MANILA - Filipino singer Marcelito Pomoy received a standing ovation from the judges and the audience of "America's Got Talent: The Champions" after he performed the duet "The Prayer" singing both the male and female parts.
Before his performance, Pomoy, who was accompanied by his wife, told judge Simon Cowell he was there to win the competition.
After his powerful performance, Cowell gave Pomoy a perfect score of 10.
"That was what I call a 10, a simple as that. I have a feeling that the super fans will put you through to the next round," Cowell said.
"That was so unique, you are a beautiful, wonderful singer with a young woman trap inside of you," added Howie Mandel.
Judges Alesha Dixon and Heidi Klum also praised Pomoy's unique performance.
"I want to see something different, something unique and Marcelito you just gave that to us. It was absolutely brilliant," Dixon said.
"Honestly, this is one of the craziest things I ever heard in my entire life. Your voice, your range, your sound is just so out of this world," Klum shared.
Pomoy was the grand champion of the second season of "Pilipinas Got Talent" in 2011, which aired on ABS-CBN.
Pomoy was first recognized abroad for his “golden female voice” when he appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2018.
Last year, he was able to meet his idol, Celine Dion, through DeGeneres.
