Filipino community must be taking pride once more for another Pinay singing talent gets through a tough X Factor Top 5 in Australia.
14-year old Marlisa Punzalan received a standing ovation from her coach Ronan Keating while other coaches, Redfoo and Natalie Bassingthwaighte were left impressed.
Though youngest among the contestants, Punzalan proved why she still deserves to be on the show with Dani Im’s “Super Love”.
Though she was told to be doing good on the big notes and taking risks, judge Dannii Minogue told Punzalan to watch her “runs”. Coach Ronan immediately defended his talent that her runs were amazing.
Punzalan was called second after Caitlyn Shadbolt, making it to the top 5.
