Shane and Jerome are back in the Academy

September 01, 2008 12:00 AM

The Little Dreamers’ 8th Gala Night served as the Academy’s venue to give the ex-Little Dreamers another chance to prove themselves deserving of a scholarship. To show their great enthusiasm towards the said opportunity, Shane, Leon, Jerome, Nikki, Dean, and Kelly prepared a short production number—a song and dance number to the beat of Grease 2’s OST entitled Back to School Again.

Once again, the expelled Little Dreamers took the stage and impressed the panel of jurors composed by Jimmy Antiporda, Wency Cornejo and Kitchy Molina. Shane went first with her rendition of Charice Pempengco’s It can Only Get Better. Despite her few flats, juror Jimmy was indeed wowed by her outstanding performance.

Leon amused the jurors, most especially Wency, with his former audition piece entitled Fallin’. The said juror commended his amazing breath flow and enunciation. Teacher Kitchy, on the other hand, couldn’t be happier upon seeing great improvement on Jerome’s facial muscles. Given that he had been out of the Academy for a long period of time, she found it quite amusing that the child still remembers his mentors’ teachings.

Probably brought by nervousness, Nikki had problems getting the right notes. The same happened to Dean, with Juror Wency noting that his constant movements to Gary V’s Hataw Na attributed to his not hitting the right notes. Kelly, on the other hand, had trouble with her modulation.

The jurors agreed that all six kids did well, but only two slots are to be filled. Luckily for Shane and Jerome, the jurors awarded them the highest scores and their scholarships back.

Next week, the talented youngsters will be doing their own rendition of our favorite band hits. Will Shane and Jerome be able to outdo their classmates? Find out next week on the Little Dreamers’ 9th Gala Night, Sunday right after Goin’ Bulilit!
