Standard’s Choice: Who should win ‘Pinoy Boyband Superstar’?

How to form a boyband? First, it has to have members and they must be diverse in terms of looks, personality and talent. Not everyone should fit the same mold, otherwise you’re not forming a boyband anymore.

But the members must have something in common, they must know how to dance and hit some decent notes. All members don’t need to be power belters or vocally gifted since you’re not forming a chorale group.  Remember, the strength of the group lies on how each member complements each other. 

 Each week, one contestant is eliminated in the talent reality search that aims to form a five-piece sing and dance group otherwise known as boyband.

Members of the soon five-piece group are expected to immediately hit the concert stage and performance venues as the winners will win a talent management contract from Star Magic, a recording contract from Star Music and a total cash prize of P5,000,000. 

In this week’s Standard’s Choice, we are listing down the strongest contestants that we believe are fit to be part of the boy group that Pinoy Boyband Superstar wants to form.  Given that they already have what it takes to be music artists, our choice is based on everyone’s idea on what a boyband should look like.

Tony Labrusca

The showbiz scion has the model look that registers well on the boob tube. He’s the strong silent type that can be the group’s lead. Tony’s got mysterious smile that makes everyone guessing what actually goes inside his head. 

Niel Murillo

In a boyband, there’s always this member who has a large following. And Neil has it. He has the biggest fan base among the contestants in the reality talent competition. YouTube will tell you how popular this innocent looking lad is among fans. 

Tristan Ramirez

He is not the best looking in this bunch, but he’s got this magnetic charm that makes all the girls swoon. Also the tallest contestant in the competition, Tristan athletic built appeals to a different market, exactly what the other contestants lack.

Joao Constancia

He is the weakest link in the vocal department but he has the most striking stage presence. Besides, a boyband doesn’t need five frontmen. Joao is a girl magnet, the real ladies’ man in the entire competition. He just needs to maintain he’s being flat out good looking and he’s perfectly fine.  

Russel Reyes

He’s got the best set of vocal pipes among the remaining contestants in the show. His vocal ability is best used when the band is performing difficult to reach high notes. He’s going to be the Bryan Littrell, Jeff Timmons or the Zayn Malik of this boyband.
