Mutya sa Tagbilaran 2016 Talent Night

The Talent Competition for Mutya sa Tagbilaran 2016 was staged 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 and  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 and 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 styling and one candidate showed off her dramatic flair.

Overall, it was an electrifying night that was punctuated with the supporters’ deafening cheers and thunderous applause. 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.

The pageant chair, Tagbilaran City First Lady Jane Cajes-Yap delivered the welcome remarks and City Mayor Baba Yap was all praises and admiration for the way the city’s barangays gave their all-out support to the girls.  Fr. Val Pinlac chaired the panel of judges that included Ms. Jeycelle Inting, Mr. Kevin Lao Minoza and Mrs. Rosemarie Palma.

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 and 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 Poblacion 1.
