Emmie Joaquin      Thank you for the music

It was a fabulous night! And true to what we envisioned it to be, the Pinoy Pop Star Grand Finals on March 23rd on the Main Stage of McPhillips Station Casino was more than just a contest; it was a great concert showcasing some of the best of our Filipino-Canadian performers in Winnipeg.

Congratulations to our Grand Champion, Grace Ann Panganiban. She took to the stage like a pro and mesmerized all of us who were watching her. Singing the song from Dream Girls, Love You I Do, Grace undoubtedly owned the song. She was a delight to watch as she conquered the audience and the main stage during her vibrant performance.

We also wish to congratulate our first runner-up Daisy Crisostomo and Second runner-up Aiza Luna for the exceptionally wonderful renditions of their songs. Kudos to all the 14 finalists. They showed that they were not only great vocalists but also total performers who really captured the attention of their audience.

From the time we announced the 14 finalists on February 24th, they all had a chance to see and work with each other through workshops and rehearsals that we asked them to attend. We, the Pilipino Express, are very happy to see how they all bonded and eventually became good friends. When the names of the major winners were announced at the finalé of the Grand Finals, any one could see that the sense of sportsmanship and camaraderie among them was strong and the other 11 finalists showed how happy they were for the winners.
