Mutya sa Tagbilaran 2016 Talent Night

Mutya sa Tagbilaran 2016 staged its Talent Competition last Friday at the Bohol Cultural Center. The fast- paced two hour show was not only a showcase of the girls’ talents in the creative & performing arts but  also a preview on how the girls would register onstage on pageant finals.

The girls’ chit chat with the event hosts Christine Ann T. Juguan and Darlene B. Galao right before their individual talent presentations also gave the audience a hint of the girls’ communication skills and personality projection.

Eleven of the girls presented a variety of stylized dance numbers that ranged from folk & traditional to dance sports and the interpretative kind. Their dance presentations were spiced up with a little acting, monologue and most had partners or back up dancers. Three of the girls opted to showcase their vocal stylings and one candidate showed off her dramatic flair.

For the 15 candidates, the admiration from adoring fans and the chance to share with the audience their art were all worth the endless rehearsals, the sleepless nights and the pressure to deliver.

Based on the criteria that focused on performance & showmanship with the degree of difficulty factored in, Your Roving Eye believes that the top scorers during the Talent Performance would have to be # 1 Tiptip who gave a dazzling song number, # 5 Bool who performed a couple of folk dances & played the kulintang, # 6 Mansasa with her very fluid dance moves, #10 Manga with her interpretative dance # 15 with her show- stopping number. 

For entertainment value, # 2 Pob II, # 7 Cogon, # 12 Cabawan  were tops and for relevance, # 3 Dampas,  # 8 Pob III & # 13 Taloto. The rest did quite well also like # 4 Dao, # 9 Booy, # 11 San Isidro & # 14 Pob I
