In the semifinals, Marcelito Pomoy showed off his vocal range anew, performing the Andrea Bocelli classic “Time to Say Goodbye” as a duet, singing both the male and female parts.

He earned a standing ovation from judges Howie Mandel, Alesha Dixon, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell.

“I gotta say that I believe that you have the best shot of winning this whole thing. This is the semifinals and you raised your game. The woman in you was just as good as she was the last time. But you as a man, you went up a notch. She tried to stay up with you but she couldn’t,” Howie Mandel said.

Dixon, for her part, said Marcelito made an absolutely brilliant song choice.

“It really enabled you to shine. I just love everything about you Marcelito. That was a fabulous performance, well done,” she said.

Klum, meanwhile, declared that she’s been waiting for Pomoy to take the stage because he is her favorite.

As for Cowell, he challenged the Filipino singer to “take a bigger risk because the surprise is now over.”

Nonetheless, he believes that with his gift, Pomoy has a massive career waiting for him after the competition.

Aside from Pomoy, also advancing to the finals were Hans, Tyler Butler-Figueroa, Alexa Lauenburger, Sandou Trio Russian Bar and Duo Transcend.

Marcelito rose to fame in his home country of the Philippines after winning the second season of “Pilipinas Got Talent” in 2011.

He was first recognized abroad for his “golden female voice” when he appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2018.
