Gerphil Flores from Pilipinas Got Talent to Asia’s Got Talent ‘Golden Girl’

Gelphil Flores, also known for her impressive singing talent, has joined another television competition in the Philippines before Asia’s Got Talent.


In 2010, she was introduced as Fame Flores when she auditioned for ‘Pilipinas Got Talent‘ hosted by Luis Manzano and Billy Crawford with judges Kris Aquino, Ai-Ai delas Alas and Freddie M. Garcia.

The 19-year-old operatic singer impressed the three judges and allowed her to move on the next round. However, during the semi-finals, she was pitted against Sherwin Baguion who eventually moved on the next round.

Freddie M. Garcia was disappointed with Sherwin Baguion so he gave his vote to Fame. But Kris and Ai-Ai gave their votes to Sherwin. Kris pointed out, “I’ve always said this – in order to win your audience, you need to sing songs that your audience can identify with. You definitely have the talent, Fame.”

“You have a beautiful face and a beautiful voice. Mag-aartista ka rin, alam namin. Pero sana kantahin mo rin ang age-appropriate because you’re 19. Sana yung mga kanta ni Charice,” she added.

Five years later, Fame became Gerphil when she auditioned for ‘Asia’s Got Talent.’ She consistently received positive feedback from the four judges of AGT.

Last week, her rendition of ‘Impossible Dream’ gave her a standing ovation from the judges and audience of the show. Her amazing rendition prompted Grammy-winning composer David Foster to announce: “I promise you, the world is going to know about you.”

“The song is titled ‘The Impossible Dream’ but tonight, you just made the dream possible. You absolutely nailed it,” he added.

Melanie C said, “You were magnificent. You heard the reaction in here tonight. To see the transformation you’ve made since the auditions, it’s an absolute pleasure. Congratulations to you.”

Vaness Wu could not believed to see her transformation, “Who are you? When we first saw you, you were a shy, little girl, and you commanded the stage tonight. You literally took over and just said, ‘Everybody, look at me, look what I can do.’ Great job!”

Indonesian rock icon Anggun praised her by saying. “That performance is exactly what we expected from you. You’re already a beautiful girl but tonight, you were magnificent.”
