12 Breakthrough Acts named to perform on Y! Rocks



A final roster of 12 "Breakthrough Acts" were adjudged late Monday, December 5, to perform alongside top Pinoy music icons at the milestone Yahoo! music event, Y! Rocks, on December 8 to be simultaneously held at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, SM Cebu and SM Davao.

The aspiring acts were judged based on originality (40%), musicality (30%) and chemistry (30%). Judges were led by Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM) Secretary General Dingdong Avanzado.

Instead of an original planned allotment of four "Breakthrough Acts" per region, ten acts from Metro Manila and Luzon landed in the top 12 and will all perform in the SM Mall of Asia leg of the concert. Only one act each was qualified to perform in the Y! Rocks concerts slated in SM Cebu and SM Davao.
