MANILA -- "Ang Probinsyano" child star Awra Briguela was named the grand winner of the first kiddie edition of "Your Face Sounds Familiar" during the show's live grand finals Sunday at Resorts World Manila.

Briguela received a whopping 95.41 percent of votes for his final performance as Nicki Minaj. He took home a trophy, a medal, a house and lot, P1 million and a trip for four to Jeju, South Korea.

"Talaga namang tinotoo mo na itinodo mo talaga. Lahat kayo magaling pero ang daming naloloka sa 'yo," Sharon Cuneta told Briguela.

"Wala na akong masabi, nasabi na nilang lahat. Naipakita na nilang lahat kung ano 'yung pagmahahal, kung gaano kalalim ang pagmamahal nila sa 'yo," Gary Valenciano added.

This is only Briguela's second win in the show after he was named the show's first weekly winner for his performance as Dionesia Pacquiao. 

But it couldn't have come at a better time for Briguela, who has been a consistent audience favorite.

Meanwhile, Elha Nympha came in second with 70.75 percent of total scores after she left the judges in awe as she performed as Luciano Pavarotti on Saturday. 

Nympha performed "La donna è mobile" as the legendary tenor, which had the crowd at Resorts World Manila on their feet. 

"Tonight nakakuha ka ng isang standing ovation," said Gary Valenciano. "Pinatunayan mo talaga na kahit sino at ano ang ipagawa sa iyo, gagawin mo ng husto at napakagaling. Para sa akin, to be in the grand showdown, you're already a champion to some extent." 

AC Bonifacio came in third place with 57.95 percent of total scores. She performed "Kilometro" as Sarah Geronimo
