Heart Evangelista to host Idol Exclusives

A reliable source in ABC confirmed that young actress and veejay Heart Evangelista will host Philippine Idol Exclusives, your daily news and updates show on anything Philippine Idol.

When she will appear for the show, however, is still unconfirmed (although we can surmise that Heart will debut on Monday, September 4).

Idol Exclusives has ben running for three weeks and a lot of juicy info have been featured. For one, we took a peek on what songs some of our Top 12 Men will most likely perform this Saturday at SM Megamall Cinema 3.

Philippine Idol Updates male frontrunner Drae Ybanez would be singing "What You Won't Do for Love" by Bobby Caldwell, while poll runnr-up Jan Nieto practiced "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon and Garfunkel.

Baguio rocker Ramirr Grepo will perform the ultimate rock ballad "Bed of Roses" by Bon Jovi, while Gian Carlo Magdangal plans on tracing back to his musical roots by singing Kenny Loggin's "Footloose."

It seems that only Freddie Cabael would be singing a Filipino song, and it's not the usual pop or RnB that we are familiar with. He plans to sing "Macho Guwapito" by Rico J. Puno.

Also, take a look at the picture on your left. This is a miniature of the Philippine Idol stage that will be mounted in SM Megamall. In true Idol fashion, LCD screens and neon lights will fill this stage. Special thanks to jeric234 of Pinoy Exchange for this screencap.
