Having competed in various singing contests since her childhood years, such as Batang Kampeon and Star For A Night, showing off her versatile vocal prowess and performing onstage are something that are not already new to Klarisse de Guzman anymore.
Thus, it didn’t come as a surprise that during her stint in Your Face Sounds Familiar, the The Voice of the Philippines Season 1 runner-up amazingly nailed her every transformation that made her a four-time weekly winner.
Now that the celebrity talent show approaches its finale this coming weekend, let’s reminisce the Soul Diva’s remarkable performances every week via this feature!
Week 1: Klarisse de Guzman as Christina Aguilera
For the pilot week, the 29-year-old belter got “rowdy” and “a little unruly” as she came through the “iconator” as the Grammy-winning American songstress Christina Aguilera, singing and dancing to one of her hits “Dirrty”.
Week 2: Klarisse de Guzman as Shakira
Portraying one of the best-selling Latin artists of all-time – Shakira – was absolutely a challenge for her as she didn’t only have to imitate her dynamic voice in “Whenever, Wherever”, but her sexy moves as well, which the jurors highly appreciated.
Week 3: Klarisse de Guzman as Jaya
Being able to perfectly impersonate Queen of Soul Jaya in her performance of “Hanggang Dito Na Lang”, Klarisse earned praises from the judges – who all know the veteran singer all too well. Thus, she was hailed as the winner for that week.

Her singing and dancing capabilities were once again put to the test as she was tasked to portray Britney Spears and sing the smash hit “Oops…I Did It Again” in the fourth week of YFSF 3.
Week 5: Klarisse de Guzman as Minnie Riperton
Her compelling take on the “Queen of the Whistle Register” Minnie Riperton and her hit “Lovin’ You” indeed made everyone la-la-la-la-la, as she pulled it off with utmost perfection. We were already amazed with the makeup team’s great job on her look, but we were more astounded when she was able to nail the high notes and the American singer-songwriter’s signature whistle. Thus, she was declared the weekly winner for the second time.
Week 6: Klarisse de Guzman as Mariah Carey

Week 8: Klarisse de Guzman as Lani Misalucha
She immediately went back to impersonating female belters in the succeeding weeks, with Lani Misalucha as her icon for Week 8. As always, she wowed everyone anew with her mellifluous performance of “Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin.”
Week 9: Klarisse de Guzman as Sharon Cuneta
Klarisse bagged her third win on Week 9 after her impersonation of singer-actress Sharon Cuneta, more so her version of “Sana’y Wala Nang Wakas,” truly astounded the jury, including the Megastar herself! It may have caused her to feel pressured since she was physically in front of her icon, but she just turned that into her motivation to do her best.
Week 10: Klarisse de Guzman as Ann Wilson
For some seconds of that night, Klarisse had the chance to live another life anew as she portrayed Ann Wilson, the lead vocalist of the American band Heart, and astounded us with her version of “These Dreams”.

Being able to once again perfectly pull off the overall look and powerful vocals of her icon, this time Aretha Franklin belting out her hit song “Respect”, the ASAP Natin ‘To mainstay wasn’t only able to win the favor of the jurors and her fellow celebrity contestants, but to also take home her fourth weekly winner award.
Week 12: Klarisse de Guzman as Toni Basil
