Tonight Is The Night!

Yes! Tonight is the much-awaited premiere of Philippine Idol. At 8PM on ABC-5, right after the premiere of Joey De Leon's "Teka Mona," we will witness a TV phenomenon as it unfolds. Don't forget to post your first impressions about the show at the chatbox.

Meanwhile, in an article at Philippine Daily Inquirer, ABC-5's entertainment head Perci Intalan revealed that the Gold Passers from Visayas and Mindanao will be arriving tomorrow in expense-paid first-class transportation via Super Ferry, while all the Gold Pass receipients from Luzon will be shuttled by bus from different pick-up points in selected SM Malls. All of them will be accomodated in Bayview Park Hotel, where a welcome dinner awaits them tomorrow night.

However, 3 Gold Passers backed-out (two from Luzon and one from Visayas) with reasons ranging from family problems, an unpermitting spouse, to working abroad. This means, 166 aspirants remain to battle it out at the Theater Eliminations, which will be held in Cultural Center of the Philippines Main Theater from August 1 to 3. Only 24 of them will make it to the televised semi-finals. Read more of the article here.
