Here’s a video of Ramirr Grepo, a contestant from Baguio who made the top 12 [male group] in last year’s Philippine Idol competition. He was well praised in this performance but he didn’t have enough votes to send him to the next round.
It is likely that everyone assumed he will move further in the competition and so voted for other contestants who were perceived to be in danger of being cut. If we’re not mistaken, Ramirr is an Igorot-Caviteño mestizo.
