MANILA, Philippines — The competition on Idol Philippines just got tougher during week two with two contestants being forced to say goodbye once again. 

In week two, the remaining Top 10 interpreted the songs of two of today's top singers — Erik Santos and Yeng Constantino, who also served as mentors during the rehearsals.

Instead of being called individually, those who advanced to the next round were paired up until 4 contestants —Renwick Benito, Trish Bonilla, Lance Busa and Sheland Faelnar remained on stage.

The 4 received the lowest combined scores from the judges and public voting. In the end, it was Renwick and Trish who bid goodbye.
