Melinda Doolittle, David Archuleta and Jessica Sanchez of American Idol, Ella Henderson of X Factor (UK), Marco Germar of So You Think You Can Dance (U.S.) and most recently Morisette Amon of The Voice (Philippines) were the awesome talents I personally rooted for in their respective contest seasons in the past. Click the name of these talents to read my posts about them for me to prove my point. I can’t seem to remember when was the last time that my chosen contender won the contest he or she is competing on TV.
Strangely, despite their breathtaking performances, no one among these brilliant and gifted contestants did won in their respective talent contests. They were beaten by other competitors as oddly voted by their respective country’s viewers. Honestly, I’d rather observe a grass growing than listen or watch these so called winners perform.
Anyway, it seems that it was not America, nor the UK, nor the Philippines talent contests that has the right sagacity and discernment for what a true talent really means. Surprisingly, Australia does have the right vibe, groove and keenness on this matter. I am saying this because just tonight, Australia has voted and honored Dami Im to be this year’s X Factor (Australia) WINNER!!!
I was slightly freaked out when the host announced who this year’s winner was. I was clapping and cheering when Dami Im’s name was called. All I can say is that endearing Australia got it right in the pocket… Aussies know what exceptional talent is…
Here’s the spectacular and one-of-a-kind final number of Dami Im singing Purple Rain…
Congratulations Dami Im!!! Congratulations Australia!!!
Sa sobrang galak, parang gusto kong maligo ng may pakpak!
