Charice is back in a singing contest, not as contestant but as judge this time. She joins Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera and Pilita Corrales as judges in X-Factor Philippines. KC Concepcion hosts the show. X-Factor is a music competition franchise created by Simon Cowell in the United Kingdom. The winner will receive cash, other prizes and a recording contract. One of the most successful winners of the X-Factor (UK) is Leona Lewis.
Charice mentioned in some of her old interviews that she joined about 100 singing contests before Oprah and Ellen Degeneres invited her to guest in their shows. She was mentored by famous songwriter David Foster and performed with singers such as Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli. She also appeared in the musical hit TV series Glee and some TV shows in other countries. She released two international albums “Charice” and “Infinity” wherein the first album landed 8th on the Billboard 200 Chart. With these impressive achievements under her name, she is more than qualified to be a judge in X-Factor. We can expect Charice to share her honest opinions and experiences that she has had in her long singing career.
During the live auditions, Charice sang some songs to entertain the audience in between taping breaks.
