Qualifiers Edit

  • Many songs that originally passed the auditions were disqualified to ensure an artist had only one entry (however, if the artist was with or featuring, it was accepted, as the other singer would then have to forcefully quit if disqualified.) However, an exception was made for Jona whom the producers stated "had three songs with high potential."
  • Ylona Garcia, Bailey May, Krystal Brimner and Andrea Brillantes were disqualified after their ages appeared to be both respectively 14, under 16 and 13 years old. For their inconvenience, they were given guaranteed spots in the final duel show of the junior version.
  • Michael Pangilinan was disqualified after his song appeared to be a cover of Juris' entry
