QUEZON CITY – After months of excitement and preparation, classes in the state-of-the-art Top Class campus have finally started. The highly-anticipated pilot episode of Top Class: Rise To P-Pop Stardom - the newest, biggest, most advanced, and most interactive P-Pop talent reality competition in the Philippines - has officially aired on TV5 and Kumu on Saturday (June 18, 2022) at 5pm.
The episode started with a tour of the world-class facilities of the National University Laguna campus and the formal introduction of the main cast: Catriona Gray - Host, Albie Casiño - co-host (tagged as the “Campus Jock”), Brian Puspos - Dance Mentor, Shanti Dope - Rap Mentor, and KZ Tandingan - Vocal Mentor. Of the 30 trainees entering the campus with the goal of fulfilling their P-Pop dreams, only 10 will make it to the finals as stated by the “Queen Mentor”, Catriona Gray. Shortly after the introductions and tour, the trainees immediately got a taste of the campus life as they attended classes with mentor KZ and mentor Brian, and a nerve-wracking practical exam.
As the digital co-host, Yukii Takahashi (tagged as the “Campus Sweetheart”) can be seen on the Top Class Kumu channels (@topclass and @topclassdaily) for exclusive content inside the campus that will be complementing the weekly episodes aired on TV5.
To follow the inspiring and challenging journey of the 30 trainees over the next 9 weeks, make sure to catch the exciting and innovative competition every Saturday 5pm on TV5 and on Kumu (Daily Streaming). For viewers outside of the Philippines, the show is also available to watch on iWantTFC and Myx Global.
