GMA’s all-original singing tilt ‘The Clash’ returns for Season 3

Isa laban sa lahat: The Clash Season 3 is bigger, fiercer, and surprising at every turn.

Beginning October 3, a new breed of talented contenders will battle it out towards becoming the next singing sensation on GMA Network’s all-original musical competition – The Clash Season 3!

Known for its exciting twists at every round, this season promises fiercer and tougher singing face-offs where only the best of the best Clashers all over the country will make it to the top.

Returning as Clash Masters are Total Heartthrob Rayver Cruz and Asia’s Pop Diva Julie Anne San Jose who are both eager to be back on-stage as the competition’s hosts.

Masaya and excited kami,” Rayver said. “Alam namin na mahirap magbalik-trabaho lalo na sa panahon ngayon pero nandito kami para ihatid ang minahal ng viewers na mga pasabog ng The Clash at para ipakilala ang bagong mahuhusay na Clashers.”

Julie Anne shared that preparations for the show were taken to another level to ensure that strict safety protocols were followed, “Unang-una is to observe physical distancing and follow the guidelines and safety protocols. Preparations had to be taken to another level. Wala kaming audience, mas kaunti ‘yung tao. Nevertheless, I’m very excited about the Clashers’ performances.”

Also making their way backstage again to get to know the Clashers are Journey Hosts Rita Daniela and Ken Chan.

Rita expressed her excitement to learn the contestants’ off-cam stories, “I’m more than happy because I get to work again with the people that I love! I really can’t wait to hear all the wonderful stories of our Clashers. I’m excited to be their ate.”

Likewise, Ken is also looking forward to meeting the new group of Clashers. “Na-miss ko ‘yung pakikisalamuha namin sa Clashers at pati na rin sa mga pamilya nila,” he shared. “Kaya ngayong season 3 ay excited akong malaman ang kuwento ng bawat isa sa kanila.”

Taking their seats anew as The Clash Panel are Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha, Asia’s Romantic Balladeer Christian Bautista, and Comedy Concert Queen AiAi Delas Alas.

“I always look for someone with a certain uniqueness in his/her voice, someone who sings with genuine emotion, and has impressive stage presence and an amazing personality,” Lani said. “I’m absolutely excited to see and experience what’s going to happen in this season.”

For Christian, the vocal battles will be even more intense, “The intensity of judging, guiding, and constructively building new champions is very exciting. It will really be more intense and nerve-wracking for the contestants because we are facing tough times right now.”

Aiai, in turn, is also stoked to be back in the studio, “Nasa ‘new normal’ na tayo kaya we have the opportunity to do things differently and better. The Clash is always big, and I’m sure it will be even bigger ngayon dahil sa mahuhusay na contestants. Hindi lang ako excited, I am ablaze with energy para sa The Clash Season 3!”

The Clash Season 3 in under the direction of Louie Ignacio and musical arrangements by Marc Lopez.
