of VIP guests and representatives from the competition’s brand partners. Present were Taiwan Trade Center Manila Director Alex Lai, Christine Kuo, Manager, and Janine Tan, Senior Project Manager.
Also gracing the grand finals were James Huang, Country Product Manager of Asus, Sue Ong-Lim, General Manager of Acer, Jesse Tan, Vice President for Sales and Marketing at PC Express, who also represented Aromase, and Pola Vinoya, Publishing and Marketing Officer, and Aaron Calderon, Marketing Specialist, both from Ivory Music.
It was a night worth remembering, and many are still hoping for another season of “Your Song of Excellence,” which is slowly turning out to be one of the most anticipated singing competitions in the country.
Of course, since I was able to watch “Your Song of Excellence” Season 2 grand finals live, I was able to “fan girl” and take a photo op with Yeng Constantino, Bituin Escalante and Noel Cabangon, OPM Icons and part of the roster of judges.
