Tres Kantos is We Love OPM Grand Celebriteam


071816-TresKantos_PUSH.jpgTres Kantos, composed of Kapamilya male singers Bugoy Drilon, Jovit Baldivino and Dominador Aviola, became the grand champion of We Love OPM: The Grand Celebrity Sing-offs on Sunday, July 17 live at the Resorts World Manila. The group, which was mentored by Erik Santos, won P2 million. Half of their winnings will go to their chosen beneficiary.

Tres Kantos was able to garner 80.45%, the highest number of combined public votes from texts and online voting after they performed the Ryan Cayabyab hit, “Nais Ko.”

Mr. C, who was also present during the grand finals, commented, “Nakakabaliw. Sobrang ganda. I was very surprised. I almost thought it was a new song.”

The group became emotional upon the announcement, specifically Dominador, addressed as Daddy D, who was a contestant of It’s Showtime’s Tawag ng Tanghalan. Erik told Daddy D that finally, he can have his house fixed.

Tres Kantos bested Yeng Constantino’s group Oh My Girls, composed of Ylona Garcia, Alexa Ilacad and Krissha Viaje. The teen group performed the Smokey Mountain hit “Kailan.” According to Ryan, he likes their show’s doll-themed concept. They got 58.27% of public votes.

Lastly, KZ Tandingan’s group O Diva, comprised of female belters Klarisse de Guzman, Liezel Garcia and Emmanuelle Vera, gathered 57.78% of votes after they performed “Limang Dipang Tao.” Mr. C also appreciated their retro-themed performance, noting that it was very good.
