An early favorite, Marcelito outshone the other 13 finalists during the Grand Finals of the popular weekend show, which was held last Satuday night at the Araneta Coliseum, by performing a flawless rendition of Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli's duet of "The Prayer", singing both the female and male parts distinctly. After an overnight online and text voting, Marcelito earned more than 19 percent of the total votes which was enough to win the competition. Happy Feet, the tap dancing duo from Bukidnon, and Freestylers, a dance crew from Laguna came in second and third, respectively.

1. Marcelito Po Moy – 19.36%
