Regional contenders from Metro Manila, Luzon, Visay as, and Mindanao compete daily on a live performance and are scored by a panel of judges. What makes this singing competition different from the western singing competitions is the use of a gong in the show. If the contestant loses his grip in anyone of the four criteria’s, the gong is struck three times to announce his exit. Like all game shows, this particular singing show already has a defending champion with an amazing voice. The winner of the shows can either challenge the defending champion or move on winning by moving to hall of fame. At times, its nerve wrecking as well as some contestants with beautiful voices and expression lose their seat, reason being their low profile in one of the criteria. Among the champion of each series, a grand champion finale will emerge and in this process, old contenders can come and participate as well and reclaim their honor.
