REGINE VELASQUEZ-ALCASID Defends Fellow 'Idol Philippines' Judges
Veteran director and screenwriter Jose Javier Reyes gave his two cents on issues regarding the panel of judges in Idol Philippines. The Walwal filmmaker took to Twitter to suggest that Jed Madela, Gary Valenciano, and Morissette Amon take over judging duties for the singing competition.

He also added, "Credibility is important... more than celebrity." This comes after Vice Ganda, Moira dela Torre, and James Reid have become the butt of criticisms over the past few weeks over how they critique contestants.
While some claimed that only Regine Velasquez-Alcasid was the only "credible" judge in the panel, Asia's Songbird defended her fellow judges anew. "Mayroon kaming mga kanya kanyang specialty. Ako obviously, sa technicals ako. A lot of times, they don’t even question what I say. So kanya kanya kami ng trabaho. They were chosen because mayroon silang expertise din," she explained.
