MANILA, PHILIPPINES – The current lockdown and overload of bad news have been causing sadness among most Filipinos. But since Filipinos are known to find happiness amidst any crisis, Orocan, a famous brand for bath pails and dippers, wanted to bring out that optimism by launching ‘Kubeta Got Talent’ (roughly translated as, Bathroom Got Talent) with Soupstar Music and agency GIGIL.
‘Kubeta Got Talent’ is the first singing contest to be held in every contestant’s bathroom. It is a 5-episode show, live on Facebook, with three contestants and one guest artist each day. It is hosted and judged by the vocalists of some of the Philippines’ biggest bands — Tutti Caringal of 6cyclemind, Kleggy Abaya of Banda Ni Kleggy, and Ki- ara San Luis of Imago. However, each winner is not only chosen by these three judges, but also voted by the audience during the show’s live polls.
Here’s how to join:
1. Take a video of yourself singing inside your bathroom.
Anyone can join. You may use your tabo, timba, batya, or anything inside the bathroom as props and/or instruments.
2. Submit video entry (.mp4 file) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
