Actress-comedienne Melai Cantiveros was crowned the first-ever grand winner of top-rating celebrity musical competition Your Face Sounds Familiar after garnering 51.93-percent of public votes in the program’s grand showdown on June 7.
Melai bested other the rest of the Final 4 perfomers Nyoy Volante, Jay-R, and Edgar Allan Guzman with her impersonation of pop star Miley Cyrus. Melai brought the house down on the performance show the day before when she came out wearing a white top and underwear, singing “Wrecking Ball.”
“To those who voted for me through text, thank you very much. To all Melason fans, thank you for your support and for voting for me,” said Melai, who dedicates her victory to her husband Jason Francisco and their daughter.
Melai won P2 million, half of which has gone to her chosen charity, the Alay Kapwa Desk Social Action Center of the Diocese of Marbel.
