He not only impressed jurors Sharon Cuneta, Gary Valenciano, and Ogie Alcasid, but also the social media, where his performance video trended and was widely shared. Briguela won P50,000, and an additional P50,000 to be given to his chosen charity, Harvesters’ Foundation, Inc.
Following him in the ranking were “Dance Sweetheart” AC Bonifacio as Britney Spears (19 points); “Big Shot Belter” Elha Nympha as Beyonce (18 points); and “Talented Cutie” Sam Shoaf as Bruno Mars (17 points).
