Episode 1

The first episode of Philippine Idol featured its first major auditon venue, Manila. The PICC served as its venue, housing the thousands of hopefuls for the Manila auditions.

This episode proved to be a good pilot episode for Philippine Idol. It had a good mix of comedy and drama that each Philippine Idol hopeful provides.

Between audition scenes other footages are shown. Siyempre para hindi naman masyado nakakasawa. Kasi mahirap naman kung puro kantahan at audtion lang ang pinalabas the whole 60 minutes. So in between auditions footages, tv host Ryan Agoncillo shares interesting facts about the audition venue. for example, he mentioned some tourist destinations in Manila like the Baywalk. Aside from this,since this was their first episode, the judges had their time to be known. This makes us viewers aware of the judges credentials which are the reasons why they have the unenviable task of screening the next singing star, the Philippine Idol.
