All-Female Rock Band Brings Girl Power To ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’
In 2016, an all-female rock band called Rouge took Pilipinas Got Talent by storm. The quartet auditioned for the Philippines’ version of the franchise with a badass cover of “Zombie” by the Cranberries.
The women said they wanted to represent “girl power,” and that’s exactly what they did. Check out the band’s performance below, and read on to find out more about them.
All-Female Band Rouge Auditions For ‘Got Talent’
The band “had to start from the bottom.” Two of the women were instrumentalists who learned how to sing, while the other two women were singers who learned how to play instruments.
They said they wanted to encourage young girls that “they can be whatever they want to be.” On stage, they said the group represents “girl power.” When the group first took the stage, Got Talent judge Robin Padilla broke into “Be My Lady.”

The women then kicked off an electrifying performance of “Zombie,” while playing guitar, drums, and violin. Robin stood up for the performance and cheered along as Rouge performed.
Rouge received four “yes” votes from the Got Talent judges to move on. They especially liked Gyan, the band’s drummer. The other members are Kara, Princess, and Jeri.
What Is Rouge Up To These Days?
Rouge returned for the semifinals to perform a rock version of Adele’s hit song “Hello.” Unfortunately, they didn’t end up winning Season 5 of Pilipinas Got Talent, but they haven’t stopped performing.
The band recently celebrated their seventh anniversary. They have several singles on Spotify, and in February, they released a music video for their song “Kalimutan Ka.”

“So much gratitude for the blessings the band has given to us as artists and as human beings,” Kara said in a recent interview. “We would have missed beautiful and rich memories of life experiences without each other.”
