Marion Aunor : 2nd Runner Up Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs

The Grand Finals Night was held last February 24th. Personally, I think all the 12 finalists are awesome. It's actually great to be hearing new OPM (Original Pilipino Music) songs once again. Remakes aren't all that cool after all. 

So happy that Marion Aunor won 2nd Runner-Up. She's really my bet as she not only composed her own song, she also sang it during the competition. I was actually a bit worried when the sound system was lousy when she was performing her number. I was all prepared to scream "Sabotage!" LOL! So happy that she managed to be top 3!

I've also read recently that she signed up with Star Records and will have her own album by end of April this year. Wow! I think she's really talented and I look forward to hearing and seeing more of her on TV. I hope she gets to be a regular on ASAP. (Photo credit:

Here's Marion's performance of her original composition, "If You Ever Change Your Mind".......

Anne Curtis -- Controversial Birthday Number

I don't always get to watch ASAP in its entirety every Sunday, so it's no surprise that I missed out on Anne Curtis's controversial birthday production number. I also wouldn't have gotten curious if it didn't hound the local news about her controversial super revealing gown. (Disclaimer: Photos are from screen caps of said production number. I searched for it on YouTube 'coz I wanted to know what the hype was all about.) Here are the screenshots:

My initial reaction was "Wow!" Anne Curtis has been known to don really sexy and sultry gowns in the past and she has always managed to pull it off. I think the controversy started 'coz some people speculated that Anne wasn't wearing any undies. Personally, I don't think it was done in bad taste. It was just consistent with the overall sexy production number. Perhaps if it wasn't on a noontime family variety show such as ASAP, people would not rave about it. As it is, they will probably be stricter on sexy numbers next time around. Too bad huh? ^_^
