He told his fans in the Philippines to watch him perform on the said talent show in the US. “Guys, this is it. Ito na ‘yung pagkakataong hinihintay ko. So please abangan niyo po ako,” he wrote.
As he sets to perform on stage, he was accompanied by his wife telling his hardship all through his journey.
Pomoy also 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.
Alesha Dixon lauded the performance because of its uniqueness. “I want to see something different, something unique and Marcelito you just gave it to us. It is absolutely brilliant.”
Heidi Klum, for her part, said: “Honestly, this is one of the craziest things I ever heard in my entire life. Your voice, your range, and your sound is just so out of this world.”
