Introducing “XLR8”, 8-member Filipino boy band
The first filipino boy band to debut this year!^_^. XLR8 consists of 8 members namely ADRIAN MUHLACH, ARKIN DEL ROSARIO, CALEB SANTOS, CARLO LAZERNA, HIDEAKI TORIO, FRANCIS ALBERT RAMOS “KIKO”, MELJOHN OR MJ MAGNO, MM MAGNO. XLR8 (pronounced as accelerate) is an 8-member boy group from the Philippines created by Viva Records. It took Viva one year of auditions, dance and voice training and to find the right songs for the boys from producers Christian de Walden and Marcus Davis. (credits: angelotan)
I first heard them on candy pastel’s site. I got excited and anticipated their debut since magno is one of the members. I like him coz he’s good in singing and dancing. (saw it on youtbe/friendster i think). But when I saw them on Party Pilipinas (i accidentally switch the channel coz commercial pa sa ABS), I was totally surprise!. I thought they got something like the korean boy group. I think charms and looks is all they got. I’m not saying they can’t sing, it’s like they can sing and dance but compared to korean boy group, they’re absolutely nothing. Their song is catchy but I really don’t like it coz it’s a copycat song. The tune is the same with Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry. They dance well but they don’t dance together. Pop Girls are even better than XLR8, at least their song is ‘original’. I say, they BADLY need a practice!! (if they want to level up to korean boy bands). Clearly 1 yr. training is not enough for them to be successful as kpop band.
I’m just stating my opinions on this new boy group. Hopefully in the future, they’ll do better. go go go XLR8!!
They should also appear in ABS-CBN not only in GMA because one channel is not enough to show Philippine’s pride.^_^
