OPM artist Chito Miranda gave his followers a glimpse of what usually happens behind the scenes in the second season of Idol Philippines, particularly between him and fellow judge Regine Velasquez.
The Parokya ni Edgar frontman took to social media to share some candid stories about Regine Velasquez.
My forever seatmate.🤟🏼😎
Mukha lang kaming nagkukulitan buong time, pero sa totoo, madalas seryoso din kami.
Minsan kelangan ko talaga humingi ng tulong when it comes to technical shit kaya buti talaga katabi ko si Ate Reg.

For Chito, he considers Regine his “forever seatmate” in the reality program. Apparently, it was the Asia’s Songbird who guided him in terms of technicalities as he watched the performance of the contestants throughout the competition.
“Mukha lang kaming nagkukulitan buong time, pero sa totoo, madalas seryoso din kami. Minsan kelangan ko talaga humingi ng tulong when it comes to technical shit kaya buti talaga katabi ko si Ate Reg. ‘Ate Reg...tama ba yung narinig ko? Flat ba yun,’” Chito shared.
The singer-songwriter shared how he relied on Regine when things get tough with the judging part. Chito talked about an instance wherein he had to compare notes with the veteran judge on a certain contestant.
“Minsan kasi di mo talaga mapapansin kung live mo pinapanood yung performance, lalo na kung super ganda ng tunog sa studio,” he added.
However, Chito noted how fun it is to stay beside Regine in the judges’ panel as he would usually turn to her to talk stuff outside of work. Chito added how he would never get hungry because of the amount of snacks under their table.
“Most of the time nagkukulitan lang talaga kami at pa-simpleng kumakain ng snacks na tinatago namin sa ilalim ng judges table,” he said.
“Minsan nga parang buffet na yung ilalim ng lamesa namin sa dami ng snacks: may chips, cookies, sandwiches...minsan nga may halo-halo pa,” he jested.
Meanwhile, Regine also shared the same photo on her Instagram with a less serious caption.
“Yung seatmate mong mahilig kang utangan. PARDS pautang naman oh,” Regine shared.
The two are currently the judges of the second season of Idol Philippines alongside Moira Dela Torre and Gary Valenciano.
