Janine Berdin; A Genuine Star of this Generation

Young and talented Janine Berdin is a semi-finalist for the 4th quarter of Tawag Ng Tanghalan in It’s Showtime. She instantly got my attention and admiration the first time I saw and heard her sang during the daily round. Her talent and X factor made me say: “this girl will make it to the semis and even to the finals.” I even got the same feeling I had when I saw Sarah Geronimo, Charice Pempengco (now Jake Zyrus) and KZ Tandingan perform years ago in their respective singing contest performances. Janine Berdin will definitely go a long way. It is evident as all her performances get standing ovation from the judges, gives viewers the goosebumps and make us teary-eyed, clap and exclaim “hanep, ang galing!”

Besides all the praises she get every after her performances, Janine remains kid-like and humble. I saw her Facebook account and started following her even before the semis and found out that she is actively mingling with fans and keeps them, us updated via Facebook Live too. I once commented while she’s doing FB Live and she actually read my message. I decided to send another message/comment few minutes before she ended the video and she once again got to read it. The last comment was actually for my daughter Keanna, they are born the same year. So, Keanna was all smiles when the Janine Berdin greeted her as she end her live update.

If you have not seen her performances in YouTube, let me share it here. These are the ones I consider my favorites of her performances since she joined Tawag ng Tanghalan. I only have 4 videos here but who knows, her performance today might be included in my fave list.

‘MAGASIN’, her first performance at the show:

Janine rocked the stage with her rendition of Eraserheads’ ‘Ang Huling El Bimbo’ for Semis Day 3 (Awit ni Idol theme):

Her Semis Day 4 got a standing ovation from the judges with her rendition of Yano’s ‘Banal Na Aso'(Judges pick theme):

Semis Day 5 performance was Kamikazee’s ‘Narda'(OPM theme), this has left Ogie Alcasid teary-eyed:

With her awesome and obvious talent, Janine Berdin is indeed a genuine talent in this generation. She has made her mark in the industry already, even if she has not won yet. Her talent is just oozing and it is as if it keeps on growing every time she performs. I really wish she make it to the finals. We are voting for her, actually. Go girl!

As we were waiting for all the finalists to finish their performances, we already have Astig Pinoy as our champion this season. WE, as I was with my daughters that time we watched Showtime. Astig Pinoy was totally awesome! Their grand finals performance was a combination of our unique culture and unique hip movements. As Joey Marquez mentioned, it was a right choice of music and good interpretation of it. It was quite predictable who will champ this season right after Astig Pinoy performed. Their talents are really inspiring, admiring and totally ASTIG! Awesome performance! Vice Ganda said it right, the blind folded Tinikling act/dance was the highlight of their performance and the most amazing act there was in the history of Showtime. Way better than the hip dances, loops, jumps and acrobats we have seen.

Congratulations Astig Pinoy! You guys rock and will definitely go a long way. Cheers to your success!
