I know it’s the third time you perform in front of us, but it never gets old. Like when those voices are all coming out and it’s like so many voices inside of your body, it is just incredible over and over and over again. I can feel it from the reactions of the audience, too. It’s amazing!” said Heidi Klum. “You are also very, very smart, because you always picked songs that we all know and love, so we can always kind of follow. You’re so incredible.

Even Howie Mandel praised Marcelito, despite gaining flak earlier for not pressing the Golden Buzzer for the Pinoy artist.

“Oh, Marcelito! When I first saw you, you blew me away because it was the surprise of it all. Like we don’t expect both voices to come out of oner person. I thought it was a gimmick but the second time I saw you, I enjoyed it just as much – if not more!” he gushed. “And I feel the same thing about tonight. You’re making the right choices on the right song. Great job tonight!”

Alesha Dixon feels the same way.

Marcelito, the song choice was perfect! And I actually think that you’ve upped your game from the last time we had you sing. The high notes on that song were beautiful. You absolutely nailed it tonight and I couldn’t be happier for you,” she said. “Love you!

But Simon while Simon praised Marcelito, he said the song was ‘predictable’ and not something that would have impressed everyone in the Finals.

You are a very nice, very talented guy, I gotta tell you. You really, really are – and this is even better than the last performance you did. Much, much better! However, if it was my choice, on a night like this, I would have done something less predictable,” Simon started.

How was that predictable?” a flabbergasted Alesha interrupted. She asked again, “How was that predictable?”

The songs he’s chosen. The very safe, the kind of, you know… I get it they are popular songs but I just think that tonight if he had done something out of his comfort zone, like a shock to everybody. Like “My God he’s chosen this song!” That would have given you another moment because I think you’ve got a massive career in front of you. I really, really do!” Simon said.

I agree! Good luck tonight, Marcelito! Let’s hear it for Marcelito Pomoy!” Terry Crews announced.

After videos of the performance was leaked on YouTube, supposedly by furious crew who believe Marcelito deserves to win, the show posted an early release on their official YouTube channel:

She joked that she has to do a quick video in case her dad catches her messing with his car which is now being used by her sibling. She added that it’s her first time to do a car wash, but netizens (well, the guys for sure) quickly commented on the video that she’s doing the right thing.

Ito yung pineplay sa kasalan habang nakapila ang tao sa buffet. Hayss miss ko na [chicken] cordon bleu,” a netizen jokingly lamented while alluding to Sitti’s “Para sa Akin” song. LOL.

Sitti’s Song Popular in Wedding Receptions

Pinay bossa nova singer Sitti Navarro recently went viral after responding to a netizen’s post about her song and chicken cordon bleu at weddings.

The singer laughed at how people have come to associate the song with wedding buffets (and chicken cordon bleu since this is a popular reception menu). She also admits that she misses attending and singing at weddings or other special events. Though she did not mention it, Sitti refers to the lack of events due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Meanwhile, a lot of netizens commented that they feel the same way that Ron Ron does when they hear Sitti’s song because this is often played in the weddings that they had attended.

Pag pineplay to naaamoy mo yung mga handa sa buffet. Hahaha,” one wrote.

Kanya kanyang plate kasi sa buffet kaya bagay yung song na “Para sa kain”(Akin) 😂😂😂,” another joked.
