Now that the top 12 finalists have been chosen, the race for ultimate stardom gets tougher in the search for the next female pop superstar in Star Power. As host and mentor to the hopefuls, Sharon Cuneta has helped lead the way by providing direction and being an inspiration to the finalists. "Talagang mabait siya and she gives us constructive criticism and she will also say it in a nice way. When she says it, you know that she truthfully means it and she'rsquo;s kept God very close to her, which I think you need to survive in showbiz. Sa tingin ko, the reason why she'rsquo;s made it this far. We'rsquo;re very, very thankful to her because she'rsquo;s the best in the business. Talagang mabait siya. Ang feeling ko, she'rsquo;s very warm, talagang mother figure and ako I miss my mom so much kasi nasa Canada siya, so siya, she'rsquo;s that mother figure to me now," Canada-born finalist K-La said. "Sobrang bait niya, para siyang nanay naming lahat. At saka nasarap siyang katrabaho kasi lahat ka-close niya, malapit siya sa mga tao kaya mahal siya ng lahat. Lagi siyang nagbibigay ng advice sa amin, nagbibigay ng mga tips," Sam of Taguig added.

The other finalists admitted that they felt overwhelmed getting up close and personal with the Megastar. "The first time na makita ko siya, sobrang na-star struck talaga ako. Parang shining star siya talaga. Tapos nakikita ko yung pagmamahal at respect ng mga tao at nung staff sa kanya. So someday kung pagpapalain akong manalo sa competition na ito at pinalad akong mabibigyan ng break sa show business, gusto ko talaga na maging katulad niya," Laurice from Bataan shared. "Nung na-meet ko si Miss Sharon, sobrang parang hindi ako makapaniwala kasi parang anghel siya na bumaba sa langit yung dating niya sa akin talaga. Sobrang napakabait at saka kasi parang nanay talaga siya sa akin. The way na yakapin niya ako, tapos lahat ng advice niya nakakatulong sa akin. Binigyan pa niya ang bawat isa sa amin ng prayer, every time na kakanta kami, talagang nakakatulong siya at talagang ginagawa ko iyon lalo na ngayon," Angeline of Manila attested.

The rest of the finalists also shared the same sentiments when it came to being under the tutelage of Sharon. Natasia of Bulacan said, "Kahit siya na yung Megastar, sobrang humble niya tapos very approachable. Hindi siya nakakatakot unlike sa ibang stars na magaalangan ka kung lalapitan mo o dededmahin ba ako, parang ganun. Si Miss Sharon, ibang iba talaga." Even the youngest finalist, Rose Anne of Batangas, agreed. "Kasi pinararamdam niya sa amin na tunay niya kaming anak, kaya napaka-suwerte namin." "Hindi talaga namin naramdaman na iba kami, talagang parang tunay na nanay ang trato niya sa amin. Sobrang napakabait na tao, down-to-earth na tao. Gusto ko rin na madasalin na tao si Miss Sharon,&am
