What can you say about this franchised show in GMA 7? You are open to share you thoughts regarding the show and the contestants... I'm not a big fan but I do watch it sometimes, I like the rocker guy, Ram... he's cool... How about you?

B-O-R-I-N-G. Everything was a cheap copy. From the set design to the personality of the judges. And even the comments. Heck. I know its a franchise but it doesn't mean that you won't be putting any filipino touch to it. The contestants did not even stand out well. Such a waste of money.

Yea, also agree with what you said. Philippine Idol is far way better than of the GMA's. It was a power cast.

Well, i have never watched an episode of Pinoy Idol... it was a major turn off when channel 7 took it away from channel 5... and they did not even give a single recognition to those who participated and even won the Philippine Idol... they acted as if it never existed... aside for that... when i saw a commercial where Wyngard was wearing black and acting as if he is the carbon copy of Simon Cowell... i decided never to watch the show...

yeah, I hated it... For someone like me that idolizes Simon... He's only the one can do those such 'brutality' in a reality show...

Hay naku! It's a show I can do without, thank you. Before, I felt there was something lacking in the original PHILIPPINE IDOL. But when I caught parts of Pinoy Idol, I've learned to appreciate everything about the first search. Even their most mediocre performers were better than this batch. And the judges are complaining that the ones being voted to stay on are ho-hum guys and girls. Why did they choose them in the first place. And there are so many other more capable hosts that Raymond Gutierrez...

I am NOT A FAN also... I am leaning more towards PDA of channel 2! I am disappointed with the chosen judges and really uncomparable to those judges in PDA! I prefer the 1st Philippine Idol in ABC 5 though... because the judges were, RYAN C. FRANCIS M. and PILITA C. If ever I am watching the Pinoy Idol, I do not like their sound system also. But I like KID to win, I just want him to win thats all

I perfectly agree with you! They somehow nothing compared to the original Philippine idol. It's sad to know that they didn't acknowledge Mau Marcelo as the first Philippine Idol... it doesn't matter what is the name of the show, it's all about being the IDOL...

Boring. They are like, putting other things like jamming session and stuff, but in reality I think they are just copying the concept of PDA that teaches it's students. I love PDA more than Pinoy Idol, and Gala performance of PDA, especially in the trio is a bang! And I'm not really a fan of channel 7, because I think that the quality of their shows decreased, and it's only the never ending media hype that brings them the much seeked ratings. I like American Idol more. But then, we're here so PDA rocks for me.

They don't have any originality in their concept for the show... Everything is a copy-cat... Wish to see something more unique about PINOY IDOL...

I wanted to hurl something at the TV last night as I caught the final performance night. But then it will not be fair to the TV. That was the finals? (gasp!) I mean that was all they could give on the night they were supposed to give their all to earn the right of being proclaimed Pinoy Idol? Yuuuccckkk! I am most certainly overjoyed they refused to associate Philippine Idol with this junk of a show. Even the worst contestants of the original Idol was never as bad as the finalists. I sincerely miss Mau Marcelo and she should be proud of herself because she truly is the FIRST Philippine Idol.

Hi jeiyah_12. I'm so sorry but I hate to watch Pinoy Idol. You know why, I observed that they are being O.A. as in Over Acting. They are imitating those American Idols, and which they only making the show disastrous! Imagine...they are all trying hard to sing. I prefer to watch PDA as in Pinoy dream Academy because it shows that those scholars had their own originality and talent. So far, I am not interested who will be won on that show (Pinoy Idol), I still love Mau Marcelo the original first Pinoy Idol! Thanks for the post!Happy myLot! And aim high!
