Actress-comedienne Melai Cantiveros was crowned the first-ever grand winner of top-rating celebrity musical competition “Your Face Sounds Familiar” after garnering 51.93% of public votes in the program’s grand showdown Sunday night (June 7).
Melai bested other Final 4 celebrity perfomers Nyoy Volante, Jay-R, and Edgar Allan Guzman with her impersonation of pop star Miley Cyrus. Melai brought the house down on Saturday’s (June 6) show when she came out wearing a white top and underwear while singing “Wrecking Ball,” and then swinging on a wrecking ball.
“To those who voted for me through text, thank you very much. To all Melason fans, thank you for your support and for voting for me,” said Melai, who dedicates her victory to her husband Jason Francisco and their daughter.
