He is a very versatile actor specially in terms of comedy. He always makes us laugh. He is perfect in impersonating Antoinetta, the nemesis of all the kontrabidas in telenovelas. He is also a great host in most of the events we attended. But this time, he will unveil his other side, his hidden talent - his skills in singing!

Are you ready for Beting's first ever concert?!

Betong Sumaya was originally an executive producer for various GMA News TV shows. We first saw him in front of the cameras in 2011 when  he joined and won Survivor Philippines: Celebrity Doubles Showdown.

Since then, Betong has become a popular host and actor and is considered one of the country's best comedians.

Betong is currently part of the country's longest-running gag show Bubble Gang and he also stars as Asi in the primetime drama series "The Gift."

Aside from hosting and acting, Betong is also a talented stage performer. He started singing when he was just 4 years old and then he joined competitions. While still in school, he also joined various school programs and theater groups.

In celebration of his upcoming birthday on November 21, Betong is holding his first ever concert dubbed as Betong's Amazing Concert: Try Ko Lang Ha? - to be held at the Music Museum.

When asked about how he feels about his first ever concert, Betong said: "I feel excited and nervous at the same time. It's always been my dream to hold a concert. It took me two years to think and prepare for this one."

Watch our live video coverage during his blogcon below:

What can we expect from this concert? Betong shared: "I'll be showing off an all-new Betong who is not just a comedian but also a performer. But as the title of my concert suggests - 'Try ko lang ha?,"

And another cool interview about the walkout issue:

Betong will have special guests at his concert, including fellow GMA stars Dingdong Dantes, Michael V., Alden Richards, Miguel Tanfelix, Jeric Gonzales, Aicelle Santos, Maricris Garcia, Maey Bautista, and Chariz Solomon.

During my exclusive vlog with him, Betong revealed some of the Kapamilya actresses he wants to work with in the future. And here they are:

Presented by GMA Artist Center and Michael Angelo Productions, Betong's Amazing Concert: Try Ko Lang Ha? is directed by Juan Paulo Infante and under the music direction of Jojo Diamse.

Tickets are priced at P2,900 for VVIP, P2,300 for VIP, P1,500 for Orchestra and P900 for Balcony. For ticket purchases and inquiries, you may contact TicketWorld at 8891-9999 or visit

Eilish to Deliver First Ever Awards Show Performance and Lizzo to Hit the American Music Awards Stage for the Very First Time

Dick Clark Productions and ABC announced today that Camila Cabello, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa and Lizzo will each take the stage to perform at the “2019 American Music Awards.” Multi-platinum singer/songwriter, four-time American Music Award winner and 2019 nominee Camila Cabello will once again grace the stage after giving an unforgettable performance last year, while breakout artist and six-time American Music Award nominee Billie Eilish will take the stage for her very first awards show performance. Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Dua Lipa also returns to the American Music Awards stage after delivering one of the most talked-about performances last year and chart-topping superstar Lizzo, who received three nominations this year, will bring her unstoppable energy to the American Music Awards stage for the very first time.

Cabello, Eilish, Lipa and Lizzo join previously announced performers Selena Gomez, as well as Taylor Swift, the “2019 American Music Awards” Artist of the Decade award recipient. The “2019 American Music Awards” will broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, Nov 25 at 8:00am (GMT+8) on Blue Ant Entertainment. 

The American Music Awards is where the world’s biggest artists and pop culture icons come together to honor idols, newcomers and record-breakers in the contemporary music scene.  As the decade comes to a close, this year’s show celebrates the past ten years with some of the best moments in music and live performances from the biggest names in the industry. From Pop and Rock, to Country, Hip Hop and beyond, it only happens here.
Four-time American Music Award winner Camila Cabello is currently enjoying her lucky 13th hit on Billboard’s Pop Songs airplay chart with “Liar,” after previously topping the chart earlier in 2019 with her fourth No. 1, “Señorita,” with Shawn Mendes. “Señorita” also marked the second No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for Cabello, following her smash single “Havana” in 2018. That single climbed to No. 1 the very same week Cabello’s debut album, Camila, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. So far, Cabello’s catalog of songs have accumulated over three billion U.S. on-demand streams, according to Nielsen Music, while her Camila album has earned 1.7 million equivalent album units.

 It was a big year on the charts for six-time 2019 American Music Award nominee Billie Eilish. The 17-year old singer, songwriter and musician debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with her album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?. She scored her first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 with “bad guy,” which has since amassed more than 3 billion global audio streams alone, and reached No. 1 at Top 40 radio. WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? is now the highest selling debut album of 2019 and biggest North American debut of the decade (male, female or group), shifting 313,000 units in the first week and has already hit NUMBER 1 in the Billboard 200 album charts for an additional 2 nonconsecutive weeks since its release, earning Billie more than 17 billion combined streams worldwide to date. Billie's 2020 WHERE DO WE GO? World Arena Tour sold out within an hour of on-sale and starts March 9, 2020. WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? has collected more than 3 billion audio streams for its songs in the U.S. alone. Billie Eilish is also the third woman in history to score multiple No. 1s in the Alternative Songs airplay chart. 

Serving up a divine slice of pulsing disco, Dua Lipa is back with “Don’t Start Now.” The track is a pure adrenaline fuelled, feel good dance floor anthem of positivity and self-empowerment that announces a new era of the global pop star. Dua arrived in style in 2015 with her self-titled, chart topping debut album which eclipsed four million sales worldwide with single sales reaching over 40 million. Dua Lipa is also officially the most streamed album by a female artist in Spotify history. The video for her breakout global #1 hit “New Rules” made her the youngest female solo artist to reach one billion views on YouTube, and the track became the first to spend a record 45 weeks on the Billboard Pop Songs Chart. Dua made BRIT Award history in 2018 by becoming the first female artist to pick up five nominations, with two wins for British Breakthrough Act and British Female Solo Artist, all while selling out tours around the world. In early 2019, she received two Grammy awards for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording. Her newest single “Don’t Start Now” debuted at No. 1 on the worldwide iTunes Chart and was the No. 1 trending video on YouTube upon its release. Welcome to the next era. 

Current three-time American Music Award nominee Lizzo had a remarkable breakthrough year in 2019. She saw her first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, “Truth Hurts,” sail all the way to No. 1 and dominate for seven weeks, tying for the longest reign ever for a rap song by a female artist and garnering more than 600 million on-demand streams in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music. Plus, her album Cuz I Love You bowed in the top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and has earned one million equivalent album units in America. Lizzo’s latest hit single, “Good as Hell,” has already hit the Top 10 of the Hot 100 chart, thanks in part to a new remix of the track with Ariana Grande. She is also quickly approaching one billion global streams and has already more than doubled the record for the longest Hot 100 command for a rap No. 1 by a female artist unaccompanied by another act.
