Pinoy Idol hits the airwaves

Finally, the long wait is over! Pinoy Idol 2008 launched its pilot episode last April 5th. GMA 7 got the franchise to air the Philippine version of the Idol series. It is hosted by Raymond Gutierrez, with the three controversial judges, Ogie Alcasid, Wyngard Tracy and Jolina Magdangal. The winner will receive P1,000,000, a house and lot, a brand new car, a recording contract with Sony BMG Music Philippines, a television contract with GMA Network among other prizes.

What got me excited is the fact that FremantleMedia has given the rights for GMA-7 to telecast Pinoy Idol even in its US cable channels. That means filipinos in the US can also witness the born of the first Pinoy Idol. I don't have the talent in singing but I do appreciate good singers and I believe a lot of Filipinos are gifted in that aspect. It's the judges' task to sift through the multitude of hopefuls who went to the auditions and spot those that have left a lasting impression on them. In Pinoy Idol, we would all witness the rise of the new generation of singers as they conquer the stage that marks the grueling elimination rounds. I can't wait to see the finalists who made it to the Top 24.
