Jason Dy wins “The Voice of the Philippines 2” title, Alisah Bonaobra is runner-up

Balladeer Jason Dy was declared the champion of “The Voice of the Philippines” Season 2, defeating power belter Alisah Bonaobra by a vote of 53% to 47%. Dy was mentored in the competition by pop superstar Sarah Geronimo while Bonaobra was coached by international hip-hop artist Apl D Ap from the Black Eyed Peas.

In their final showdown, Jason sang Ariel Rivera’s “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin” while Alisah performed Celine Dion’s “All By Myself.”

Leah Patricio from Team Lea Salonga and Rence Rapanot from Team Bamboo Manalac also made it to the Final Four. Below is a running diary of the second night of the two-day finals special, as originally posted in this link:

ROUND 3 (Solo performance)

Rence Rapanot – “Tayo’y Mga Pinoy”

Leah Patricio – “Run To You” by Whitney Houston

Jason Dy – “Angels Brought Me Here” by Guy Sebastian

Alisah Bonaobra – “Go The Distance” from “Hercules”

(Duet with coach)

Leah Patricio and Lea Salonga – “If I Were A Boy” by Beyonce / “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morisette

Jason Dy and Sarah Geronimo – “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys and Usher

Alisah Bonaobra and Apl D Ap – “Hero” by Mariah Carey (with a rap interlude composed by Apl)

Rence Rapanot and Bamboo – “Hinahanap-hanap Kita”


COMMENTARY: I felt that Alisah bested Jason Dy during the final round because of her powerful delivery. Nevertheless, I agree with a Twitter user who noted that Dy’s chosen song didn’t require that style of singing (unless he chose the arrangement for Regine Velasquez’ of “Minsan Lang”).

For those old enough to remember, this is similar to the time when Erik Santos defeated Sheryn Regis in Star in a Million in early 2004.

COACH LEA VIA TWITTER: The outspoken Broadway diva said that she is “very happy” with the show’s conclusion. “It’s been such a wonderful season. I can’t be angry or sad about it,” she wrote, adding that Leah Patricio and her team “fought a great fight.”

Last week, she urged the viewers of The Voice to vote for the best artist, and not for the one with the best story. “Their stories are for you to get to know them better as people, but not to elicit pity. So vote with your ears as well as your hearts,” she said.
