Now that MNL48 is down to 48 aspirants, the search for the first generation members of the newest idol group in the Philippines continues, and they will be facing new challenges in the coming weeks.
A week after the announcement of the Top 48, the finalists were given the chance to impress the viewers with their talents. They were divided into six groups, each performing different dance songs every day from Monday to Saturday.
Some girls grooved to the beat of Kesha’s Tik Tok, others danced to the music of California Girls and Fireworks by Katy Perry, Starships by Nicki Minaj, Shake It Off by Taylor Swift, and Domino by Jessie J.
On the other hand, the supporters got the chance to know more about their idol’s lives as each MNL48 finalist brought with them a person closest to their hearts during the MNL48 Online Update aired on its official Facebook page (mnl48official), Mondays to Saturdays.
Meanwhile, the remaining aspirants are striving harder after they knew that only the top 7 will get an opportunity to train with AKS in Japan, the talent management who handles their sister group AKB48.
The official first generation of MNL48 will also have an endorsement, recording contracts, and will be performing daily at the MNL48 theater and will have the chance to perform with some members of AKB48 and its other sister groups.
