Here are the comments from the judges:
Actress and singer Sharon Cuneta:
Of course from the very beginning, I called the three of you, my “happy”. Because every Saturday and Sunday, you make me happy. And I’m sad, we’re about to end and I will really miss the three of you. And even if Francis hasn’t changed up to now, I love him because he looks so much like Nicki, right? I just hope Nicki can accept this with her whole heart when she sees this. That was a fantastic number! I love you Mackie, I love you Keifer, I love you Francis.
Singer-songwriter Gary Valenciano:
You know, we have some papers here so we can write down notes. Look at what I wrote…”TNT Boys”, I wrote nothing else. Because you captured all of us tonight, as you always have. TNT Boys this is the only thing I can say to you… (Crowd chants TNT!TNT!) that- TNT! TNT!. Remember boys, I do not know up to when this will last. But as you grow older, I hope you never ever forget those who love you, those whom you have inspired. And you remember, we as your jurors and as your Uncles and Auntie, we will love you always, and we will be here for you always.
Singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid:
TNT Boys, you know, I was thinking of a millennial term. I can’t think of anything, so I searched for a millennial term. Do you know how I will describe your performance in millennial terms? That was totally “kainti”. Nakaka intimidate -It’s intimidating. If I were your competitor, I’ll be a goner. I would be intimidated. You are very good, you are extremely good! That makes me so proud. Of course, not to diminish the other guys, they are also good. But the three of you…look at the reaction of the crowd to you! TNT Boys, we’re very proud of you, Congratulations!
