Tough competition in all sectors in GMA 7's To the TOP! (photo credits GMA 7)
The competition becomes tougher and tougher as the days go by. Aside from the rigorous dance choreography training, they've been slaving away these past few weeks with covers so they can do classic boy band songs that have hit the world by storm these past few decades. The first cycle tried their very best to give justice to songs from Backstreet Boys and N'SYNC. 

Check out this performance by Team A doing "I Want It That Way!" by Backstreet Boys which topped the charts in 1999 from the album Millennium.

In front of the press a few weeks ago, Team B performed Get Down by the Backstreet Boys. A song that topped the charts a little earlier in 1996. Obviously, they did some parts of it with their own spin plus a whole lot different in choreography.

Miko Manguba, Mico Cruz, Edric Ulang, Lharby Policarpio, Adrian Pascual and Cholo dela Cruz tried to do something else than Backstreet Boys and preferred to make Team C's performance POP. Yes it's that song by N'SYNC done in 2001. They were my choice for this specific week.

As if that wasn't tough enough, they went full blast with Cycle 2 and dedicated specific songs to their families. Starting with this one by Team A's performance of Somebody to Love by Justin Bieber. This is hard to perform LIVE as you can see and the choreography was equally daunting. I could see some of them struggled on the tough parts.


Team B on the other hand chose to perform Without You which was originally done by Usher and David Guetta. Their formations were quite complicated and we need to give them credit for that!

This time, Team C heavily invested in small choreography, more in harmonics, props and singing. It looked clean on video and yes, girls in the studio loved them!

To The Top is the first multi-platform boy band competition in the Philippines. For this week, they're going to have the first elimination this Sunday.
