Marcelito Pomoy impressed the judges of one of the biggest talent search show in the world.
Marcelito Pomoy now advances to the semi-finals of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions.” He earned the spot through the votes of “superfans,” who are said to be fans from each of the states of the USA.
Marcelito’s performance was the first act to be confirmed for the semifinals from week 2.
He had earlier received a standing ovation from the judges. The Filipino singer left the judges in awe when he treated them to a unique singing performance.
A short video also gave a glimpse of how Marcelito rose from the li
fe of being an orphan into a singing grand champion. Marcelito won “Pilipinas Got Talent” in 2011 and got reunited with his family.
During Marcelito’s performance on “America’s Got Talent,” he rendered Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion’s “The Prayer.” What impressed the judges the most was when Marcelito sang both the male and female parts of the song.
Simon Cowell, who’s known to be hard to please was impressed. He said, “That was what I call a 10, as simple as that. I have a feeling that the super fans will put you through to the next round.”
Judge Howei Mandel was also blown away and said, “That was so unique, you are a beautiful, wonderful singer with a young woman tr
apped inside of you.”
Judge Alesha Dixon said Marcelito’s performance was like no other. “I want to see something different, something unique and Marcelito you just gave that to us. It was absolutely brilliant,” Dixon said.
“Honestly, this is one of the craziest things I ever heard in my entire li
fe. Your voice, your range, your sound is just so out of this world,” Heidi Klum also praised him.
