I was able to watch last night's episode of X Factor Philippines and I was amazed at how much talent the show has. They showed last night the final stages of choosing the top 20 acts (5 for girls, 5 for boys, 5 for over 25, and 5 for groups). The judges namely Gary V., Martin Nievera, Charice and Pilita Corrales really had a hard time choosing. The contestants I would say are even better than their counterparts in Simon Cowell's X Factor USA. But I'm rooting for KZ Tandingan to win. She has that distinct voice and has a charming personality to match.
I'm sure X Factor Philippines will be even more exciting now that the contest proper has already begun. I will definitely watch every week until the first X Factor Philippines winner is announced.
