Paolo Ballesteros gets emotional over 'Die Beautiful' - Poster & Trailer

By With No comments:

Paolo Ballesteros got emotional as he posts the teaser for "Die Beautiful" on his Instagram account. The Jun Lana-directed independent film is his first starring role. The movie also showcases his talents in "transformations" that he has shown the world through social media.

Die Beautiful - Poster

"Can't help but feel emotional, teary-eyed (talaga o baka baha ng luha) seeing this film and Trisha come alive," he wrote in the caption of the teaser.

The 33-year-old actor and TV host first transformed in the public eye through "Eat Bulaga's" mock beauty pageants where he wowed everyone with his very feminine looks once made up as a woman. He eventually tried doing his own make-up since his transformations became frequent, and transforming into the faces of famous local and international celebrities became a forte.

"Its hard enough to be the lead in a film, much more to play such a character (blisters from hours and hours of packaging tape, packaging tape for junjun) and to do your own makeup transformations (and adjust it yourself on set infront of the camera at 3am in the morning)," he recalled the pains he went through while shooting the film.

It was a happy experience, however, for him especially that the people he worked with gave their heart and soul for they were inspired with the story that the world will soon see.

"It was always a happy set. Too happy that i was always looking forward to the next day of filming. Its because Everyone (From direk Jun to utility) gave his heart and soul to this film. Endured everything because Everyone was inspired with what a beautiful story we have to tell. To Everyone thank you (alam nyo na mga mem). We can't wait to show you our Beautiful film. World Premiere soon," he wrote.

Check out the teaser of "Die Beautiful" below.

'The Voice Kids PH 3' winner named - Joshua Oliveros is grand champion!

By With No comments:

The finals of "The Voice Kids Philippines" season 3 aired live from Resorts World Manila on Sunday, August 28, 2016, with the top three kids singing their power ballad songs for the votes of the viewers.

The Voice Kids PH 3 coaches and finalists

They already did two performances each during the Saturday night episode - duet with their coaches and upbeat numbers - and the voting lines were opened until 12 midnight. The votes they got last night will be added with the votes they will get when the voting lines are reopened tonight to determine the new grand champion of "The Voice Kids PH" season 3.

Here's a glimpse of the votes from last night:

T - 44.84%

V - 24.82%

K - 30.34%

On with the live show, it was FamiLea's Joshua Oliveros who took the stage first. A video shown before his performance revealed that he was able to meet his mother for the first time courtesy of the the show. That definitely helped in bringing out those emotions when he sang Yeng Constantino's "Salamat" which was a very heartfelt rendition.

Team Sharon's Antonetthe Tismo was the second to perform. Regine Velasquez's "Pangako" was arranged especially for the performance and it showcased the young artist's vocal range. Coach Sharon Cuneta even stood up with delight during the mid part of the performance and continued cheering for Antonetthe up until the end. The megastar's husband, Senator Kiko Pangilinan, and her daughters Frankie and Miel also gave the performance a standing ovation.

Justin Alva of Kamp Kawayan was the last to perform. He did a beautiful acoustic arrangement of Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know?" and it was very heartfelt. Coach Lea Salonga even commented that Justin will definitely have a career whatever happens in the competition. His coach Bamboo Mañalac, however, said that he may have a career waiting for him but he's still very deserving to win.

The voting lines were re-opened after the performances. Voting lasted for a few minutes, for a whole commercial break, and was closed again before guests Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla were introduced. The love team were promoting their movie "Barcelona: A Love Untold" which is showing September 14.

The grand champion of "The Voice Kids PH" season 3 will receive 1 million in cash and another 1 million in trust fund from H&M, a house and lot from Vista Land, and a recording contract, among others.

Garnering the highest number of combined text votes of 38.07%, FamiLea's Joshua Oliveros was named the grand champion of "The Voice Kids PH" season 3.

Here's the final tally of votes:

Joshua Oliveros - 38.07%

Justin Alva - 25.24%

Antonetthe Tismo - 36.69%
