Pinoy Boyband Superstar to End This Weekend

It all comes down to the final weekend.

This Saturday and Sunday night, ‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar’ will reveal the five aspirants who will compose the next great Pinoy boyband. The seven remaining heartthrobs will have a chance to impress the judges and viewers one last time, with the opportunity to either take the first spot on Saturday, or earn the other four spots on Sunday.

The seven singing heartthrobs of ‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar’ are as follows:

  • Ford Valencia, 21, the Hunky Haratista of Valenzuela City
  • Joao Constancia, 19, the Party Prince of Macau
  • Mark Oblea, 21, the Kwelang Bad Boy of Bacoor
  • Niel Murillo, 17, the Kanto Boy Next Door of Cebu
  • Russell Reyes, 18, the Fil-Am-azing Boy of Illinois
  • Tony Labrusca, 21, the Bad Boy of Vancouver
  • Tristan Ramirez, 23, the Buff Balladeer of Bulacan

The five winners of ‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar’ will earn exclusive Star Magic contracts, One Music recording contracts, Yamaha motorcycles, and P5 million in cash. Not only that, the name of the boyband will be revealed, along with their first single.

Since its premiere on September 10, ‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar’ has constantly ranked among ABS-CBN’s most-watched weekend shows. The reality/talent show averaged better than 30% (according to Kantar) during its four-month run, easily outperforming GMA’s counterpart shows.

The ratings performance of ‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar’ is also miles better than GMA’s own boyband search show ‘To the Top’, But considering that the latter aired on a different timeslot than the former, it could be unfair to judge ‘To the Top’ just by comparing it to ‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar’.

Still, it remains to be seen if the new boyband from ‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar’ will outperform ‘To the Top”s Top One Project. This up-and-coming boyband from ABS-CBN’s star-making factory should have high expectations on their shoulders, and for good reason, since Star Magic has had a reputation for churning successful talent.

Come this weekend, five will be left standing. Find out who among the seven singing heartthrobs will take their place as the Philippines’ next great boyband.

‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar: The Grand Reveal’ airs this Saturday after ‘Home Sweetie Home’, and this Sunday after ‘Goin’ Bulilit’, on ABS-CBN.

  1. Looks like the success of Pinoy Boyband Superstar will haunt GMA and their failure on handling To The Top will forever haunt them for a long time. Should they consider making another To The Top, GMA SHOULD take notes by watching Pinoy Boyband Superstar. If not, wala na.

    As for the replacement show, aabangan na lang natin kung ano ang mangyayari.

    • GMA just can’t make great talent shows, period. They seem to have no motivation to make another one dahil takot makipagbanggaan sa mga talent shows ng ABS. It only shows the superior coaching level of ABS against GMA talent-wise.
