Wasn't it just last year that I got obsessed with American Idol because of Thia Megia? I think I watched all her youtube videos in my spare time! And now it feels like deja vu. Another 16 year-old pinoy made it through to the top 24 and I think she did an absolutely flawless performance of "The Prayer". Before this last crucial performance, the only airtime she got was during their group performance in Vegas - she suddenly popped out of nowhere and gave a standing O performance. Pinoy talaga. Gave me a sense of pride... and goosebumps.
It will be interesting watching this show during these cold, stressful winter months and follow Jessica all the way (fingers crossed) to the top. Great distraction. I can't wait for next week.
