Yet another Filipino-born makes it on a US reality Show

The American Idol hit a phenomenal high here in the Phil when 2 filipinas, Jasmine Trias and Camille Velasco made it to the finals a couple of seasons back. Last season though it was unfortunate that former “Smokey Mountain” member, Sharon Galvez, was unlucky to be in a group of rejects from the AI eliminations despite her potential. In RockStar:INXS, Mark Burnet’s latest Reality Show under CBS, discovered another Filipino born talent, but as usual, they did not grow up here. Mig Ayesa, an Australian National is currently competing against 8 others who are left from the original 15 contestants of this reality based rock show. The show’s winner will become the frontman /woman for the band INXS.

I haven’t had a chance to see an episode yet but you could catch their performances on rockstar.msn.com. As usual, as Filipino’s are, who are obviously a proud race, a lot would supporrt him knowing his roots are, as with the case of the later. It could also be the reason why he’s still hanging on there. A lot have criticized Trias for her high pitched often glass-breaking voice which seems to be out of control, yet she held on to the final 3. But seeing Mig’s performances, he’s OK but I’m not a fan of his song choice though. Anyways if he does make it to the finals and get eliminated, he could always drop by our country and make a career here. Commercials even! Hehehe!
