MANILA, Philippines – Black Eyed Peas’ member apl.de.ap couldn’t have picked a more apt song for the three-way battle between Penelope Matanguihan, Moira dela Torre and Cara Manglapus as the Battle Round of “The Voice of the Philippines” continued on Sunday.

Apl chose the song “One Night Only” from the Broadway musical “Dreamgirls” for the three female contestants, which he has dubbed his “Dream Bebots,” a reference from his hit song.

The judges were divided on who won the round. Sarah Geronimo said she belives Matanguihan stood out, while Bamboo Manalac picked dela Torre for taking chances.

But the decision rests on apl, who praised all three women. “Cara, you’ve come a long way. Moira, I know you’re under the weather but you still pulled through. Penelope, you’re always focused, always on point… But today I’m going to pick Penelope,” he said.
