First off, the main idea for this activity is for a class to unite and come up with something they can always remember as a class. With all my classes, i think we have achieved just that and for that alone, they all deserve an applause.
For Earth. Being this year's champion was always the goal, no more sharing of winnings, no more second thoughts, no more doubts if they will get it or not, it was simply theirs from the beginning and THEY.DID.JUST.THAT! I don't think I can ever claim any credit for it, they did everything on their own with little or no suggestion from me. I don't think they also need motivation (and I don't think the money did anything, too! It was just my way of saying, I always believed in them, even from the start!) since they were already HIGHLY motivated even from the start... So this victory is entirely theirs! Ahm, if I am allowed to say, if there's anything I did, i made them wary of Mars since I've always mentioned that Mars has an advantage and that their voice is thicker than Earth. But what surprised me during Finals, yes, you can hear female voices but with the unison, there's only one thing you can think of, they DID PRACTICE A LOT!!! So Earth, CONGRATULATIONS almost means nothing at this point since the 'winning moment' is almost over but what I would like you to remember and cherish is the experience that brought upon the victory. Please do not forget the moments you shared as a class, the times when you come up with a single idea, when you felt your bond become stronger. It is not about the winning or losing, it is about the experience. Remember also all the people who helped you achieve this and make sure to just utter a small thank you.
To Mars. It was not a simple task to begin with yet with all your efforts, you did achieve something as a class and it was beyond my expectation. It might not be the first prize you are aiming for, still I hope you are satisfied with the results. At first, I was more clinging towards your class since I thought you had an advantage over Earth, the thicker voices from the males. But let us face the fact that the other class prepared really well for this one and so did you, siguro talagang ayaw lang nila ng ka-tie. In the same manner, you also did not want to share the award with anyone so you clearly got the 2nd place this time. Still, I am proud of your effort. I don't think I helped in anyway yet I hope you will continue doing better in my class... Again, Mars, well done! Also, i think your costume is the best among all participants!
To Rizal. This is the heart-breaker. Before I decided to go home last Friday, I am still not convinced that they placed lower than 3rd so I had to look for the scoresheets from the judges and realized that they are 4th overall. The thing is, there is only 1 point difference between them and the 3rd placer and I still cannot accept that. Why, because of the costume?!? the concept?!? Haaaysss... Rizal was fuller in voice and performance and so what's with the costume when you cannot even hear their lyrics or songs?!? Sorry if I am being biased but Rizal was able to silence the crowd and made them listen to their performance most of the time they were performing. Can the same be claimed by the other group?!? My apologies to the judge/s who thought differently but my true 3rd placer is this class, because inspite and despite of the odds, this class performed better than expected. They may have been through rough patches yet, they were able to work together as a class with minimal supervision and that alone is an achievement. So, Rizal, raise your heads, straighten your backs and stand proud of what you have achieved as a class. I never asked for a winning, i just asked that you give them a good fight and that you deliver. From the moment the judges had to call for a tie between you and Mars during elimination, I knew you had a spot in the Finals. It just saddened me that it was 'stolen' from you during Finals. I wish I could say there's a next time but let this be a reminder of the best moments of your class. Again, it is not about the winning or losing, it is about the experience you gain. On that note, with everyone performing, i think you deserve higher than the 3rd place!
To Sun and Moon. I know you all did your best but what i can offer you right now is the fact that you can try again next year. The only hurdle you have to face is, since it was proven by Earth and Mars that there's no need to collaborate among classes, you each have to stand on your own. Meaning, you all have to develop thicker voices to prepare for the competition next year! And yeah, next time, i think you have greater chances... Let's all look forward to next year!
is another success yet also a heart-breaker...
