Netizens debate Mitoy's win on 'Voice PH'
MANILA -- Netizens seemed to be divided about Mitoy Yonting's win against Klarisse de Guzman on "The Voice of the Philippines."
ABS-CBN's hit TV talent competition had its grand finale last Sunday night, with Yonting and De Guzman emerging as the top two artists based on text and online votes, as well as music downloads.
The more experienced Yonting, who was coached by Lea Salonga, emerged on top, becoming the first-ever winner of the contest.
A day after the finale, "TV Patrol" asked the question “Ano ang masasabi mo sa panalo ni Mitoy sa 'The Voice PH'?”
Netizens on Facebook shared their comments on his win.
According to Carlson Rauland Jolou, “At the very begining siya na talaga yung bet ko na maging first ever THE VOICE of the PHILIPPINES.”
Jherome B. Baunsit agreed. “Karapatdapat lang namang tanghaling Grand Winner ng The Voice of the Philippines si Mitoy. Bihira kasi sa mga lalaki yung range ng kanyang boses & Mitoy was more on an entertainer than a contestant. He simply owned the stage last night. Yung number niya with Coach Leah and Vice made the difference with the rest,” he said.
Arceli Lazaro commended Mitoy for his singing skills, saying, “Ibang klase ang timbre ng boses ni mitoy at talagang magaling. Magaling din si klarisse pero ang dami ng ganun. She deserves to shine too at si janice magaling din.”
But Imee Delos Santos thought that Klarisse deserves to win the contest. “Si Klarisse mas deserving, for me. Fresh talent and mas maganda ang quality ng singing voice. Si Mitoy puro sigaw at pa kwela. Hindi kaaya aya pakinggan. Sorry,” she said.
Andy Bajas also pointed out that Mitoy’s voice is just strong. He said, “Si mitoy hindi naman magaling yan eh, malakas ang boses nya at maliit pa. Dinadaan lang sa lakas ng boses! Mas magagaling pa yung kasama niya kaysa sa kanya.”
On Twitter, three people agreed that Mitoy deserves to win, whereas two of them were on Klarisse’s side.
Simon Lorilla (@SeekGoodLife) said “Mitoy is so resilient and yet unpretentious knowing he's competing to much younger singers. Very admirable.”
~itsMeNIKE ~ (@DanicaJoyceAvi1) commended Mitoy’s voice, saying, “Mitoy's voice was amazing!! Yung feeling na pag naririnig mo yung kanta niya ‘exciting.’”
Charize Mondido (@iamcharizeM) said Mitoy is deserving to be the winner of the competition. “I knew Mitoy would be the winner. It was a close battle against Klarisse, but Mitoy has a more distinct voice. Nice!” she said.
Chingkee M Villasenor (@ChingkeeV) was on team Klarisse saying, “Mitoy can reach the highest of notes but Klarisse' voice is soothing to the soul. She sings with the right emotion.”
Francis Rafael Ileto (@FRAANZone) shared the same sentiment, saying, “I think Klarisse should've won the competition, she's more deserving for the title. But I have nothing against Mitoy.”
