On Your Face Sounds Familiar
, Kakai Bautista earned a standing ovation from the jury, the audience and even her co-impersonators.
Kakai did a perfect copy of Julie Andrews singing the well-loved classic “The Sound of Music.”
Gary Valenciano was in awe of Kakai’s performance. “Ano yung tinatanong mo, kung nagustuhan namin? Ay, humigit pa. Kasi tonight, naipakita mo sa lahat kung anong klaseng artista ka. Si Ms Julie Andrews, meron din pinagdaanan yan sa buhay niya e, nagkaron ng problema sa throat. As a matter of fact, I’m not even sure kung pwede pa siyang kumanta today, but if she sees this, babalik at babalik ang lahat ng memories niya dun sa panahong pwede pa siya kumanta. Because Kakai, you don't only look like her, you sound like her and you were her. Dito nanggaling, sa kaluluwa mo yung ginawa mo ngayon …wow!” he said.
Judge Jed Madela also enthused, “Kakai finally! This is the most perfect na performance mo. You looked like her from the moment na lumabas ka sa iconator and the first note na lumabas sa bibig mo yun na yun. You nailed it, talagang klinaim mo na etong icon na ito na Julie Andrews. You were 100 percent Julie Andrews.”
Judge Sharon Cuneta followed suit and praised Kakai’s performance. “Eto na yung dinadasal ko matagal na makakuha si Kai ng ganitong icon para mainterepret niya. Yung sinabi ni Jed, lahat ng sinabi niya at sinabi ni Kuya Gary, lagpas-lagpas pa dun ang puri ko sayo tonight. Kaya natutuwa rin ako, like with Denise (Laurel), nakikita dito yung kaya mo pang gawin na hindi nakikita ng iba dahil komedyante ka. Congratulations.”
Kakai was left teary-eyed after the judges’ comments. The singer is among bottom 3 contestants for the past 6 weeks of the show. She scored a whopping 39 points last Sunday, followed by Denise, who got 21 points and Michael Pangilinan, with 20.
