Greggy Santos and Geoff Taylor both heaved a sigh of relief after host Regine Velasquez announced that the following Saturday would be a non-elimination night for the male contenders of Are You The Next Big Star?
The two male bottom-dwellers during last week's Michael Jackson-themed gala are guaranteed to stay for at least one more week in the competition, along with Alex Castro and Jay Perillo.
Meanwhile, Alexa Ortega finds herself in the bottom circle anew after she failed to impress the judges with her rendition of "I'll Be There," making it her third time to be in the bottom list.
With Frencheska Farr and Zyrene Parsad sailing smoothly into the finale, the race for the third and final slot for the remaining ladies is now down between Alexa and resident rocker, Camille Cortez.
The results of the text votes will partially determine who among them will move on to the penultimate round of the competition.
Fans can watch their favorite contenders live in different SM outlets on August 2 at SM Fairview, August 8 at SM Cebu, and August 9 at SM Marikina.
More twists and surprises are coming as the remaining contenders of Are You The Next Big Star? bring back the classic sound of the '80s this Saturday, August 1, after Pinoy Records on GMA-7.
