Laguna’s very own Zephanie Dimaranan received the highest percentage of votes from the viewers and highest score from the judges of “Idol Philippines” as revealed during the show’s third elimination episode on Sunday, July 14, 2019.
Zephanie was the only Idol hopeful among the Top 8 who received a full standing ovation from the panel of judges which is composed of Moira dela Torre, James Reid, Vice Ganda, and Regine Velasquez-Alcasid after her powerful rendition of Sarah Geronimo’s “Isa Pang Araw.”
The Asia’s Songbird made a fearless forecast:
“I think one of the reasons why you improve is because you listen to the musical director and iyong nagki-critique sa’yo. The first time I saw this [aura] was with Sarah Geronimo [more than a decade ago]. I’ll see you in the grand finals,” she said.
On the other hand, Fatima Louis and Sheland Faelnar hit bottom two and got eliminated.
Joining Zephanie in the Top 6 next week are Lucas Garcia, Lance Busa, Miguel Odron, Elle Ocampo, and Dan Ombao.
