    Are previous winners from JPOP 2009 onwards allowed to join?


    1. I believe that the old rule stands: the top three performers from previous contests are disqualified for this year.

      I think pwede na. May sasali kasi na member ng nanalo na dati na band.

      Best is, try to call them para sigurado ka sa rules.

    that’s sad, however that rule is needed to give chance for other performers. It’s fair enough

    I don’t get it when people say it’s sad that the former winners will be joining again. It’s either they’ve already accepted defeat from these winners or they think that they will have a lot more chance winning if they will be competing on a loser batch. that’s a lot more depressing, if you ask me.

    you know in sports? especially basketball, the champions are always allowed to compete again, even if there are teams that really suck big time. because that’s how you have a good win, beating something/someone better than you in a competition.

    When will the winners be announced? >___< I'm nervous ;w;


    1. The pre-selected finalists will compete next week at the Grand Finals at the Mall of Asia.
