The King of R&B Jayr made the judges stand up on their feet once again after an another impressive performance on the fourth week of ABS-CBN’s “Your Face Sounds Familiar”.
Jayr impersonated country singer and songwriter Kenny Rogers and performed his hit “Islands in the Stream” together with Karla Estrada who is impersonating Dolly Parton on this week’s duets episode.
It was an ‘amazing’ performance according to the three judges Sharon Cuneta, Jed Madela and Gary Valenciano.
“Jay R, first you didn’t know the song so well, but you sang it like you knew it,” Valenciano said. “Then the second is, Kenny Rogers, sabi ko paano gagawin ni Jay-R si Kenny Rogers na hindi naman gumagalaw pero nasa style, nasa aura, ‘yung posture… [Bakit] ka pa sumali? Ang galing galing mo.”
Jayr won his second P100,000 on the show and will be donating half of the prize to his chosen charity, Stairway Foundation.
He now leads the competition with a total of 104 points since the show’s first episode while Maxene Magalona is at the bottom with 41 points.
