PRESS STATEMENT FROM GMA-7:
"This Sunday (November 6), witness the fierce word wars between the mentors and judges as the music icons defend and support their protégés in fighting for survival in the battle for the big break.
"The remaining 8 protégés competing for the slots to the finale is all set to conquer the centerstage with the theme "Shining Moment." Protégés have to perform with the best song that will make them shine to get the approval of the judges and votes from the audience. At the end of the gala night, another mentor-protégé tandem is about to be booted out of the battle stage.
"The week has taken all the contenders to a roller coaster of emotions-Denise celebrated her birthday and got a heart-warming talk with her father; Nomer asked for the approval of Denise's parents to court their daughter; Lirah was ranting about not hearing from her mentor for quite a while; Sander of So Wat spewed loathsome words against Kenneth because of house chores; and Kenneth once again exploded with tears in front of his mentor, Jay-r.
"How will all these events push the Final 8 to have their "shining moment" on stage?
"Protégé nation must also watch out for the big twist that is going to happen on the show for the very first time. Plus, a special guest will be joining the panel of judges: an acclaimed actress and renowned musical theater artist, Ms. Eula Valdes, will be adding more spice to the talent search.
"Witness as the third elimination round unfolds this Sunday night on the Live Gala and Results Show of Protégé: The Battle for the Big Break!
"The Live Gala airs after Kap's Amazing Stories and the Results Show happens after Sanib-Pwersa on GMA-7."
