LANI Misalucha is one of the judges of “The Clash, Season 2”, along with Ai Ai de las Alas and Christian Bautista. Recently, a female contestant named Janina Gonzales won her admiration for singing the song “New York State of Mind” ala-Barbra Streisand.
“I was awed by her passion for singing,” says Lani. “Favorite ko rin ang song na 'yun at gandang-ganda ako. When I heard her sing it, napa-wow ako. Napantayan niya 'yung expectations ko and that was really, really nice.”
Lani was even more impressed when Janina revealed that she’s actually a law student who’s very busy with her studies but she just loves singing, so she always finds time to hone her craft as a singer. Lani says the job of a judge in The Clash is really very tough. "Kasi ang daming magaling! Nahihirapan talaga kami ng co-judges kong sina Ai Ai and Christian kasi wala kaming itulak-kabigin sa husay nila. It's really not a joke to be in our positions."
Last night , four of the remaining seats at the Top of the Clash are up for grabs as the last 16 Clashers fight it out for their destiny. Who will win between the teacher’s daughter from Quezon City and a young kontesera who was inspired to join The Clash by fellow Cebuana and last year’s The Clash grand champion Golden Canedo? Who will emerge on top between a farmer’s son from Catanduanes and a proud Mangyan from Oriental Mindoro? Whose dream will come true between a plucky teenager raised by her single mom from Quezon City and the singing Beauty Queen from Cebu? Who will The Clash Panel favour between the musically inclined high schooler from Parañaque and a fresh college grad whose voice has taken him from Davao Del Sur to The Clash Arena?
You would have known the answers by now, but tonight, Sunday, 8 Clashers are vying for the last 4 spots to complete the 32 seats on The Top of the Clash! It will be a battle of crooners between Myrus Apacible and Jonric Bravo. The second clash is between two mommies Angel Ram and Jenny Ang. Two cute clashers will battle it out for their place on Top of the Clash; Mark Mendoza versus Aldrich Ang. And who will take the last seat between Fritzie Magpoc and Shane Garciso?
