LRT 2 Legarda Station, Manila, October 25, 2017 – Young and talented applicants from different colleges and universities in Metro Manila were determined to be part of the newest idol group in the Philippines by joining the fourth leg of MNL48 registration and audition tour last October 25.
As early as now, MNL48 applicants should start gathering their supporters because unlike other competitions, this idol search will have no set of panel of judges; all you need is a solid voting system from the audience.
Supporters may vote for their favorite aspirant through MNL48 website or by downloading the mobile app on Google Play and App Store. Becoming a registered fan will provide a unique supporting system as they will have unlimited chances to “Like” their chosen applicants to make their ranks higher or keep them on top.
Reaching the top
Rachell Coronel, who has been consistently part of the top 10 in the website rank, auditioned during the event last Wednesday. The 18-year-old from Quezon City has been in the first rank for six consecutive months.
Coronel started campaigning for votes in Bulacan, Quezon City and Nueva Ecija when she registered as an applicant in MNL48 website. “Una, pumunta kami sa school ng friend ko, nanghihingi din kami ng emails dun sa classmates ng kapatid ko tapos may time din na sumayaw ako sa Nueva Ecija kasi may relatives din kami dun.”
Polyana Esquillo, on the other hand, a student from Lyceum of the Philippines University who has been persistently attending MNL48 tours in Luzon, shared how she reached top 21 from being 167th.
The 20-year-old stressed that she waited for this for many years. She was able to gain 1000 votes in just a week with the help of her friends, classmates and relatives.
“Dream ko po maging idol, kasi yung feeling po na nakakapagbigay ka ng happiness through your smile and performance, iba po; whenever I see those idols performing in the stage nakaka-overwhelm e parang gusto ko ako rin maging inspiration ng mga tao,” she shared with full of passion.
The MNL48 road tour is down to its last few auditions in Luzon and will be flying to Visayas. The first generation of MNL48 idol search will soon air on ABS CBN’s noontime show, “It’s Showtime” in 2018.
