1:09:00 AM

The concluded Tawag Ng Tanghalan made an interesting season because of its different singers with different range of voice and presence but of course, in every competition, there's only one victorious name will be hailed and that's Elaine Duran of Butuan City, Agusan del Norte. She was hailed as the latest grand champion of “Tawag ng Tanghalan” on “It’s Showtime” on Saturday (September 28), capping off an illustrious journey that began when she became the singing competition’s first-ever ten-time daily defending champion or “TNT record holder.”

An early fan favorite, the 20-year-old singer sealed her victory in the grand finals’ last round by performing a medley of Basil Valdez songs “Saan Ka Man Naroroon,” “Sana ay Ikaw na Nga,” and “Ngayon and Kailanman,” which she finished with a perfect whistle note. Her performance gained her the highest combined average score of 41.18% from the madlang people’s votes and judges’ scores.

She also thrilled the audience at the Caloocan Sports Complex and triggered positive reactions on social media when she performed her ethnic-pop-rock rendition of Shanti Dope’s hit song “Nadarang,” which showed off her rapping skills.

As the newest “Tawag ng Tanghalan” grand champion, Elaine won a family vacation package, custom in-ear monitors, a business franchise, a talent management contract with ABS-CBN, a recording contract under TNT Records, a brand new house and lot, and P2 million.

Elaine beat fellow grand finalists John Mark Saga, who was declared the second placer and received P500,000, and John Michael Dela Cerna, who placed third and won P300,000. The other top six grand finalists Kim Nemenzo, Shaina Mae Allaga, and Jonas OƱate were awarded with P100,000 each.
