American Idol Season 10 is getting more exciting for Noypi viewers since 2 of our "kababayans" made it to the Top 24!
Clint Jun Gamboa, a 26 year-old karaoke bar host, and Thia Megia, a 15 year-old student, have both proven that they have the potential of becoming the next American Idol. They have been selected as 2 of the 24 finalists of the show who will perform live next week.
Clint Jun Gamboa is from Long Beach, California. He said to have won one of the biggest karaoke contests in Southern California, 2 years in a row. He also wrote a song for the 2003 movie, "The Room".
Stigma still surrounds Clint Jun after the Jacee Badeaux incident (read here) but he has been showing that he got what it takes to be the next Idol. Noone can't deny that he got a powerful voice.
Mountain House, California resident Thia Megia previously joined "America's Got Talent" where she was a quarterfinalist. She also appeared on The Filipino Channel (TFC) after the talent competition. She started writing her own songs as early as 6 years old.
Thia's American Idol journey has been flawless so far. The judges seem to like the amazing talent of the teenager.
Although I find it annoying sometimes since some are exaggerating when they use it, but Clint and Thia are truly Filipino Pride. I wish them all the luck in the world since they already got the talent. :D
