Like what I previously wrote—I was torn between two artists from Cebu, who were paired for the Battle Round under #TeamLea, aired on Sunday, December 14 on ABS-CBN Channel 2.
Both Jem Cubil and Thara Jordana was a perfect match to sing the song titled ‘No Air’, which was originally sang and popularized by American recording artist Jordin Sparks; featuring American R&B singer-actor Chris Brown.
Based on the music video of the song, it was pretty clear that Sparks was really the ‘star’ and Brown was a support. Though the song was originally written for a male singer, but Harvey Mason Jr. (one of the songwriters) agreed to eventually award the song to Sparks, provided the duet an ‘event duet record’, and suggested Brown as a singing partner.
In Sunday’s Battle Round, Thara was struggling to take control with her duet with the charming male singer Jem, which made her to be less favored by coaches Bamboo and Apl; it was only Sarah who chose the female singer.
Cubil stood out in the duet and made the song like his own. The biggest thing was when he won the battle and he is moving on to the next round of the singing competition.
