MANILA - After introducing himself and drawing shrieks with his sleek dance moves, Joao Constancia, a 19-year-old Filipino born and raised in Macau, performed a cover of the fan-favorite wedding staple, "Grow Old With You." 

Praising him on his audition, comedian Vice Ganda, one of the judges of "Pinoy Boyband Superstar," said: "You've got everything to make it in this competition." 

Korean pop star Sandara Park added: "I like your confidence and you're very charming. Sa singing, tuturuan ka ni teacher Yeng [Constantino] so no problem tayo diyan. And I'm sure magkakaroon ka ng maraming maraming fans."

Constancia eventually received the four nods needed from the judges, including one from actor Aga Muhlach. He, along with fellow hopefuls Gabriel Umali and Wilbert Rosalyn, are the newest contestants of the talent search to make it past the first round. 

Hosted by Billy Crawford, "Pinoy Boyband Superstar" airs Saturdays after "Home Sweetie Home" and on Sundays after "Goin' Bulilit."
