Reiven Umali of Carmona, Cavite was hailed the latest grand champion of the longest-running singing competition in the country “Tawag ng Tanghalan” on “It’s Showtime” on Saturday (September 18).

 

The 18-year-old singer and kumu streamer earned a total average score of 93% from the combined hurado scores from judges Louie Ocampo, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Karylle, Erik Santos, Jed Madela, Nyoy Volante, and Klarisse de Guzman and the public votes. He beat Adrian Manibale with 55.7% and Anthony Castillo with 52%.

Meanwhile, Adrian got P200,000 and Anthony won P100,000.

 

In the first round of the 'Huling Tapatan,' 'Go for Gold,' Reiven received a standing ovation from the judges after he sang a heartfelt rendition of Radio Head's "The Creep."

 


Psalm Manalo, Gem Christian, Froilan Cedilla, Lorraine Galvez, and Aixia Mallary were eliminated after their pangmalakasang performances’s combined scores did not make the cut.

 

The newest "TNT" grand champion eventually won the hearts of madlang pipol and judges by performing a medley of Moira Dela Torre songs that included "Paubaya," "Malaya," and "Tagpuan."
