MANILA -- Janice Javier and Frenchie Dy, both powerhouse singers who gained popularity as contestants on ABS-CBN, had the audience on their feet after facing off on stage during a TV special aired Saturday.

Performing at Resorts World Manila, Javier and Dy sang "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" from the hit Broadway musical "Dreamgirls."

As they approached the hit's big notes, both singers started to pose as if in a sumo match, getting laughs from the audience.

Dy rose to fame in 2004, when she won the second season of the ABS-CBN singing contest "Star in a Million."

Javier, meanwhile, made waves recently with her runner-up finish on the recently concluded first season of "The Voice of the Philippines."

The singer's first-ever duet is seen as a highlight of "Kanta Natin 'To: A Celebration of 60 Years of Music," which gathered on stage several music stars including victors of ABS-CBN contests.

The TV special is part of ABS-CBN's year-long celebration of 60 years of Philippine television.
