2 Filipinos on the American Idol top 24 Season 10
Every time I watch American Idol, I'm always waiting for the Filipinos that audition and until they make it to the final 24. At that time, I will start to support them and cheer with them. You know guys that's all I can do. Unfortunately, I wasn't blessed with a golden voice lol. I'm still practicing my voice skills at our neighborhood's karaoke. hahaha! jk.
So now we are in another season and the battle has begun among these great singers. The good news for us is that there are 2 Filipinos who made it to the top 24 of American Idol. Clint Jun Gamboa was the first man selected to the 12 male finalists and Thia Megia, after a nerve-racking discussion, was the last contestant selected to the 12 female finalists. It seems like most of the finalists have some foreign blood as few were just traditional Americans.
Our fellow Filipinos have traditionally done well in this competition. Camille Velasco finished in the top 9 and also remember Jasmine Trias who finished in the Final 3 and she became popular in the Philippines (they both were in Season 3). Ramielle Malubay was the last Filipino who made it to the final 24 in American Idol Season 7. She ended at the top 9.
Next week, the 10th season of American Idol, will start the battle for the best of the best. Hopefully, our fellow Filipinos can make it up to the top. Good luck to the Fil-Am contestants.
