After the official announcement that singer Anji Salvacion would be joining the latest season of Bida Star Singer this year along with current hosts Karina Bautista and Aljon Mendoza, Viral Scandal actress Karina said there are more exciting news about the online show.
“Ngayon mas madaming lives na magaganap so mas madami silang dapat abangan. Dahil tuwing Monday meron tayong ‘Bida Star Elimination Show’ which is shown on Facebook and Kumu. So dapat fina-follow niyo ang Star Hunt ABS-CBN para na-u-update kayo at nag-no-notify yan sa inyo.”
“On Tuesday naman may tinatawag tayong ‘The Cover.’ Ito ay live singing showdown featuring the contestants na mag-so-show sila ng talent in front of the Bida Star panel of judges. This will be on Kumu.”
“Wednesday and Thursday naman meron tayong ‘Online Gig’ kung saan mag-te-takeover sila sa Star Hunt social media accounts and kakanta sila dun to show their singing prowess.”
“And on Friday meron tayong ‘Bida Star Bagsakan’ on Kumu and importante ito kasi it can play a great role sa pagkapanalo nila. Parang paramihan ng magbabagsak ng virtual gifts in a certain span of time lang,” she said.
After three seasons of hosting the online talent competition, Karina shared why she is proud to be one of the faces of Bida Star ever since it started in 2020.
“First of all yung Bida Star kasi naging platform siya para mabigyan yung kapwa Pilipinos natin who are very talented in acting and singing, a platform and a way to reach their artista dreams, to perform on bigger and greater stages. So ngayon mas naka-focus tayo sa mga singers natin kasi alam mo naman pag Pilipino talagang mahihilig kumanta yan from karaoke to family nights and fiestas. So talaga ngayon parang yun ang highlight. Kasi for the past three seasons, mas acting siya. So ngayon ang hinahanap namin is a singer with a heart and a talent that could go through a lot and be someone bigger in the ABS-CBN stage,” she explained.
During the recent Bida Star Singer mediacon, Karina shared some advice for those aspiring singers who will be joining this season.
“Lagi naman kasing may kaba. Parang hindi talaga siya mawawala sa bawat craft na ginagawa mo. Kasi ibig sabihin lang nun ay gusto mo at nandun yung pressure na maging maganda yung kalalabasan ng craft mo. Pero kasi it’s also nice na maging in the present ka to enjoy what you’re doing, at saka yung kaba ma-le-lessen yan pag inaral mo ng mabuti. Same as acting rin naman, yung mga scenes na mahihirap para sa amin as actors, nakakakaba talaga pero it’s up to you to build confidence. Kailangan magkaroon ka rin ng kumpiyansa sa sarili mo at palakasin mo din yung loob mo kasi kailangan ipakita mo na kaya mo ‘to,” she said.
