Male Philippines Singer Delivers Stunning Rendition Of Beyonce’s ‘Listen’

Published: Monday 6th Dec 2010 by Trent

Now here is something you don’t see everyday! On the Philippines version of ‘American Idol’ a 22 year old male contestant hit the stage to perform a breathtaking rendition of Beyonce’s ‘Listen’. Check out the footage above.

That was absolutely incredible! Even lying on his back for the song’s climax he was belting and singing for dear life, making most of the singers in the game today seem utterly mediocre. I am completely floored!

Thoughts?

    he?

  3. MissImpartial December 6, 2010

    I thought that he was a she.

  4. MUSIC LOVER December 6, 2010

    That was amazing for a guy and that is a GUY! That said, if any superstar is going to make it worldwide from the Phillipines, it’s going to be Charice Pempengco. And we all know she is struggling to capture the U.S. teen market.

    It’s too bad because someone with her voice who EASILY shits on 99% of all artists today, deserves more respect that she gets.

  22. the kiddz December 6, 2010

    @ Beyonce Owns Your Fav.

    Arnel Pineda is proof of that!

    Anyway, Bey would be PROUD of this kid. It’s people like these who are deserving of record deals, not b****** who can barely hold a note.

  32. the kiddz December 6, 2010

    @Sugarwalls

    Beyonce can belt a G5 on her back (BET Deja Vu Performance), so this would be a piece of cake.

  33. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 6, 2010

  34. Shutup December 6, 2010

  35. Robier December 6, 2010

  36. mgaskwater December 6, 2010

    That clips is actually from a popular noontime variety show in the Philippines called “Eat Bulaga!”

    Those crazy guys doing silly stuff to the person are some of the hosts of the said show. Part of the show is they go to different places and play games and peeps win prizes, they do a “bring-me game” and they get prizes.

    Normally they go to areas where the less privelege are ’cause that’s where they get more audience and more ratings for the show, though the show is a household name for more than around 2 decades now.

  37. Geronimo Deuces December 6, 2010

    cant those guys respect that boys talent…….. i mean surrounding him like that????? wtf let the boy show us his talent

  38. FUTURESTARdelux December 6, 2010

    *DEAD* at how i got these Bey stans pressed with one (true) comment X_X

    @BEYSTANBISH “Lol futurestardelux stays keeping Beys name in it’s d*** infested mouth. Why don’t you worry about your miss I f*** for track I’m a fat ass hag and my carrer stays failing . Ok alright then you a*** infested c***. *Drops mic*”

    ^ B**** get it right, unlike Beyslut i don’t suck i GET sucked, LMAO and you got XTina in your mouth i see? still it’s not suipprising a lot of Bey stans are intimidated by her superior voice and greater record sales (Beyslut – 25m, XTina – 63m) and please how can XTina f*** for tracks when Beyslut has already stole them all?! #SitYoFatSpottyMontanaFishbourneAssDownHow < LISTEEEEEEEEEEEEN to that.

  39. J December 6, 2010

    LMFAO @ the da stans “oh Beyonce would be proud” ummm NO delusional b****** Beyonce would be hella jealous! This dude did better than she can or would ever do! 🙂

  40. K2 December 6, 2010

    This song is so bland. i hate it.

  41. nayah82 December 6, 2010

    I thought it was Cassie.

  42. Blue Kid December 6, 2010

    The young man is talented, we all know who his idol is, so stop hating.

  43. Black People Stink ASs December 6, 2010

    Filipinos like him will eat your dogs.

    Third world f*****!

  44. cw December 6, 2010

    He slayed Beyonce with her own s***, lol.

  45. salz December 6, 2010

    AMAZING!!
    THAT BOY SURE DID THE SONG JUSTICE!!!

  46. VA STAND UP!! December 6, 2010

    1) He DOES NOT look 22? He looks twelve!

    2) He sounds (and looks for that matter) like a girl. #noshade

    3) He is skinny as hell!

    @ J: The ONLY delusiona B**** in here is YOU!

    #SIT

    @Bluekid: I know right! He is probably Beyonce’s biggest fan!

    I love Bey’s version but I do think this boy did it justice! He sung his ass off! Gotta give it to him with his skinny self.

    SMH @ all these lames trying to take shots at Bey! It’s obvious this dude is a a huge fan of Bey and I am sure Bey would be flattered.

  47. VA STAND UP!! December 6, 2010

    @Black People Stink ASs: You are racist ignorant and DISGUSTING! It’s pathetic how you hide behind your computer screen and say things that you would NEVER say to people’s faces.

    #dieslow

  48. Nikki December 7, 2010

    he sound better than bey

  49. Black F****** December 8, 2010

    F***** and Philippines = Disgusting and s***.

  50. ???? December 9, 2010

    WTF? This isn’t stunning it’s confusing and weird, His pitch is off and even when he’s high it’s flat. I swear between charice,this one and the fat one with the bowl cut. It’s annoying these people sound nothing like the originals and what’s sad is people have been fed so much garbage music for so long now they don’t know when to laugh rather then praise an otherwise horrible rendition

  51. Phoenyxx December 14, 2010

    #GirlBye
    That boy just SLAYED that song!
    Ugh.
    I love him.
    He better SANG that just like Beyonce!
    Go ahead. Go right ahead, boo.

  52. Aundrea Parker December 17, 2010

    A little flat, but he can still sing better than half of the bitched in the game. so yeah.

  53. Raising my eyebrows to the heavens December 20, 2010

    This is not from a talent show, this is from a Filipino ,noontime, variety show called “eat bulaga” and the hosts just discovered this talent in the streets( right from the video) , he is trully a talent and because of that he was sent to the studios and be part of the show.

  54. mannen die uggs dragen December 16, 2014
