Protégé (GMA7) Krizza Wins the Battle for the Big Break

The top 3 contenders for Protégé battled for the the big break in the finals. The first round was a duet with their mentors. The second was a solo themed the performance of their life.

Krizza's duet with Aiza was simply outstanding. Her solo rendition of a Christmas song "My Grown-Up Christmas List" made a simple melody so special.

Based on the group's performance, So Wat could have been eliminated but text votes saved them.
The Twist That Saved Lovely and Nomer The twist was to call back the 5 Protégés who were earlier eliminated. The five contenders battled for a second chance. As a result, Nomer and Lovely were called back. The next night was a double elimination night. The seven Protégés performed well that night except for So Wat. Kenneth and Lirah's performances were just average. So Wat was bombarded with negative remarks. The twist did not favor Kenneth and So Wat. They were eliminated that night; and there was no second chance for them. The twist favored Nomer and Lovely. They are now part o…
