What is as incredibly fantastic as having the pillars of OPM sing one heart-wrenching medley of Pinoy hits on ASAP 20?
It’s pure non-Filipinos singing the classic OPM tunes, even with the attempt at nailing the ideal accent and tone in one captivating number for Pinoys to appreciate and cheer loudly. And, this is what we all witnessed in the past two weeks since I Love OPM premiered on ABS-CBN.
While the concept tickles our fancy to no end, the show does not only leave the judges Martin Nievera, Lani Misalucha and Toni Gonzaga, the live audience and televiewers at home amused and amazed with every move, every note sung, and the cute pronunciation and intonation of those lovely Tagalog lyrics. It also serves its purpose in bringing to the Filipino audience the best talent available, local or foreigner, promoting and carrying the magnificent beauty of OPM.
This makes it a top-rating draw every weekend night on ABS-CBN!
Here are 11 unforgettable performances in the show so far that clearly prove this:
1. Sumner Mahaffey (USA) – “Pag-ibig” by Yeng Constantino-Asuncion
Sumner is seen to mesmerize youngsters with his Bieber-like charm. But above it all, he made Yeng Constantino-Asuncion’s “Pag-ibig” very much felt by the shrieking audience. 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11
