THROWBACK: Unforgettable, astonishing performances of Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 1 Grand Winner Melai Cantiveros

From winning the Pinoy Big Brother second regular season, another accomplishment was added under the actress-comedienne’s belt after she triumphantly finished her stint in YFSF’s debut as its pioneer titleholder through her awesome reenactment of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” during the final showdown.

She had proven her versatility as she took on a diverse set of artists to impersonate, ranging from Nora Aunor’s sweet rendition of “Pearly Shells” to the insane stage antics of Kamikazee frontman Jay Contreras, and nailed them superbly.

Prior to her winning impersonation of Miley Cyrus, Melai bagged her first trophy in the contest with her striking resemblance of the late songstress Elizabeth Ramsey and seamless imitation of her gestures and voice.

Besides, her appearance every week brought excitement to juries Sharon Cuneta, Gary Valenciano, and Jed Madela and the audiences alike because of her hilarious expressions and utterances.
