  1. For this year, not only the 13 pairs of candidates vying for Mr and Miss AIE Philippines 2013 will be part of the production number but also the 3 finalists for Singing Superstar and 3 group-finalists of Dance Craze. This means that contestants for the Singing Superstar and Dance Craze need not only practice their contest piece/performance, but also rehearse part of song(s) or dance(s) specified below. We will be using this production setup to eliminate hiring 3rd-party talents while at the same time showcase the best talents AIE campuses have.

    The Opening Production number is divided into 4 major parts:

    Part 1 : Singing Superstar Showdown (5 minutes and 15 seconds). The Singing Superstar Showdown will be started with the song Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga. The 1st stanza and 1st chorus will be sung by Dr. Barmie M. Caluza, who will then introduce the three finalists for AIE Singing Superstar. The first Singing Superstar finalist will continue the 2nd stanza and 2nd chorus of the Edge of Glory. The 2nd finalist will sing 1 stanza and 1 chorus of Where Have You Been by Rihanna. To end the first part of the production number, the 3rd Singing Superstar finalist will sing 1 stanza and 1 chorus of Dance Again by Jennifer Lopez.

    Minus 1 of the actual medley songs is attached in the email of this communications and is also available for download at the official FB Page of Mr and Miss AIE Philippines at (look for the Opening Production Number post in the timeline). Likewise, a Plus 1 of the actual medley of songs is also attached in the email of this communications for practicing purposes.

    In case a male contestant will be part of the finalists, the rest of the songs will remain except to the part where the male finalist will be given a song based on his vocal range and/or preference. Selection of song and re-scoring of medley music will happen right after elimination.

    Part 4 : Finale : Edge of Glory – Reprise (35 seconds). All Singing Superstar Finalists, together with Dr. Barmie Caluza, will sing the last chorus of Edge of Glory while all pageant candidates do simple dance steps such as waving hands up and down. Dance Craze group finalists do their own freestyle dance performances down the stage.

    Rehearsal of opening production number of finalists for Dance Craze and Singing Superstar shall happen right after the elimination and during the Final Blocking Rehearsal on December 7, 2012 3:00 PM on stage of pageant venue.
