- Regine Velasquez and Moira Dela Torre were engaged in a small argument during an episode of 'Idol Philippines'
- It was when Regine commented that the auditionee has the same voice with other singers, which Moira opposed
- Their discussion has gained various reactions from netizens
Regine Velasquez got honest when she assessed the performance of an auditionee, namely Leann Ganzon, who sang her original song and accompanied it with a guitar.
The Asia's Song Bird told Leann that her voice sounds like the other singers such as Yeng Constantino and her fellow judge, Moira Dela Torre.
"I like the song. I like how you performed it. I like your voice. My problem is, you guys have the same sound to me. You all sound the same. I know that it's current, but you sound the same. And the thing is, I know that you're making this sound. It's not something that you're born with," she said.
"We already have Moira, we have Yeng, it's the same sound," she added.
On the other hand, Moira defended the auditionee and said that she has written a lot of songs with the same sound but they changed when she recorded them in a studio.
Regine then clarified that she was talking about the voice and not the genre.
Good thing Vice Ganda was there and was able to dissolve the tension by cracking some jokes.
Moreover, their opinions garnered mixed reactions from netizens.
Some agreed to Regine's honest comment while others defended Moira's side as well as the auditionee.
"Nagets ko ung comment ni regine. To be the the idol phillipines u have to be on ur unique sound."
"Regine nailed it to the point! I totally agree with her. The song is good though."
"Na-stress tayong lahat sa "It's the same sound!" Both sides have a point, wala pong tama at mali but props to Regine for keeping it real. Kita mong naghehesitate, medyo paiyak na at ayaw niya sabihin yun dahil madadamay ang walang muwang at mabait na si Moira. Pwede namang mag-stop na lang siya sa generic praise na naunang binigay niya sa contestant to play safe, not attract controversy and risk them bashers but nagpapakatotoo lang siya. Dun tayo sa totoo. Love all the judges!!!"
"Mejo feel ko napahiya konti si Moira kay Ms. Regine"
In a previous report by KAMI, Regine Velasquez got honest about her realizations after reacting to Sec. Teddy Locsin's tweet.
Regine tied the knot with Ogie Alcasid in December 2010. Her husband transferred from GMA-7 to the Kapamilya network just two years ago.
