MANILA -- Comedian Eric Nicolas was crowned the first weekly winner on the second season of "Your Face Sounds Familiar" with his performance as Willie Revillame on Sunday.

Nicolas took home P100,000, half of which he will donate to his chosen charity, Child Haus Foundation.

Nicolas, who was discovered by Revillame himself, wowed the jury and the audience with his performance of "Ikaw Na Nga."

"Everybody did very well. Sobrang galing niyong lahat, but this is the exclamation point of this weekend. Lahat lahat, Willieng-Willie. 'Yung kamay sa bulsa, 'yung ganun ng damit, pati 'yung pagturo, pati 'yung daliri. Pati 'yung tawa, pati the way na pagsasalita ni Willie. Sobrang nag-enjoy kaming lahat," Jed Madela told Nicolas.

Sharon Cuneta, on the other hand, expressed her joy of seeing Nicolas on stage.

"Alam mo Eric, noong nalaman ko noong isang araw lang na kasama ka sa walo, sa totoo lang tagos sa puso ko 'yung kaligayahan ko. Ang sabi ko sa staff natin, ang sabi ko sa producers, I'm so happy na naglevel up siya kasi he deserves it. Talagang ngayon, with all due respect to Willie, kuhang-kuha ng performance mo, kuhang-kuha mo ang mannerisms niya, ang nuances niya, pati boses niya. Napapatawa mo kaming lahat... Ikaw talaga ang nangingibabaw sa akin ngayon," she added.

"Alam ko kung anong pinagdaanan ni Willie. Ganun din, 'yung tipong, 'Ay walang pera eh.' Ganyan. Mayroon akong sinulat dito, one word lang, because the word I have here is 'finally.' Sa wakas, ito na. Makikita ng mga tao kung ano ang nasa puso, at kung ano ang nasa isip ni Eric Nicolas. I think we might just have another success story," Gary Valenciano told Nicolas.
