GMA Network’s original musical competition – The Clash – is back and bigger than ever, featuring a new set of talented contenders, hosts, and exciting twists throughout the show.
The Clash auditions were held worldwide to search for the best singers. And after months and thousands of potential contenders, the Top 64 Clashers have now been chosen and are all set to battle it out on The Clash stage – “Isa laban sa lahat.”
The second season introduces the new Clash Masters Total Heartthrob Rayver Cruz and Asia’s Pop Diva Julie Anne San Jose who will present the exciting twists and intriguing turns throughout the season.
Off-cam and backstage stories of the clashers will be shared by the well-loved tandem of Rita Daniela and Ken Chan as Journey Hosts.
Leading the search for the newest singing sensation once again is The Clash Panel composed of Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha, Asia’s Romantic Balladeer Christian Bautista, and Comedy Concert Queen Ai Ai delas Alas.
For Lani, having a good voice is not enough. “’Yung pipiliin namin ay kung sino ang karapat-dapat maging grand champion. Kung minsan, nagkakasabay na pareho silang mahusay, pero ang iko-consider ko rin is star quality.” she said.
Christian shared that he is looking for an all-around performer, “All-around performer. Hindi kailangan kang maganda, gwapo, kailangan talaga sa pag-perform mo, mahuli kaming lahat. Dapat may puso kapag kumanta.”
Ai Ai, in turn, is also looking for someone with a “wow factor”, “May mga Clasher na pagpasok pa lang ng stage, commanding na ‘yung presence, tapos kapag kumanta na, mapapa-wow ka talaga. Dapat ‘yung huhulihin niya kami at ‘yung audience sa buong performance niya.”
Who will be proclaimed as The Clash Season 2 Grand Champion?
