Last year we had Charice Pempengco and Arnel Pineda. This year we started with Ramiele Malubay and Renaldo Lapuz of American Idol season 7.
Last week I've read about half-Filipino twin sisters who are singers in Hong Kong. They are Jill and Janice Vidal, pictured left.
Madonna Decena wows England in (quote)Britain's(unquote) Got Talent. See video below for her touching rendition of Whitney Houston's 'I will always love you'. This 33-year-old single mom is so lucky. Way to go Mado! And she met Simon Cowell and Ant and Dec all in one place! *jealous* lol
And the latest news comes from the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. Brillante Mendoza's Serbis made it to the top 19 films that will compete for the Palme d'Or. This film is about male movie house prostitutes and stars Gina Pareño and Coco Martin. It's the first Filipino film in competition since 1984's "Ora Pro Nobis" by Lino Brocka. The Film Experience Blog gives some short description of each film competing and Johnny (of Your Headphones) shares a little background on the director so go ahead and read. It sure is a great thing to be included in a tough group. Good luck Serbis!
