MANILA - A 27-year-old man from Pampanga is a step closer to his dreams as he received a ticket to "Idol City" on the pilot episode of "Idol Philippines" Sunday.
Renwick Benito performed Juan Karlos' "Buwan," receiving praises from the judges.
"Every word was enunciated well. Your tone was perfect. Lahat ng, 'yung dynamics, sobrang perfect. Pati 'yung heart, you got your message across. You did it so perfectly. Saludo po ako sa inyo, sobrang galing niyo po," Moira dela Torre told Benito.
"Actually may dating ka, ang ganda ng dating mo," Vice Ganda added.
Benito received four "yesses" from the judges and will be competing in the next round.
Hosted by Billy Crawford, "Idol Philippines" airs Saturdays after "Home Sweetie Home" and Sundays after "Wansapanataym."
