Rapanot, who is known for always choosing original Pilipino music (OPM) for his performances, sang Yano's "Kumusta Na," much to the delight of the coaches.

"Sobra kong na-enjoy ang performance mo na 'yan. Alam mo, Rence, uulitin ko 'yung sinabi ni Coach Bamboo, napaka-authentic mo. Talagang 'yung iyong pagmamahal sa OPM ay nag-uumapaw every time na napapanood kita diyan sa stage. At iilan ka sa mga few artists sa competition na ito na talagang may magic, napaka-connected mo, napaka-totoo ng emosyon na ibinibigay mo sa stage na 'yan. I love you, kahit hindi kita kilala, I love the artist that you are," Sarah Geronimo told Rapanot.

Bamboo agreed with Geronimo, adding that he's proud of Rapanot.

"Nasabi na lahat ni Coach Sarah. Ang tanong ko lang sa'yo, nag-enjoy ka ba diyan, Rence? 'Yun lang ang gusto kong itanong sa'yo, nag-enjoy ka. Maraming, maraming salamat. Congratulations sa performance na 'yun," he said.

Rapanot got 44.88% of viewers' votes, automatically giving him a slot in the semifinals.
