Team Lea’s Phillipe Go and Timmy Pavino sang ‘Forevermore’ by Side A. Lea seemed to feel the song’s message and silently sang with them. Sarah said that she had felt the song. Their coach described the song as gorgeous. The other coaches liked Go more, but Coach Lea picked Pavino to stay.
Team Bamboo’s Rita Martinez and Suy Galvez sang ‘Tainted Love’ to which Bamboo has described as hot while Lea said it was appealing. The rest of the coaches thought Martinez dd better. Bamboo picked Martinez to move on to the next round while Apl De Ap had used the ability to steal Galvez because he wanted an artist with her style to be added in his team.
Team Sarah’s Daniel Ombao and Jason James Dy sang‘On Bended Knees’, a song known to swoon women off their feet. Ombao knew the Dy had more experience and seemed to have felt nervous as he had forgotten some of the lines while singing. Bamboo liked the fact that Dy used falsetto instead of raising his voice but liked Ombao more. Lea and Apl like Dy, Sarah had chosen Dy to stay in her team and had let go of Ombao.
Team Apl’s Bradley Holmes and Jason Fernandez had performed a heartfelt ‘I Won’t Do Anything for Love’, knowing the inspiration driving the rock artist.
