The singing competition that launched in January 2016, Tawag ng Tanghalan sa It’s Showtime has paved way for the rise of ordinary people who once just dreamt of singing and sharing their talents on national television.
After its season 3 grand finals last September 28, It's Showtime is now giving celebrities the chance to sing on the TNT stage.
Shirley Fuentes was gong-ed Tuesday, October 8, during her performance in TNT Celebrity Champions.
Jaya said that she and Shirley are friends, but that does not mean that she will be giving way for Shirley's mistakes during the performance.
"Ito pong si Shirley ay matagal ko na pong kilala, isang kaibigan, pero alam n’yo naman ang Tawag ng Tanghalan ay talagang matinding patimpalak at dun pa lang sa pagkakamali mo kanina na I think naman obvious sa lahat," she explained.
According to the Punong Hurado Jaya, she cannot blame her because she got confused with what's happening around her.
"Hindi kita masisisi. Hindi lang nagtugma ‘yung ginagawa mo ro’n sa inensayo n’yo kanina. Ang daming pumapasok na kaba," she said.
Despite what happened, Jaya said everyone knew she had a beautiful voice and that this experience should not discourage her.
