    I have known he was married since the show started

    I also know why he writes his name MiG and why they used that pic of him on the website, the one with the necklace, it wasn't his choice.

    I happen to find him smokin' hot, but whenever I hear his name, I have a flashback to "Top Gun", because that was the term used for enemy fighter planes!

    Yes, you can help Miguel "Mig" Ayesa win in the on-going reality-TV show Rockstar: INXS where he’s one of the finalists for the slot as lead singer of the formerly mega-selling band INXS.

    As Funfare "scooped" several issues via an exclusive report by Edmund Silvestre (news editor of the New York-based The Filipino Reporter), Mig is a Filipino raised in Australia. He’s a nephew of my favorite lady lawyer, Katrina Legarda, who’s the cousin of Mig’s mom Carmen Legarda. Mig’s father is Titos Ayesa.

    Before I tell you about the voting procedure, let us hear from Suzette Montinola, Mig’s first cousin (their moms are sisters):

    Mig was born on Jan. 12, 1970. The Ayesas migrated to Australia with Miguel and his brother Andrew in the early ’70s.

    As fas as I can remember, Mig wanted to be a rock singer of a band ever since he was small. He has always had a band and has, from the time we were 10, written, recorded and performed his own music. Growing up, Mig took part in various plays and musicals in school, and performed gigs with his band Lovetown on the side. He also collaborated with Martin Nievera and Louie Ocampo on the song Looks Like Love for Martin’s Time album.

    In 1991, Mig was offered the role of Richie Valens in the musical The Buddy Holly Story which toured Australia. The part led to the same role in the West End production of the same musical. He practically stole the show when he sang La Bamba. People got up to dance and women threw their bras at him, swooning. It was pretty incredible!

    After The Buddy Holly Show, Mig went back to Australia and took part in various musical productions. He was Angel in Rent, Joe Vargas in Fame and Danny Zuko in Grease. He also did a Pokemon tour around the world, was a Brooklyn vampire in Queen of the Damned and was considered to play Merry the hobbit in Lord of the Rings.

    In 2002, Mig married Simone de la Rue, a dancer and actress. Soon after, he landed the role of Galileo in the West End production of We Will Rock You, the musical based on the music of Queen. He has impresssed Queen lead guitarist Brian May with whom Mig is now working on some of Mig’s original compositions.

    Mig was doing We Will Rock You when the chance to audition for Rockstar INXS came. It was a gruelling process but he got in and made it to Hollywood. He’s living in a Hollywood mansion. The contest goes on for three months.

    His favorite beach is Boracay. He dreams about the fresh Mango Shake the food in True Food (a restaurant in Boracay).

    And now, here’s how you can vote for Mig and help him win:

    Every Wednesday, Star World viewers in the Philippines can cast their votes for their favorite contender via SMS. Voting windows will open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. right after the live performance show. Rockstar: INXS show is aired on Star World Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m. (live performance) and 8:50 p.m. (primetime repeat), and Thursdays at 9 a.m. (live results) and 9 p.m. (primetime repeat).

    To vote, key in your favorite rocker’s finalist code (INXS O1, INXS 02, INXS 03, etc.) and send it to 283 (Smart subscribers) or 2800 (Globe subscribers). Finalist codes will be featured on the live performance episodes of Rockstar: INXS every Wednesday. A confirmation message will be sent upon receipt of the SMS.

    For help or instructions on how to vote, simply type INXS HELP and send to 283 (Smart subscribers) or 2800 (Globe subscribers), and an SMS with the detailed information will be sent to you. To retrieve the code of the finalist you wish to vote for, key in INXS CODE and send to 283 (Smart subscribers) or 2800 (Globe subscribers). Each SMS message costs P2.50. Or log on to www.startv.com.rockstar for more details.

    Once you’ve voted, the three finalists with the least votes will be short-listed for elimination on Thursday’s results show. They will each get a last chance to strut their stuff before INXS band members make the final cut for the week.

    For 13 weeks (starting on July 12), the fate of the world’s next rock sensation will be in your hands.

    oops, I didn't know you have to provide the link for this article.

    After last nights show I definately think he is a underdog that is going to be a front runner soon. Just the breif snip of him singing "We are the Champions" showed he had more vocal power (talent) than we have seen so far, along with his stage experience, and contemporary style. (I wish he would get a new hair-style, just not my favorite look).

    The editing really can sway the audience - he got some good TV time. (finally)

    Who does MIG look like? There is someone he looks just like but I can't put my finger on it.

    If you ask me he looks a lot like Dominic from Real World LA...many moons ago.

    I think you're right on all counts, Rumi. He definitely got the favorable edit last night. But they really did show a hint of his talent, as well, which is nice to see. It will be interesting to see how they present him in coming weeks. Will it follow the traditional reality TV formula - set up a golden boy/girl in order to bring them crashing dramatically down at just the right moment (JD?), or will they stick with what so far seems to be pretty straightforward presentation?

    If truth is relative, how do you know?
