GMA Network’s newest singing competition The Clash, finally invades Filipino homes as it makes its grand and highly-anticipated premiere on July 7.
The program introduces the Top 62 clashers who will compete in intense one-on-one battles and outdo each other to become the country’s next singing sensation.
The Clash host Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid leads the toughest, fiercest and most talented hopefuls in a cutthroat and head to head encounter every week. Now that the show is about to start, she can’t wait to witness the unique talent and star power of the clashers.
“Since the auditions started, na-excite ako kasi ang dami nilang nakapasok. Mag-sa-start na yung main elimination round and mas makikita natin yung talent nilang lahat. Excited ako na magsimula yung pagka-clash ng bawat isa sa kanila,” the Kapuso singer said.
Joining her in searching for the country’s newest singing sensation are Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha, Asia’s Romantic Balladeer Christian Bautista and Comedy Concert Queen Ai Ai delas Alas as The Clash judges.
After a long time of being away in the Philippines, Lani reveals she definitely misses working with Regine, Ai Ai and Christian that’s why she grabbed the opportunity to reunite with them in this project.
“I think this program is a refresher for me because makakatrabaho ko sila Regine, Ai Ai and Christian na years ago ko na rin nakasama. This time, it’s different kasi we’ll be working as a team to choose kung sino ba talaga ang deserving to be the first The Clash champion kaya nakaka-excite.”
Ai Ai, on the other hand, commended the uniqueness of the show and how it can give the contestants the chance to prove themselves.
“Natutuwa ako kasi sobrang different ng The Clash from other singing competition. Iba yung concept nila. Mayroon silang chance na ipakita talaga yung husay nila in singing,” she said.
Christian, in turn, shared some traits that a clasher should possess to be able to get his vote.
“Para sa akin, makukuha nila ang vote ko if in terms of singing, they chose the right song and makanta nila ito ng maayos. And of course, in terms of performance, they have to connect with us—the TV audience to make us feel their song,” he said.
Kapuso heartthrob Andre Paras and talented host Joyce Pring join the program as they give updates on the aspirants’ quest for musical stardom.
Who will stand out among the rest and survive the most intense singing search in the country this year? Can they survive the intense and emotional battle of the singing search?
Under the helm of director Louie Ignacio, catch The Clash every Saturday and Sunday night beginning July 7 on GMA. (Press Release)
