Marcelito Pomoy is once again about to give America his masterful “doble kara” singing style, and the United States better be ready.

The “Pilipinas Got Talent” Season 2 grand winner asked for his fans’ support and prayers as he revealed that he would be competing with fellow champions from around the world on “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” season 2, as posted on his Instagram yesterday, Nov. 20.


“Guys… this is it… eto na ‘yong pagkakataong hinihintay ko.. so please abangan nyo po ako.. America’s Got Talent—THE CHAMPIONS Edition,” he said. “Sobrang hirap na laban dahil puro champions ng iba’t ibang bansa ang makakalaban ko.. hindi eto ‘yong ordinary season lang ng Got Talent.. these are got talent champions of the world competing with each others (sic).”


(Guys, this is it. This is what I have been waiting for, so please watch out for me. America’s Got Talent — THE CHAMPIONS Edition. This would be very hard as I will be competing with champions from different countries. This is not an ordinary Got Talent season anymore. These are Got Talent champions of the world competing with one another.)

“Piling pili po ang nakakalaban dito.. kung kaya sa tulong at suporta ninyo lalo’t higit sa inyong dasal nawa’y tayo ay makapagperform hanggang sa huli,” he added.

(My competitors were meticulously picked to join here. Through your help and support, especially your prayers, I hope we will be able to perform until the end.)

Pomoy is famously known for being able to smoothly switch between tenor and soprano voices, allowing him to solely perform female and male “duets.”

“Actually kahit sa audition round lang masaya na akong maibahagi ang aking talento sa buong mundo.. pero kung papalarin na makaabot sa grand finals mas masaya syempre… please pray for me,” he requested.


(Actually, I would already be happy to perform even only in the audition round and share my talent with the whole world. But if I would be fortunate enough to reach the grand finals, I would be much happier, of course. Please pray for me.)

Pomoy had his big break from winning “Pilipinas Got Talent” in 2011.  But before that, he said he had been living in the streets since he was 7 years old, earning P50 a day from being a pin boy at a bowling alley to get through the day.

Pomoy is set to compete in “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” season 2 on Jan. 6, 2020, which will air on NBC.  /ra
