Vivoree Esclito showcased her singing and dancing talents, as she transformed into pop superstar Sarah Geronimo in the pilot episode of the new season of “Your Face Sounds Familiar” that aired Saturday, Feb. 20.
The Boholana rising star was assigned to perform Geronimo’s juggernaut hit “Tala,” in a bid to impress judges Gary Valenciano, Ogie Alcasid, and Sharon Cuneta.
For her actual performance, Esclito, 20, wore the same costume Geronimo had on during the memorable “Grand Tala Day” in January 2020.
Vocal coach Jed Madela, meanwhile, gave Esclito tips on Geronimo’s vocal stylings, such as her “hikbi,” or sharp breathing in some performances.
