Angeline Quinto appeared on Princess And I during the series’ July 9 episode.
The singer and actress played a cameo who saved the character of Mikay (Kathryn Bernardo) from embarrassment and from losing her scholarship.
In the story, the Queen (Gretchen Barretto) wanted Angeline to sing at her party and gave Mikay the responsibility of inviting the singer. If Angeline didn’t show up, Mikay would be dismissed as second assistant of the Queen who also sponsors her scholarship.
Prior to the party, the Queen wanted to have the best singer in the Philippines to perform at the event, and Angeline’s name came up. Obviously, she’s being hyped as the best in the land. In press releases, she’s often tagged as Pop Superstar (while Sarah Geronimo has always been Pop Star Princess).
I have nothing against Angeline, though. But is she really the best one we have around? Or has it something to do with having won (thus, being discovered) in a contest produced by her home network? (While Sarah came from a singing competition from another channel.)
Just my two cents, though.
