The song bird’s look alike was very thankful that atlast she became the grand winner of the contest. Angeline once lost in the singing competition “Star for A Night” to Popstar singer Sarah Geronimo last 2007.

She went home with P1 million grand prizes, an entertainment showcase, diamond jewelry set, 1-year managing contract with Star Magic, a recording contract with Star Records and a brand new car. She will be seen also in ASAP Rocks together with the other finalists Krissel, Monica, K-La and Akiko.

When asked if who she want to work with in ASAP, she said she want to work with everyone but especially her friend Sarah G.

On March 6, they shared the stage in a duet in ASAP Rocks. It created an issue comparing the two singers and who’s better between them.  The new star is prepared in the intrigues that will be thrown to her and she knows it’s part of the business.

1DOL bids goodbye tonight on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida

“You’ll always be my number one…”

This is indeed one of the most remarkable themes from 1DOL, a musical drama series starring Popstar princess Sarah Geronimo.

Sarah played “Billie” and “Jean” which connects to her two leading men, Sam Milby and Coco Martin. She did “superstar” roles in her series Bituing Walang Ningning and Pangarap na Bituin as Dorina Pineda and Emerald Gomez respectively.

I was saddened when 1DOL will air its finale tonight. I watched first few episodes, but unfortunately I didn’t keep track of what had happened in this series. Its advertiser and promotion head Biboy Arboleda confirmed that 1DOL will not be able to fulfill its 10-13 week term on air due to poor rating and late air time. The show ends with a total of 35 episodes (7 Weeks) just three weeks earlier than its contract.

I hope that she will do another TV series again after 1DOL. Sarah will be forever be my number one Filipino female singer and I will always be her number one Popster.

Sarah Geronimo afraid of making a third film with John Lloyd Cruz

Acting as a sister figure, Judy Ann Santos recently provided love advice for singer-actress Sarah Geronimo.

This selfless act somewhat mirrors Juday’s role in the upcoming Wenn Deramas film, Hating Kapatid, where Juday portrays the stern older sister of Sarah while their parents work abroad. Juday generously offered her advice last night, during the press conference of the said film.

The gist of what Sarah has absorbed goes along the lines of not rushing your love life, that it will come naturally, so she should avoid forcing romance upon herself.

The young singer’s closeness with Juday seems apparent enough, but when asked if she confides the same way to her mother, Divine, she replied that, as a mother, her intuition is enough to recognize the difficulties of a young woman. Sarah’s difficulties, in this case.

Rayver Cruz, who was once romantically involved with Sarah, admitted that he has been going on friendly group dates with Christine Reyes. Sarah was asked if she was aware of this. She responded with a yes, and said that there were no issues regarding the matter.

She was asked if she regrets that the relationship with Rayver didn’t work out. She paused, and merely said that as of this moment, work, studies and family come first. Standard showbiz bullet dodging, Sarah.

Sarah was then asked if her communication routes with Rayver were still open. She dodged the question more badly this time.

Next we go to Sarah’s musical-serye with  Sam Milby. After finishing her recent project, Hating Kapatid, Sarah proceeded to work on a musical drama series with the effeminate Sam Milby. She mentioned that at this point, she has only gone on one taping day, as she’s busy touring the U.S. and Canada. Sarah elaborated that she has already done a scene with Sam, and added that thanks to Sam’s good looks, working with him is more enjoyable.

The next question she received cannot be more predictable: Is it possible that you will be linked to Sam in the future? Sarah answered that fleeting butterflies in your stomach are inevitable, and they don’t necessarily mean that a deep connection will be established. Again, standard showbiz answers. I wonder how many times this had been said during the course of local show business.

Filipino-Italian actor Matteo Guidicelli has previously disclosed that he possesses an admiration for Sarah. Sarah considers working with him on stage.

And finally, issues with John Lloyd Cruz.

Sarah was last year deemed as the Box-Office Queen for A Very Special Love, in which Sarah and John Lloyd played the role of lowly office employee and a hard-headed, short-tempered boss, respectively.

Last June 22, Sarah once again reigned as the Box-Office Queen for the sequel of the romantic comedy You Changed My Life. Sarah was unable to receive the trophy herself due to her tour. Her leading man John Lloyd, however, was able to happily accept his award from Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation.

In the same event, John Lloyd revealed the third installment of his movie with Sarah, which will be directed by the same director, Cathy Garcia-Molina.

Despite this, Sarah mentioned that plans for the film were not final. She admitted that she was afraid to follow up the success of the previous two films. She wanted to just leave it at that.

Sarah was asked how she feels about John Lloyd admitting his relationship with Shaina Magdayao. She said she was glad because John Lloyd seems proud of his relationship with Shaina.

Sarah stated that when she finally gets herself a boyfriend, she will, of course, also reveal it publicly.

555 TVC on John Lloyd and Sarah

MANILA, Philippines – John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo are the new stars of the newly launched TVC of 555 Corned Tuna, endorsing the Century Canning Corp.’s desirable, affordable and delicious canned tuna in the Filipino market.

According to an entertainment news article from the Philippines Star, “the TVC highlights 555 Corned Tuna’s unique Sarap-Ginisa taste, with real onion and garlic bits perfectly blended with generous tuna flakes, that is well-loved by kids and the two young stars.”

The new and effective commercial is about the story of Louie (John Lloyd) and Lara (Sarah), where Louie visits Lara in her house to express his true feelings for her. But this is not that easy to catch. Because in order to get to Lara, he needs to befriend her strict but cute little siblings first. He then brought the kids’ newest favorite delicious food, which is the 555 Corned Tuna, and then he served for them to taste. Then the kids immediately warmed up to him and everything went very smoothly.

“In the TVC, we wanted to show the Filipino tradition of panliligaw with a twist, instead of bringing the usual flowers or chocolates, why not bring food that the whole family will love? We hope that viewers would find the commercial entertaining, for sure most people would probably be able to relate to it,” says Macky Macapagal, 555 Corned Tuna senior brand manager.

“We had fun shooting the commercial, especially since we were with cute and talented little kids. Naalala ko tuloy nung bata ako, ganito din ako ka-cute at ganito din ako kagana kumain, lalo na pag ganito kasarap ang ulam,” says John Lloyd. “And I’m with Sarah, of course doing the commercial is really an experience to remember. We’re thankful for this opportunity.”

“I really love kids. I consider myself a kid-at-heart. Doing this commercial was really fun at masasabi ko pong masarap talaga ang 555 Corned Tuna, masustansya pa, kaya nga ito ang bagong favorite food ng mga kids,” Sarah also said.

The very cute kids as well as John Lloyd and Sarah’s playful or bubbly characters make the commercial fun and indeed very entertaining to watch. The new commercial effectively showcases the very Filipino family-orientedness, showing the 555 Corned Tuna’s Sarap-Ginisa, Panalo sa Pamilya! tagline.

Rason ng mga masusugid na tagahanga ng Pop Princess, malayo pa raw sa narating ng idolo nila ang kung anumang achievements ni Kim. Sa box-office ay kumita at sinuportahan raw ng publiko ang mga pelikulang pinagbidahan ni Sarah. Patunay raw nito ang pagiging Box-Office Queen ni Sarah last year, na mahihirapan daw abutin ni Kim.

Nang makausap ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Kris sa birthday badminton tournament ng kaibigang si Boy Abunda last October 28, ipinaliwanag ng TV host ang ibig niyang sabihin sa kanyang binitawang salita.
