MANILA – Brace for a more fun-filled Sunday nights as GMA Network brings back to Filipino homes All-Star Videoke with twice the fun and twice the excitement. This show began on Sunday, September 3.
The grand return of the musical game show is hosted by the two of the Network’s versatile artists: multi-talented actress and TV host Solenn Heussaff and funny comedian Betong Sumaya.
Solenn revealed that because of her love for music and singing, she is more enthusiastic for the show to begin.
“Ito talaga yung first hosting gig ko sa GMA Entertainment so iba yung feeling kasi sobrang bongga yung preparations sa lahat. Nandun yung pressure but the excitement is there for me kasi I really like music and singing so dito magagawa ko talaga yun,” the Kapuso actress said.
On the other hand, Betong shared how grateful he is to finally be part of the program that has become one of the Filipino viewers’ favourite TV programs.
“Natutuwa ako kasi kami ni Solenn yung pinagkatiwalaan ng GMA dito sa napakalaking project na ito. As we all know, inaabangan talaga ito ng viewers noon, di ba? Sobra yung excitement ko kasi following the footsteps of Allan K., Jaya and Arnell Ignacio, ang laki ng shoes to fill in so I feel blessed and challenged at the same time,” he said.
The game features six celebrity contestants or Videoke stars vying to outwit one another by filling in the missing words on a song in a videoke-type of presentation.
In the event that every player correctly answered the words in each song, a pair of celebrity ‘laglagers’ will choose one player who will be out of the competition.
The two remaining contenders will proceed in the semi-final round for a chance to play in the jackpot round. The winning contestant becomes the All Star Videoke Champ! and may bring home a cash prize of up to 100,000 pesos.
A “Super Oke” prize is also up for the win if the winner decides to continuously play in the succeeding weeks.
All-Star Videoke is under the helm of esteemed director Louie Ignacio.
