Philippine Actress Ciara Sotto was the crowned grand champion for the Talentadong Pinoy 2011 Celebrity Edition. The competition takes place on March 13, 2011, at the Ynares Center in Antipolo Rizal.
She wowed her judges and the audience as she sings “Wake me up inside” by an American rock band, Evanescence while also demonstrating her pole dancing skills.
She outcompetes other equally talented celebrity talentados particularly Rosanna Roces, Valeen Montenegro, and Regine Tolentino. As a result, Ciara Sotto takes home 100,000 pesos in cash.
To be honest, I found the first few minutes of her performance to be dull. However, sometimes you really can’t judge the book by its cover. Because she amazed me when she performed stunts in the pole dancing.
Check her previous performance (with background music sang by Michael Buble):
The whole talentado performance of Ciara “The Majority Pole Leader” Sotto lasts for 2 minutes and 30 seconds. But it’s worth watching as it is entertaining at the same time breathtaking. The funny part though is it seems that the judges could not believe what they saw because probably they have a different impression of the actress.
According to the multi-awarded film director Joey Reyes, he knew Ciara as a nice and sweet person. However, after seeing her performance, he seemed confused and mind-blown. He probably knows the actress since she was young and thought is not capable of doing such extreme routines.
Comedian Tuesday Vargas also looks speechless because just like the film director, she can’t find the exact words to compliment Ciara’s astonishing performance. From what she said, it seemed that Ciara is newly-wed at the time. Furthermore, the actress/comedian wants to know Ciara’s secret “para makabuo daw sila ng sabay.” Tuesday is probably referring to conceiving a baby fast. Tuesday revealed that she idolized Ciara after her performance.
Actress Ruffa Gutierez said that Ciara is very fit and really has talent in pole dancing. Furthermore, Ruffa told that if Ciara’s former boyfriends can see her now. They will probably regret that they part ways with the pole dancer.
Director / Actor Audie Gemora shared also that he loves the actress since she was young. He also knows that Ciara is a hardworking person. At the end of his comment, he said that if it is possible, he will give the actress 101 points for her pole dancing performance.
