MNL48 Week 5: Sheki joins Top 10, competition becomes emotional

Although the remaining 60 finalists became closer to reaching their dream of becoming part of the Final 48, they were saddened as another five girls bid goodbye to their MNL48 journey today, March 3, after their performance on ABS-CBN’s It’s Showtime.

Despite being in a competition, the girls have already formed a strong bond and friendship that will continue on even after the idol search. Tears shed as the candidates gave their final messages to their close friends at the back stage after the emotional announcement of this week’s Top 10 and bottom five.

Sheki jumped to Top 3 and is definitely another candidate to watch out for in the coming weeks. Here are the other aspirants who made it to this week’s Top 10 according to their ranking.
