    There are many controversies plaguing this first “pinoy idol” show by GMA-7 but I can’t elaborate that here as it is in a very different niche.

    ang sabi ng mga judges kay jayann “Not just a singer but also a performer” ang sabi naman ng mga judges kay Gretchen ” You sang like a champion”.

    ang sabi ng mga judges kay jayann “Not just a singer but also a performer” ang sabi naman ng mga judges kay Gretchen ” You sang like a champion”, kung iisipin nating maigi in terms of the judges comments pareho lang deserving manalo kahit sino kina Jayann at Gretchen, pero in terms of money, si Jayann dapat ang nanalo kasi si Gretchen mayaman na.
