KZ Tandigan of X Factor Philippines

The one thing I like about reality talent search is that it gives us all a chance to witness real talent.  I’ll be honest… I don’t really get to watch alot of TV shows lately but when I saw this last night my eyes was really glued!  Where in the world was this girl hiding and why haven’t she gotten a break yet?

KZ Tandingan, 20, from Davao del Sur wowed the crowd and the celebrity judges with her unique rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. The crowd went wild with her first performance and they asked for more (even the judges did!). The young auditionee wowed the audience and to my surprise started rapping in the middle of her second song Ready or Not.

When asked why she joined X Factor she said she wanted to prove to everyone that the Philippine music industry is not only for those who are “maganda, makinis ang balat, matangkad at biritero’t biritera. (beautiful, with smooth / clear skin, tall, and belters) ”   She revealed that she had a problem with her voice that made her change her style. Looks like it help her re-discover herself and find a genre of her own.  The four star-judges even volunteered to take the backseat in KZ’s future concert proving that the girl is incredibly talented.

In case you missed it, watch this:

    This girl from Digos, Davao has everything to be an international singer. I will wait until his fans in you tube reach 5 million. When I hear Charice in the United States, I said to myself, the star is born. I was shock, another star was discovered and I will follow all het song in X-Factor Philippines. .

    Bakit naman binago ang image at isinunod na naman sa pilit inaakala ng mga celebrity sa Pinas na stereotyped thinking nila na ‘beauty’. She is so beautiful in that photo but her singing, personality and music is not suitable to that straight hair type na nakakasawa na at puro na lang ganyan style ng mga celebrities. The masses loved her kasi nakakarelate ang marami…her looks sa audition is raw and sincere and so beautiful with that gorgeous hair she had sa audition. wag naman sana gawin fake din looks time
    To show kahit ano style at looks maganda. She is so good so refreshing !

      I guess when the photo was taken she wasn’t still sure about herself. We all go through that stage where we want to fit in but I guess after watching her audition video she proved to everyone that she doesn’t have to pretend to be someone she’s not 🙂

    Kzz’s beauty may be to others is exotic, but see the improvement, I just don’t know why x-factor did not categorize and separate age bracket for judges . She may not appreciate KZ’s song/ performance last Saturday but the other guy was well appreciated by her (oh, i don’t know why she did it). Maybe because of generation gap. I did not watch the Sunday elimination for fear of losing you so early in the x=factor show. Good, you answer them rightly. Pls. be proud of your rubber shoes and your attire last Saturday, don’t mind her comments. Go go go go
