Watch: Filipino transgender trio wows Asia’s Got Talent judges
“I did not see that coming.”
That was the reaction of Asia’s Got Talent judge Anggun after the Filipino transgender trio Miss Tres performed during the third week of auditions in the said reality TV show recently.
The group, known for their pretty faces yet having masculine singing voices, received a standing ovation from the audience for their unique act that wowed the judges.
Miss Tres, composed of Mariko, Angel and Mia, performed Tom Jones’ hit song “Sex Bomb” during their audition.
“With your outfit and the voice, you really got our attention,” Anggun said.
They also revealed their real birth names to the judges.
The trio got four “yes” from the judges, allowing them to join the next round of the competition.
Miss Tres also joined the season 4 of Pilipinas Got Talent in 2013. They were able to compete until the show’s quarter finals.
Aside from Miss Tres, three other Filipino acts were able to proceed to the next round of Asia’s Got Talent: nine-year-old singer Angelico Claridad, 11-year-old performer Fitri Cerado, and dance group D’ Intensity Breakers. AJH
