MANILA - Sam Mangubat kept his streak alive, notching his sixth win on "Tawag ng Tanghalan" on Friday. 

After earning an automatic spot in the semifinals, the Batangas native returned to the "It's Showtime" stage and sang Westlife's "My Love" for an average judges' score of 92.6 percent. 

It was enough to defeat challenger Pauline Lutero, who sang Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" for a score of 91.4 percent. 

Mangubat will again attempt to defend his title on Saturday, and add to his winnings of more than P130,000.
