The world deserves to see the world-class brilliance and creativity that Filipino artists can bring to the table. No doubt, this objective has been accomplished by KZ Tandingan in her stint in “The Singer 2018.” Chinese audiences have been put under a spell by her unique vocals ever since she stepped on the stage.
KZ Tandingan’s appearance in the singing competition not only opened doors for the country but also for her. She got a rare chance to meet one of her idols, UK singer Jessie J, and also defeated her competitors in one episode.
Unfortunately, it was time to say goodbye as KZ got eliminated last week. She was brought on the show last March 23 to give her farewell performance and let us just say, KZ went out with a bang. The Filipina singer surprised us all when she rapped and sang the Charlie Puth hit single “See You Again” in Mandarin!
KZ is known to always up the ante when it comes to her performances and this was truly well-received by the audience who gave her a standing ovation.
Some Filipino fans are unquestionably sad or even upset about the results. But PUSH reported that KZ will be back in the show for a “Breakout” episode and a wildcard episode that can very well put her back in the competition’s grand finals. This has already be confirmed by Cornerstone Entertainment who is handling the singer’s career.
For now, we commend KZ for an impressive run and we hope that more international viewers will appreciate the talent that only a Filipino can bring.
