The 35-year-old Marcelito Pomoy of Surigao del Sur earned a Finals spot on America’s Got Talent: Champions after being voted a top third pick by the AGT Superfans. Pomoy had the AGT judges praising his performance.
“I believe that you have the best shot of winning this whole thing,” shared Howie Mendel.
“Absolutely brilliant song choice! It really enabled you to shine,” Alesha Dixon said.
“Marcelito, I’ve been waiting for you all day to come on to the stage. For me, you are my favorite,” declared Heidi Klum.
“There is no denying that you have a very unique, incredible special talent,” said the show’s creator, Simon Cowell who went on to challenge Pomoy to take a risk when he does get into the finals of the show.
“But I do believe that with a gift live you’ve got, you’ve got a massive career in front of you. You really, really do,” Cowell encouraged the Filipino singer.
In the preliminary show, Marcelito Pomoy stunned the judges and audience of the AGT stage with his unique solo performance of “The Prayer”, a duet by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli, that sent him off to the semis with the Superfans votes.
In America’s Got Talent: The Champions, voting is not open to the public. Advancing talent from each round is determined by the judge panel (Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Alesha Dixon and Howie Mandel) along with a select group of “superfans” who represent the 50 states of America.
Marcelito Pomoy won Pilipinas Got Talent in 2011 where he also sang The Prayer. Since winning Got Talent, Pomoy has been part of the local television variety show “ASAP” and released recordings. In 2018, Pomoy was flown to the United States by American TV host Ellen DeGeneres who was amazed after seeing his video singing a live duet of both male and female voices.
Pomoy is one of the best 40 acts on the Got Talent franchise around the world that were flown to the U.S. for the show to compete against the best of the best.
Next Tuesday, February 11 morning (Philippine time), Marcelito Pomoy will be one of the 6 acts competing against the 4 Golden Buzzer recipients for the ultimate title of America’s Got Talent World Champion.
