Ever since it premiered six years ago, Your Face Sounds Familiar has indeed never failed to amuse and astound us with the celebrity transformations and performances that we witnessed in its past four stagings.
As it’s making a comeback this Saturday, February 20, here are five exciting reasons why we should look forward on its highly-anticipated Season 3!
Return of the three superstar judges
Throughout its last three seasons, the admirable trio of OPM icons-turned-judges Gary Valenciano, Sharon Cuneta, and Ogie Alcasid has not only delighted us with their witty remarks on the performances, but also with their hilarious banters with one another, the host, and the celebrity contestants as well.
Luis Manzano as the new host
Making our Your Face Sounds Familiar viewing definitely extra enjoyable is “Pambansang Host” Luis Manzano, who will be taking over the emceeing stint for this season. We’ve seen him spearhead a slew of Kapamilya shows through the years – with I Can See Your Voice as the latest – but let’s find out how this new gig will be different.
Versatile mentors Jed Madela and Nyoy Volante
Avid Ka-Familiars (as what the program’s viewers are called) know that before the contestants step on the stage, each of them had to undergo serious yet fun short trainings under the mentorship of seasoned performers Nyoy Volante and Jed Madela. They’re in-charge of guiding the celebrities on the most apt way of singing a certain song and of projecting the music icon assigned to them.
Online show hosted by Darren Espanto and AC Bonifacio
Joining the gregarious YFSF family are teen idols “The Total Performer” Darren Espanto and “The Ace Performer”, who will be the hosts of its online spin-off “KaFamiliar Online LIVE” that is going to be aired every commercial break on Kapamilya Online Live.
New studio with interactive live studio audience
And since we’re still in the midst of a pandemic, huge gatherings are still prohibited. Thus, in our pursuit of still giving viewers a truly extraordinary viewing experience, the production came up with the idea of having an interactive live audience in its new studio! Fans will be given the opportunity to virtually mingle with the artists at some point of the show and watch as if they’re also in the studio.
One main reason why we need to watch Your Face Sounds Familiar 3 is the superbly talented and greatly diverse lineup of celebrity impersonator contenders. We will see Pop Royalty Geneva Cruz heat up the stage, as well as Sample King Jhong Hilario giving us those awesome moves and the Soul Diva Klarisse de Guzman with her amazing vocals. We will also get to witness celebrities who will surely own the spotlight by mimicking famous world pop idols for the first time, including the “Rising Sweetheart” Vivoree, “Pinoy Big Belter” Lie Reposposa, “New Breed Actor” Christian Bables, “Viral Crooner” CJ Navato, and the “Idol Trio” iDolls.
Are you excited as us for Your Face Sounds Familiar 3? Well, you better not miss an episode of it every weekend, beginning this Saturday, February 20, on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z!
