Everyone’s excited for the full video of Marcelito Pomoy’s amazing performance for the semi-finals of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” edition 2020, especially after the show released a sneak peek of his performance in a 48-second video posted on their official YouTube account.
It can be recalled that Marcelito surprised the world with his “solo-duet” of “The Prayer”, a difficult duet originally performed by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli and Canadian singer Céline Dion, when he first entered the stage for “AGT: The Champions”.
The audience, even the judges, called for Howie Mandel to press the Golden Buzzer, but the judge explained that it was too early in the show to do so. This did not sit well with fans who think that the show is rigged and that Marcelito, despite his rare and impressive talent, might not really win because the judges (and the Super Fans) would probably pick an American to win the show.
But with the show posting the sneak peek that would get nearly 3 million views in 2 days, before they made it private just before the show started on February 3 evening (February 4, Philippine time), many netizens hope that the judges might have changed their minds. Perhaps Marcelito has a bigger chance of winning the show?
Pinoys think the preview was “bitin”, but it still went viral even as everyone waited for the full video of the Pilipinas Got Talent grand champion’s stellar performance of another Andrea Bocelli song, “Con Te Partirò”.
“I believe that you have the best shot of winning this whole thing,” said Howie Mandel.
“Absolutely brilliant song choice! It really enabled you to shine,” Alesha Dixon chimed in.
“Marcelito, I’ve been waiting for you all day to come on to the stage. For me, you are my favorite,” declared Heidi Klum.
“There is no denying that you have a very unique, incredible special talent,” said Simon Cowell. He challenged Marcelito to take a risk when he does get into the finals of the show but warned that he might no longer have the surprise factor that got him this far into the competition.
“But I do believe that with a gift live you’ve got, you’ve got a massive career in front of you. You really, really do.”
