After Tawag ng Tanghalan All-Star Grand Resbak finalist Jex De Castro's performance, Vice Ganda shared his thoughts about him.
"Para sa'kin, ako lang naman 'to, feeling ko ito ‘yung lalaking Jona (Viray)," he said.
He then explained why he thought so by describing Jona's skill.
"Si Jona ‘di ba ‘yung kahit anong ipakanta mo, ‘yung ang taas na tapos biglang may itataas pa ta’s mabibigla ka (na) kaya niya, parang walang kahirap hirap," he said.
"She sings song so effortlessly," he added.
Vhong Navarro then noticed that Jex uses songs that are usually sang by women, so he asked why he does not sing pieces that are popularized by men.
According to Jex, he took Hurado Jaya's comment before as a challenge for the competition.
"Sabi nga ni Ms. Jaya the last time, 'Keep on doing that kasi mas nabibigyan mo ng bagong flavor ‘yung kanta, nabibigyan mo ng own version mo,'” he said.
"Na-challenge ako na 'bakit hindi ko gawin ‘yung songs na kakantahin ko sa Tawag ng Tanghalan, puro pambabae?'" he added.
Jex said that he still feels nervous during performances, but uses it as a motivation to do better.
"Nando’n pa rin ‘yung kabado ka lagi every performance pero feeling ko mahalaga ‘yung kaba tuwing magpe-perform ka kasi mas lalo mong iniingatan at ginagalingan," he explained.
