Virtual, Aug 2020 – Rocket Station announced the grand winners of the first-ever Rocketeer’s Got Talent (RGT) after dozens of online auditions from our team members across the Philippines. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and to abide by safety regulations, the competition had to be held virtually. Regarding the mechanics of the event, the performances of each finalist were uploaded to our Rocket Station careers page for social media voting by the public. Hosting the finals were our very own Joannah Consencino and Kaey Soluta, the operations, and junior operations managers respectively. Similarly, the judges for the finals were other rocketeers as well such as our well loved Director of Operations, Romil Hombrebueno.
The 5 finalists for RGT were Angio Dionisio, Elcenor Scala, Francesca Miranda, Sebastian Lozano and Veronica & Christopher John Macatangay.
All the contestants received praise from the judges for their final performances. A common comment for most of the finalists is the improvement in production quality from the contestant. Regarding the results of the contest, although it was quite a close call, only 1 talented rocketeer could win the grand prize:
In third place, with 9.77% of the total votes, were Veronica and Christopher John Macatangay with their rendition of ‘All of me’ by John Legend
Coming it at 2nd place is, Elcenor Scala. She sang the power ballad I wanna know what love is’ by Foreigner and managed to win a very impressive 34.81% of the total votes.
Finally, the very first-ever grand winner of RGT was Francesca Miranda with 42.24% of the total votes. Her mash-up of ‘Senorita’ and ‘Havana’ by Camilla Cabello wowed the judges with Romil expressing his awe at her unique voice.
Aside from bragging rights, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners were awarded 10,000, 7,000, and 5,000 Philippines pesos respectively. The other finalists that did not place in the top 3 received 2,000 Philippines pesos as consolation prizes.
This was our first-ever Rocketeer’s Got Talent and it was a great success as evident from the high engagement with the social media voting for the competition. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m glad we at Rocket Station was able to still highlight the abundant talent that can be found in our Rocket Station team
