MANILA - A 23-year-old singer from Lucena City wowed the judges with his unique singing voice.

On Sunday's episode of "Idol Philippines," Ramil Permigones charmed the judges with his rendition of "Put Your Head on My Shoulder."

The judges were also quick to note how Permigones' speaking voice is very different from that of his singing voice.

"Parang nasa black and white movie ako. I love the classic vibe," James Reid told Permigones.

"At saka kahit luma 'yung kinanta niya, noong ginawa niya, hindi baduy, hindi mukhang laos. Hindi dated, hindi mukhang outdated," Vice Ganda added.

Permigones received four "yesses" from the judges.

Hosted by Billy Crawford, "Idol Philippines" airs Saturdays after "Home Sweetie Home" and Sundays after "Wansapanataym."
