  1. Hi, I just have questions and concerns regarding the semi final round. This is not to appeal or protest.

    1. It is important for any group to know their standing/rank/score. May ibang group kasing nagtatanong sa staff nyo at sabing hindi daw pwede at nasa rules daw yun.

    2. May dance group po na sumayaw na eliminated na.

    Wala lang TRANSPARENCY, I think there’s something wrong with tonight’s round. I hope you could give me answers with this feedback. Thanks

    • Hi Choi,
      Thank you for visiting my blog. First, let me clarify that this blog, Inside Marikina, is not connected in any way with the organizers of this event. Having said that, I will not be able to give you any official statement regarding your concerns.

      But personally, here is my take on it: Transparency, i think it is within their limits not to show the team standings during semi final rounds. But they should show it during the final round or after the event. Or, they can show the scores now without the names of the teams. Kagaya sa ABS-CBN shows diba?

      They can also eliminate during the semi-final rounds.
