The finals night of this year's Philippine Popular Music Festival (Philpop) was held at the Capitol Commons, Ortigas, Pasig City on Sunday, Dec 2.

From the 30 semi-finalists in this year's competition, 10 songs were chosen, composed and interpreted by some of the country's top songwriters and musicians. This year, songwriter Chud Festejo's "Nanay Tatay" won the Php 1 Million top prize.
