The Final Performance
Meanwhile, for the finals Marcelito sang the classic “Beauty and the Beast” by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson, which was a choice by judge Simon Cowell. Many people were taken aback by the judge himself though when he ended up commenting that Marcelito’s last performance was “predictable“.
Of course, we beg to differ. See for yourself Marcelito Pomoy’s final performance for “AGT: The Champions” by playing the YouTube clip below.
Nevertheless, during today’s final show, we could see that Marcelito Pomoy was also just really glad to share his talent with the world. After all, a lot of people from different countries were able to witness his unique talent and recognized him for it. As his wife who joined him on stage after the announcement said, “he just wanted to say thank you. Thank you so much to everybody. This is a big opportunity for him. Thank you so much.”
Of course as Filipinos, we are also just really proud of Marcelito considering the journey that he took. For sure, it was not easy and yet he was able to win a lot of people’s hearts with his voice. Likewise, AGT judge Heidi Klum thinks so too as she addresses her statement below to the Filipino dual-voice singer.
“I love you so much. You have the most beautiful voice. I should actually say the most beautiful voices inside of you. You are a champion. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with all of us.”
Again, we just want to congratulate Marcelito Pomoy for finishing strong, and we wish him all the best in the journeys he has yet to take!
