Magdangal was tasked to impersonate Filipino champ Manny Pacquiao and chose to perform the boxer’s original song, “Para Sa ‘Yo Ang Laban Na ‘To,” which received a standing ovation from the judges.

“Wala kaming makitang Jolina ngayon eh. Grabe, sobrang nakakapangilabot ‘yung transformation mo,” Jed Madela said.

Sharon Cuneta also praised Magdangal for her “flawless” performance. “Wala akong masabi. Ang galing, ang hirap, pero kuhang-kuha mo,” she said.

Boy Abunda, who was sitting in for Gary Valenciano, admitted that he was impressed with Magdangal’s transformation.

“The performance, I think, was stunning. With that performance, without having to exaggerate the way I feel, I am so proud to be in the business of show,” Abunda said.

For her efforts, she won P100,000. She will donate half of her prize to her chosen charity, Kythe Foundation.

This is Magdangal’s second win in the hit celebrity competition. Her first weekly victory was for her impersonation of Cher.

Marvin and Jolina will be part of “Flordeliza,” which will be replacing the daytime drama “Be Careful With My Heart.”

Jolina reported to her first taping day for the upcoming show on Monday, according to a report aired on ABS-CBN’s news program “TV Patrol.”

“I’m so happy. Kakaibang feeling,” the actress said in the TV interview. “Hanggang ngayon, parang di pa rin ako makapaniwala.”

“Flordeliza” will be directed by Wenn Deramas.

“Lahat nung mga di ko nagagawa dati, parang ipagagawa sa akin ni direk dito,” Jolina said.

A number of fans and netizens speculated last month that Jolina may be making a comeback to ABS-CBN. This is after Jolina, with husband Mark Escueta, attended the Star Magic Ball in September.

The project marks Jolina’s first project with ABS-CBN in more than 10 years.

The actress, who started her showbiz career in the Kapamilya network, transferred to GMA-7 in 2002.

“Flordeliza” will also be Marvin and Jolina’s first project together after being a popular TV and movie love team during the late 90s until the early 2000s.

The two headlined a number of projects together such as the movie “Hey Babe” and the TV show “Labs Ko si Babe” in 1999.

Marvin and Jolina did the daily series “I LUV NY (I Love New York)” with Mark Herras and Jennylyn Mercado in 2006 and “Iglot” in 2011 on GMA-7.

Ogie Alcasid Turns Sexy Mama on GMA-7′s ‘My Daddy Dearest’!

Beginning June 11, GMA Network presents viewers the spell-binding and hilarious yet heart-warming story of Bong and his daughter Daisy in the new family romantic-comedy series My Daddy Dearest.

Be careful what you wish for — it might just come true!

Multi-awarded singer-songwriter-actor Mr. Ogie Alcasid plays the role of Bong, son of a rich man who grew up without the guidance and care of his mother.

In the story, Bong – just like his father – is a smooth “lady-killer” who lives the good life until he meets and falls in love with Rose, a simple, loving woman who has a unique gift for growing and tending plants. Their love continues to blossom with the birth of a beautiful daughter named Daisy.

But unfortunately, fate has other plans for Bong and his family. Rose dies in a tragic accident during Daisy’s first birthday. As a result, Bong goes back to his old playboy ways, obliviously leaving his daughter to fend for herself. He is unaware of the daily torments that Daisy goes through in the hands of her Lola Mercedes, her Tita Daphne, and cousin Lily — who all want nothing more than to possess all of Bong’s inheritance including the family company.

Despite the luxury being provided to her, Daisy feels lonely because of the absence of her father. Often, she finds refuge in her beloved mother’s garden, which, unknown to her, is occupied by a small magical pixie named Winnie. Knowing Daisy’s pain, Winnie decides to help her by granting her one wish: for Daisy’s dad to become a mom instead!

Bong’s life turns upside down as he transforms from a Macho-Papa to a Sexy-Mama! Meanwhile, Mercedes and her kin of spoiled socialites cease the opportunity and use Bong’s identity crisis as an excuse to take over the family company.

Will Daisy be able to undo her wish? Will Bong be able to regain his true form before time runs out? And will the evil Mercedes and her kin succeed in taking all the family riches?


Joining Ogie in this enchanting series are Jolina Magdangal as Rose/Camilla, Pinky Amador as Mercedes, Sherylin Reyes as Daphne, Pauleen Luna as Winnie, Annie, Minnie and Ada, JC Tiuseco as CJ, Ehra Madrigral as Ivy, Mike ‘Pekto’ Nacua as Marco, Kyle Ocampo as Lily, and Milkcah Wynne Nacion as Daisy.
Under the helm of director Don Michael Perez, GMA Network’s new family drama series My Daddy Dearest will air weekdays beginning June 11 before 24 Oras on GMA-7.
