In the home stretch of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” Season 2, Marcelito Pomoy‘s fans have come out in droves to support their favorite singer on social media. This winner of “Philippines’ Got Talent” has the unique ability to sing in both his falsetto voice and his lower register, creating a truly memorable experience when he performs. He’s “very rare among humans,” raves one devotee (see below). The good news? The “AGT” judges praised Marcelito every time he took the stage this season. The bad news? It’s the superfans who pick the winner … and they already voted months ago.
For his final performance on the reality TV show, Marcelito took on the iconic ballad from “Beauty And The Beast” (watch above). In his “AGT” live blog, our recapper John Benutty wrote that he gave “an impressive performance that sets him firmly apart from everyone else in the competition.” However, Benutty added that “a few cracks did show in his delivery.” The singer previously performed “Con Te Partiro” in the semi-finals and “The Prayer” in the auditions.
As for the “America’s Got Talent” judges, Heidi Klum readily admitted that Marcelito’s voice “never gets old.” Howie Mandel noted how he’s “making the right choices on the right songs.” Alesha Dixon proclaimed, “You’ve upped your game on the last time we heard you sing.” And Simon Cowell said he’s a “very nice, very talented guy.”
Besides Marcelito, the other 10 “AGT” finalists are a dog act (Alexa Lauenburger), a silly dance group (Boogie Storm), an entertainer (Hans), a shadow dance group (Silhouettes), an acrobatic act (Sandou Trio Russian Bar), a child singer (Angelina Jordan), a violinist (Tyler Butler-Figueroa), a trapeze act (Duo Transcend) and a danger dance group (V.Unbeatable).
