KZ Tandingan: 1st X Factor Philippines Grand Winner

In the show hosted by KC Concepcion, the show ended with a great result with great Top 3 finalists and the result proves that VIEWERS are intelligent for choosing the BEST Contestant to  be the first ever Grand X-Factor Philippines Champion.

The 21-year-old singer from Digos City bested Gabriel Maturan and the group Daddy’s Home by receiving the most number of online and text votes.
Mentored by Charice throughout the season, KZ sang Karen Carpenter’s “Superstar” during the last performance show.
As the winner, she took home P4 million worth of prize package which includes a recording contract with Star Records.
Placing second to KZ was Gabriel Maturan from Martin Nievera‘s Boys Category. He got P100,000 in cash.
Third placer was Daddy’s Home of the Groups Category mentored by Gary Valenciano. They received P50,000 in cash.
Here are the percentage of votes:
KZ Tandingan – 54.77%
Gabriel Maturan – 32.33%
Daddy’s Home – 12.90%

As a viewer, I hope that KZ will be another Yeng Constantino not Laarni Lozada, meaning, to have a successful  career and not to be outshined by the runners-up.
