In our interview, she said, she’s aware of the controversy. All she did was to be calm and composed and show her worth. “I can’t back out simply because of the controversy,” she said. “What I knew was that I did my all and the rest was history, so to speak.”
Jae is now among the nine to slug it out in the final night of the contest on June 2 at the Big Dome.
Who won’t be interested in the Pl-million prize in cash, a house and lot from Avida Land Corporation, one year recording contract with GMA Records, an Informatics scholarship, plus P50,000 worth of wardrobe from Pepe Herrera and Edwin Tan?
The nine finalists also did an album that includes some of the best songs they rendered in the past episodes and is now out for public consumption.
Titled “Pinoy Pop Superstar Year 3,” the finalists’ album is a 17-track with an inspiring original song by Gloria Estefan, “Reach” in a harmoniously blended pop rendition.
Aside from Jae of San Francisco, the other eight who did good performances (although, not all have good looks) are Joyce Tanana (Pampanga), Marvin Gagarin (Nueva Ecija), Jennie Escalada (Noavotas), Maricris Garcia (Caloocan City), April delos Santos (Pampanga), Miguel Naranjilla (Malabon City), Bryan Temulo (Bulacan), and Louie Abaigar (Olongapo City).
