Another Fil-Brit wows Simon, YouTube

Like Madonna Decena and Charlie Green before her, 11-year-old Filipino-British Arisxandra Libantino wowed the judges of the reality show “Britain’s Got Talent” on its first week this season.

Libantino, who sang Jennifer Hudson’s “One Night Only,” made the usually cantankerous Simon Cowell rise to his feet, along with his fellow jurors.

After the pint-sized belter’s performance, Cowell exclaimed: “OMG! You’re superhuman.


One of the best auditions we’ve had so far. Brilliant.” Not only Cowell was impressed.

Libantino’s video has scored 2,111,400 hits on YouTube at press time. Bayani San Diego Jr.
