It may have been running for more than a score but ASAP is getting more exciting as years goes by.
From merely showcasing the singing and dancing skills of the Kapamilya stars through a series of musical numbers, it launched various segments which do not only exhibit the talents of our favorite artists, but have absolutely aroused the audiences more every Sunday.
And in April this year, our fave all-star afternoon party on television introduced ASAP Versus, a boxing-inspired bout, in which instead of exchanging forceful punches, two featured singers or groups will attempt to "upstage" one another by belting out one solo song each and blending in to a duet song.
The segment commenced on April 22 with the showdown of Jed Madela and Morissette Amon in singing the timeless classics of Whitney Houston "I Have Nothing" and "Run To You", respectively, then tied up in a hair-raising performance of "One Moment in Time".
Just recently, OPM Legends Renz Verano and Lloyd Umali serenaded us with their renditions of Michael Bolton hits "Said I Loved You... But I Lied", "When A Man Loves A Woman", and "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You".
Since ASAP Versus is gaining popularity and a huge following, ABS-CBN.com Entertainment thought of asking the netizens who among the Kapamilya homegrown talents they wish to see on its upcoming face-offs through the survey we published on the Official Facebook page of ABS-CBN.
Going through the comments, majority of the netizens clamor for Tawag ng Tanghalan Season 2 grand finalist Reggie Tortugo against Pinoy Prince of Pop Erik Santos. Probably, it is because of their similar vocal range and impressive stints in the respective TV singing competitions they participated in (Erik was the grand winner of Star in a Million aired in the early 2000s).
It may be impossible, but many commenters are still hopeful for an ASAP Versus episode featuring seasoned singer Carol Banawa and TNT graduate Marielle Montellano performing a medley of heartwarming songs in which they are incredibly among the best.
The clash between TNT alumna Arabella Dela Cruz and The Voice Teens’ Isabella Vinzon is going to be a dream come true for their supporters, since these damsels are dubbed as each other's dopplegangers and possess powerful voices.
A showdown between trios COVE, comprised of TNT alumni Christian Bahaya, JM Bales, and Sofronio Vasquez, and BuDaKel, composed of crooners Bugoy Drilon, Daryl Ong, and Michael Pangilinan, also hypes up viewer anticipation since their renditions of famous records tugged our heartstrings and made us all kilig.
Furthermore, netizens look forward to the never-before-seen singing battle between JK Labajo and his The Voice Kids Season 1 coach Bamboo, Sam Mangubat and Iñigo Pascual, and Katrina "Suklay Diva" Velarde and Jona Viray.
Are these requested face-offs going to happen soon? Let's all find out by not missing the weekly party on ASAP every Sunday at noontime.
