For many, the meaning of the song is what makes it their favorite which is why the lyrics is just as important as the melody itself. But what happens when the lines are translated into a different language? TNT Hala tried the Translation Challenge and they’ll tell you it’s easier than it sounds.
Hazelyn Cascano was quick to recognize “Dying Inside To Hold You” by Timmy Thomas which was also covered by Darren Espanto. As rare as it is to hear the Tagalog word “aranya”, she still knew it was “Chandelier” by Sia. Meanwhile, Lucky Robles still stole the win by guessing Air Supply’s “The One That You Love,” Celine Dion’s “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now” and “Through the Rain” by Mariah Carey. Alfred Relatado still managed to score by the end thanks to “I Write the Song” by Barry Manilow.
