The auditionees have been reduced to the final 3 for Kim: Rachelle Ann Go, Aicelle Santos and Frencheska Farr.

Party Pilipinas did a Miss Saigon medley with the 3 of them plus another girl:
Aicelle is the first one singing (Movie in My Mind), she has short hair and a sleeveless dress
Frencheska is the second one singing (finishing off Gigi's part of MIMM), in the 3/4 sleeve dress
Rachelle I think couldn't be there that day so she pops up on the screen singing the last of MIMM and I think most of Sun & Moon

Thought the people on the board would like to see the contenders for Kim + her understudies :)
Seen:
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (UK tour, Wolverhampton), RENT 20th Anniversary Concert (Stoke-on-Trent), Evita (UK tour, Wolverhampton), Wicked (London), The Commitments (London), Les Miserables (London), Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (UK tour, Birmingham)

Yes, I'd also go with Rachelle.  I also liked the girl who sang before her (the one we don't have a name for).  Having said that, they're all good and I wouldn't like to be having to make that decision.  Good Luck to whoever gets it. :)

The other girl is Rita Iringan, she auditioned too and got at least one callback but obviously didn't get as far as the others. I think all 3 will be Kim in the show, it's just a question of who's principal and who's alternate/understudy.

Also I don't think the revival will be at least for a few months, Rachelle's only just started in Tarzan in Manila and I haven't heard any audition announcements for the other roles.

Spring 2014 has been rumoured for Miss Saigon, I believe it's going into the Prince Edward,

Wherever and whenever it's going to be on, I wish they'd get on with telling us.

Jersey Boys transferring to Piccadily in March 2014, so a Spring/Summer opening for Miss Saigon is possible

I expect they'll announce it by the end of summer and have a huge build up.
