Melai impersonates Rihanna in 'Your Face Sounds Familiar'

“My husband says I look like Rihanna. I often perform Rihanna songs in mall shows. I really feel like I’m Rihanna. Viewers should watch out for my transformation,” said Melai, who idolizes the Barbadian singer.

She also shared that she finds it difficult to act serious when she performs, but is definitely happy when she sees the audience laugh.

“When I perform I don’t look at the audience because I don’t want to lose my focus. When they laugh, I just think that I’m making them happy. I’m grateful to have been given the chance to bring happiness to people,” Melai added.

Melai is not the only celebrity performer who will be copying her idol this weekend. Maxene Magalona will impersonate no other than her father, Master Rapper Francis Magalona, while Jay-R will give her first female performance as Beyonce. Other must-watch performances include Nyoy Volante as Reyna ng Kundiman Sylvia La Torre, Jolina Magdangal as Queen of Soul Jaya, Tutti Caringal as Lou Bega, Karla Estrada as Dulce, and Edgar Allan Guzman as Ed Sheeran.
