NO TV HOST: First to admit that she’s no TV host, Jennylyn Mercado humbly stated that she had to undergo a workshop to prepare her for the task.
The awarded actress launched a new reality show September 3 where she’s the main host. She said that while acting is a breeze to her, hosting for TV is an entirely different ball game.
She took her training under versatile TV and stage director, Floy Quintos.
Prior, Jenn has been hosting, and continues to do so, a cooking show called “Everyday Sarap with CDO” on GMA News TV.
‘Mas madali yun, kasi cooking-cooking lang, at konting kwentuhan,’ she said.
Superstar Duets is a celebrity singing competition where 8 contestants perform duets with impersonators of foreign artists.

COMEDY-TALENT SHOW: A first in the Philippines, the comedy-slash-talent show has enlisted as panel of judges Allan K, Aicelle Santos, and Christian Bautista.
Asked what he looks for during a team performance, Allan K warned the contestants: “When you’re in a duet, you’re in a team. So, ang hinahanap ko ay marunong dapat makipagblend sa boses ng kanyang ka-duet, marunong makipag-interact.
Hindi siya nagsosolo. Ayoko na nagdu-duet mag-isa. Dapat isipin niya may kasama siya because it’s a team.”
Competing to become the first “Superstar Duets” Champion are Mike “Pekto” Nacua, Joross Gamboa, Jerald Napoles, Rita Daniela, Denise Barbacena, Nar Cabico, Divine Grace, Osang.
Under the helm of director Bert de Leon, “Superstar Duets” airs every Saturday night after “Magpakailanman” on GMA7.
