Zane Du­gaduga of Tal­isay City was hailed Star of the Night in Sinulog Idol Sea­son 10’s third elim­i­na­tion round that was meant to show­case Ce­buano or Visayan folk songs.

She amazed the crowd at Plaza In­de­pen­den­cia with her ver­sion of “Ngano Kaha,” an orig­i­nal piece by for­mer “Sinulog Idol” fi­nal­ist Mariel Minglanilla.

“Li­pay kaayo ko. Wala ko mag-ex­pect nga ako ang mapil­ian sa kadaghan namo nga maayo karong gab­hi­una,” said Du­gaduga, who was joined at the Top 3 by fel­low con­tenders Jessa Abaquita and James Al­fa­fara.

Abaquita also wowed the au­di­ence as she sang her orig­i­nal piece from the 2016 Cebu Pop Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, “Uyab Ta Pero Dili Ta Magsaba.”

Al­fa­fara, for his part, re­deemed him­self after be­ing part of the Bot­tom 3 for two con­sec­u­tive nights.

En­ter­tain­ment Ed­i­tor Ryan Mark Bori­naga com­mented that he was fi­nally in the game.

“I have to say that wel­come to Sinulog Idol kay for two nights I’ve been telling you back­stage ngano man ka nga wa man kay ayo on stage. Kahibaw ko kung unsa ka nga singer. I’ve been telling you nga di pwede nga mata­gak ka,” the “Sinulog Idol” res­i­dent judge said.

Vo­cal coach Jay Unchuan like­wise quipped that Al­fa­fara’s per­for­mance was to­tally dif­fer­ent from the first two nights.

“I al­ways felt like your song choices and how you per­form are just pa-safe-safe, pa cute­cute and pabebe boy but tonight’s per­for­mance was a dif­fer­ent James and I think if you keep that up the next days, I am pretty sure that you will be safe,” Unchuan said.

But Punta Princesa’s Kyla Di­zon failed to land on the safe side, as she was the sec­ond fi­nal­ist to be cut.

“It was really my voice, that’s why I couldn’t belt out my song,” she ex­plained. “I was sick since this morn­ing and I was think­ing nga dili na unta ko mokanta pero akong gi-push kay this is a com­pe­ti­tion. I am here and I have to go for it what­ever it takes.”

Still, she feels blessed de­spite the loss.

“I learned how to al­ways have a strong heart. Though it’s very un­pre­dictable but I al­ways keep in mind that what­ever hap­pens, al­ways trust your­self,” said Di­zon.
