Theater actor and singer Nar Cabico won the first ever ‘Superstar Duets’ on GMA Network.
Cabico defeated fellow grand finalist Gerald Napoles after a three-performance finals on Saturday night, December 17. It can be recalled that last week, the two advanced to the finals after Rita Daniela was eliminated.
The show, hosted by award-winning actress, Jennylyn Mercado, is more of a comedy show combined with a reality talent contest. Each contestant was paired with one International star impersonators in every episode and their performances were judged by the resident judges, TV host and comedian, Allan K., traffic diva and the Philippines ballad princess, Aicelle Santos, and Asia’s romantic balladeer, Christian Bautista.
Cabico’s win was not a surprise, though. He has been one of the strongest contestants since the very beginning.
During tonight’s first two performances of the two grand finalists, the judges gave them the same scores, leaving the audience with no idea who will win though it was clear though that Cabico performed better than Napoles. The scores during their third performance plus the scores from tonight’s judge, AiAi Delas Alas determined the winner. Delas Alas herself was all praises to Cabico.
The 16-episode contest first aired on September 3, 2016, and garnered a huge viewership in Luzon that made it number 1 in terms of ratings against ABS-CBN’s ‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar’ that ended last week. Though it lost in terms of viewership nationwide.
