The third season of the musical-reality competition “Lip Sync Battle Philippines” starts tomorrow on GMA Network. It will have as host Michael V. together with Iya Villania-Arellano as commentator.
The pilot episode has “Kambal , Karibal” stars Bianca Umali and Miguel Tanfelix as rivals, and Jeric Gonzales and Kyline Alcantara as lip-sync partners.
Michael V. is excited to present the changes that will happen in this season. “Excited ako kasi sinala talaga namin ’yung mga battlers ngayon and magkakaroon ng bagong battles. So ang masasabi ko talaga, mas aabangan ito kasi ’yung mga napiling battler, ready talaga sila,” he said.
On the other hand, Iya expressed her gratitude to be working with Michael V. again because she likes his warm personality.
“He is very approachable and friendly and lahat ng galaw ko sa set, he is there to help and assist me so hindi talaga ako nahihirapan,” she said.
The game pits celebrities or personalities against each other in a lip sync battle for two rounds. Making the third season more special are new things to look forward to such as the three-way battle and thematic episodes that will pave the way to a more intense head-to-head challenge of your favorite celebrities and personalities.

We’ve known Danny Velasco as a committed businessman but unfortunate events overtook him the past several years that had him closing his Plaza Fair Department Store in Carriedo.
But during a visit to Manila Bulletin last week, having recovered from his personal trials and tragedies, Danny expressed his ardent desire to open up within the year his store in Carriedo as well as its branches in Cebu, Bacolod and Pampanga. He is also now more passionate in his dream to produce a movie. In the past, he had wanted to do a movie about Gabriela Silang.
Danny has opened a store named Merry Season at the Xentro Mall in San Andres, Malate. They offer household wares and elegant dresses imported from Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Tomorrow, an Easter Sunday event will be held at Xentro Mall. Aside from the traditional Easter Egg Hunt, there will be a parade and costume contest. Danny will donate some raffle prizes.
