Every year, hundreds of hopefuls participate in TV talent competition shows hoping to make it big and become the next superstar. Most end up falling by the way side, leaving only an often forgotten mark of their time on air. But others really do know how to make the most out of their 15 minutes of fame to leave a memorable impression on viewers. After all, you only have so much time to wow audiences when competing on TV. That was what TikTok star Querubin Llavore did when she recently competed again on It’s Showtime’s Tawag Ng Tanghalan segment. Not only was her return to the TNT stage her most successful yet, but she made sure everyone got a taste of her distinctly Gen Z charms.


This all started when Querubin competed on Tawag Ng Tanghalan during its February 12 episode. This actually was not the first time the 21-year-old participated in the competition. All the way back in 2016, she came on the show with the hopes of defeating reigning champion Gigi de Lana (yes, that Gigi de Lana). Querubin sadly did not unseat Gigi at the time. But six years later, she came back stronger than ever.

She performed Rivermaya’s 241 and did an amazing job. To her surprise, she won that round, which caused her to get emotional and shed tears. But her true moment of stardom came when she caught the camera and quickly went from crying to sticking her tongue out. A true baddie indeed. It was like she went through five different emotions at the same time. The clip quickly went viral on social media, even attracting the attention of people outside the Philippines.

From then on, every time she came back to Tawag Ng Tanghalan, not only did she slay her performances, but she delivered even more viral and meme-worthy moments. Who else would think of serving face while balling their eyes out? In all seriousness though, Querubin is a genuinely good singer. She even got a standing ovation from judges Ogie Alcasid and Yeng Constantino when she performed Gayuma by Abra. Not only does she have the charisma, but the talent and star potential, too.


Her bubbly and cool personality shone through in the show and she knew how to have fun. For example, she was talking with the hosts and said that her outfit for that day was giving Euphoria vibes or how she would easily gel with the other hosts in random banter. Querubin revealed in an interview that during her first time on the show, she was just pretending to be someone she’s not and what we saw now was the real her. Clearly, we need her to stay true to herself, because it’s a wonderful thing. Heck, even Bretman Rock is a fan of hers.

Here are just some of the best memes we found on social media that highlights Querubin’s animated reactions and personality.
