MANILA—As the title, which suggests fleetingness, implies, those who joined "Your Moment" have very little room to make mistakes.
Its format has a "make-it-or-break-it" feel to it, as only one of the three acts from its two categories who perform in each episode will be given another opportunity to face the judges.
That will be determined purely by the combined score of the three judges: Billy Crawford, Nadine Lustre and Boy Abunda.
For the local pilot, it was Ruthless Comrades, a huge group from Rizal, who will be moving on to the next round in the dance category, while Lez 2 Men, a trio of singers, advances in theirs.
According to Abunda, Ruthless Comrades "moved like a family."
Crawford noted that he and Lustre gave them a standing ovation because of their "impeccable" formations and sequences.
Lez 2 Men, composed of Blue Siao, Akie Cedilla, and Zai Miguel, who all met by happenstance, earned praise mostly for their fantastic start to their cover of "One Night Only."
"Powerful" was the word best used to describe them, with Lustre saying that they can count her as one of their new fans.
Hosted by Luis Manzano and Vhong Navarro, "Your Moment" is billed as a 2-in-1 competition, with both singers and dancers given equal opportunity to showcase their talent. Its grand cash prize for both its winners stand at P2 million.
It airs every Saturday and Sunday, after "Home Sweetie Home: Extra Sweet" and "Wansapanataym," respectively.
