MANILA -- A Chigao-based teen, who barely speaks Tagalog, won over the judges on Sunday's episode of "Pinoy Boyband Superstar."

Russell Reyes, 17, got all four nods with his rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Lately" and Bituin Escalante's "Kung Ako Na Lang Sana."

Comedian Vice Ganda conceded that Reyes has the voice and the looks but remains skeptical since he can't speak Tagalog.

Singer Yeng Constantino added that Reyes' strong personality could comes across as arrogance.

But actor Aga Muhlach said Reyes' voice goes well with Filipino songs and that he has the good lucks of a boy band member.

Hosted by Billy Crawford, "Pinoy Boyband Superstar" airs Saturdays after "Home Sweetie Home" and on Sundays after "Goin' Bulilit."
