MANILA -- Myk Perez scored a major upset on Sunday as he outscored early frontrunner Lee Grane in terms of viewers' votes during the first live show of the hit TV talent show "The Voice of the Philippines."

Perez's mashup of Katy Perry’s “California Girl” and Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” also became a trending topic on microblogging site Twitter.

Perez received 54.8% of the viewers votes and will continue on to the next round of competitions, along with Grane, who was saved by coach Bamboo Manalac. -- The Voice of the Philippines, August 25, 2013
