Now here are two competing programs which are both searching for the best singing talent among Filipinos and now we put them head to head against one another and weight them according to various criteria... here we go...

JUDGES. I believe that Pinoy Idol has better and more credible judges considering Wingard, Jolina and Ogie. They have the edge on looking at the real talents in the contestants compared to that of Pinoy Dream Academy. The judges of Pinoy Idol are also more honest and frank compared to the soft judges of Pinoy Dream Academy.

TALENT. I give this to Pinoy Dream Academy. They had better contestants and better pool of possible singers compared to Pinoy Idol. I do not see anyone in their group who can be seen as not a good one.

DEVELOPING STARS: I think once again Pinoy Dream Academy is more capable of developing the contestants. Besides the competition they actually train the scholars as they call if to make their voices and talent improve. Pinoy Idol only focuses on self-improvement by the idols without much input or training from the judges or the show.

POPULARITY. Well based on my own observation and this is yet to be verified by the actual ratings Pinoy Dream Academy has an edge over Pinoy Idol on popularity.

HOSTS. Karylle, Raymond Gutierrez and Rhian Ramos has the edge over Nikki Gil, Toni Gonzaga and Billy Crawford. I personally do not like the hosting of Billy Joe because he seems to be like a robot doing the interview. On the other side Raymond Gutierrez has his negatives as well because most of the time he runs out of words.

The Scoereboard:

Pinoy Idol : Judges and Hosts = 2/5
Pinoy Dream Academy : Talent, Developing Stars and Popularity = 3/5

The winner for this face off is Pinoy Dream Academy.

Well this is my personal take and observation and I know you too have yours so let us hear it out...

    Ako ba meron po ako pinag-aralan syempre... in fairness to jolina magaling naman talaga sya... di ko naman sinabing sya ang pinakamagaling di ba? saka kanya-kanyang opinyon yan... baka sayo si bentong pinakamagaling.
