1 Minute Translation Challenge with TNT The Erpats Rico, Antonio and John July 11, 2018 08:54 PM

They may be older than the other contestants of It’s Showtime’s Tawag Ng Tanghalan, but they’re showing the madlang people that their gears are anything but rusty. John Raymundo, Rico Garcia and Antonio Sabalza all took on the Translation Challenge and they made it easier than it looks.

Rico knew right away that “ikamamatay ko” line was from “Dying Inside To Hold You” by Timmy Thomas, which was also recently covered by Darren Espanto. He was also first to recall Air Supply’s “The One That You Love.” But it was John who scored a point with “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now” by Celine Dion, even though it was Rico that sang it.

If you want to see these gentlemen prove that age is just a number,  then make sure to catch them in this year’s grandest showdown as The Erpats on TNT All-Star Showdown.

On July 28 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, their trio will be joining TNT Divas’ Rachel Gabreza, Gidget Dela Llana and Remy Luntayao. There’s also Hala which is composed of Hazelyn Cascano, Lucky Robles and Alfred Relatado. Another new group making their debut is Cove which includes Sofronio Vasquez, Christian Bahaya and JM Bales. As well as Pauline Agupitan and Lalaine Arana’s duo, Bukang Liwayway.

Catch all their performances and TNT’s other favorite names like Noven Belleza, Janine Berdin, Sam Mangubat and TNT Boys. Don’t worry, they’ll be singing all the songs in their original languages, so you won’t have to translate anything.
