As aired at ABS-CBN Channel 2 on Sunday night, Joan Da, who also landed on the Bottom 2 during the 1st elimination night, was voted out during the 6th X Factor Philippines elimination night, while Allen Sta. Maria landed on the Bottom 2; where 80s singers Dingdong Avanzado and Randy Santiago sang with them.’
Da, who sang a slow version of Michael Jackson‘s “Billie Jean” last Saturday with the 80s theme and is the last finalist from the ‘Over 25s’ category, was picked judges Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, and Charice Pempengco to be eliminated, over Sta. Maria, who performed The Polic‘ “Every Breath You Take.”
During the Bottom 2 showdown, Da performed Auburn‘s “All About Him,” while Sta. Maria, the youngest finalist at 16, sang Willow Smith‘s “I Am Me,” and the three judges noted that the latter was the better showdown performer. Ms. Pilita Corrales, who was her mentor went up to the stage and hugged Joan Da.
Apparently, there were mixed reactions in social sites like Facebook and Twitter right after the announcement. A lot of X Factor Philippines fans are saying that Da should be eliminated, and that they are surprised Kedebon Colim did not even land on Bottom 2, which is based on text votes.
Colim joins Daddy’s Home, Gabriel Maturan, KZ Tandingan, Jeric Medina, and Allen Jane Sta. Maria as the remaining X Factor Philippines Top 6 finalists, who will continue the live competition next week. Besides Sta. Maria, Daddy’s Home is only finalist that has landed on the Bottom 2, when AKA Jam was eliminated.
