Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 Grand Winner Must Have Shocked Jurors

Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 Grand Winner is Denise Laurel! The people have spoken, and the 28-year-old singer/actress was their choice to be the big winner of this season's competition.

The irony of it all is that, throughout the season, Denise had not won, even just once, in any of the 13 weekly competitions. There were several times, when she would almost win, but then, she would only manage to get the second place. The jurors, composed of Sharon Cuneta, Jed Madela, and Gary Valenciano, must have been shocked when the results were read.

The season's front-runners, Kean Cipriano, Sam Concepcion and KZ Tandingan, who appeared to be the judges' favorites, only got the last three spots, based on text votes, during the grand showdown. It was such a surprise when the last two remaining names vying for the top place and second runner up were Michael Pangilinan and Denise Laurel, who previously tied at the fourth slot for the Top 4 finalists.

Kean (Weeks 3, 10 and 11) and Sam (Weeks 2, 5 and 12) had both won thrice while KZ (Weeks 4 and 8) and Michael (Weeks 9 and 13) had both placed first twice during the weekly competitions. Denise, who, as we've said, had never won, eventually emerged as the grand winner! This is what we can call sweet vindication.

Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 Results

When Denise Laurel impersonated Lea Salonga on Week 5, and not all judges gave her 8 points, I was already thinking that something might be wrong with the way they are judging the contestants. But of course, Gary V, Sharon and Jed are all highly credible jurors, and their opinions and taste should not really be questioned. Besides, all 8 contestants really gave their best in all their performances.

Then, at the grand showdown, when only the viewers' votes matter, Denise Laurel's very convincing impersonation of Beyonce, showed everyone who the real winner is. Denise did Beyonce's halftime performance at the NFL Super Bowl XLVII in 2013, where she opened her number with a few lines from "Love on Top," before singing "Crazy in Love."

Denise got the highest percentage of votes with 27.51 percent of the total text votes.

The rest of the results are as follows:
  • 2nd placer - Michael Pangilinan, who impersonated Adam Levine and performed Maroon 5's "Sugar" (23.87)
  • 3rd placer - Sam Concepcion, who impersonated Justin Bieber with the songs "Boyfriend" and "Sorry" (20.57)
  • 4th placer - KZ Tandingan, who impersonated Lady Gaga with the song "Born This Way" (19.89)
  • 5th placer - Kean Cipriano, who impersonated Ricky Martin and performed "Livin' La Vida Loca" (8.16)

Denise took home a trophy and 2 million pesos, half of which, will go to her chosen charity, which is Caritas Manila. Denise is a single mom to Alejandro, and is currently engaged to PBA superstar Solomon “Sol” Mercado.

Your Face Sounds Familiar season 2 grand showdown and announcement of winners were held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater on December 12 and 13. Both events were hosted by Billy Crawford and co-hosted by last season's winner, Melai Cantiveros. The competitions' judges are Sharon Cuneta, Jed Madela, and Gary Valenciano.
