Sam Mangubat and Carl Malone Montecido are the new additions to Tawag ng Tanghalan (TNT) on It’s Showtime Grand Finalists, following their successful finish during the singing competitions Quarter 4 semifinals on Saturday.
Mangubat and Montecido clinched the 7th and 8th finals spots, respectively, after garnering the top scores from both the judges’ (hurado’s) scores and texters’ votes.
The YouTube sensation from Batangas scored 95.35% of text votes, while the blind singer from Bacolod got 78.85% votes. Froilan Canlas, despite being the judges’ choice, fell short in making it to the top 2 for registering a low number of votes. He got 72.61% from the combined texter’s and hurado’s votes.
Mangubat and Montecido will be joining previously named finalists Maricel Callo (Mindanao), Mary Gidget dela Llana (Luzon), Pauline Agupitan (Luzon), Marielle Montellano (Visayas), Noven Belleza (Visayas) and Eumee Capile (Luzon) in the upcoming grand finals.
Canlas and other semifinalists from Quarters 1 to 4 will have a chance to earn a slot in the grand finals in a wildcard round called “Ultimate Resbak” starting next week on It’s Showtime.
