Rejected ‘Idol Philippines’ Contestant Now No. 2 on YouTube Philippines Chart

Tuguegarao native Luke Baylon sang his own reggae version of “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys during his audition on “Idol Philippines” but unfortunately, he only got 1 yes from the panel of Judges.

James Reid said “You have a voice and you can sing. It’s just lacking a bit with hitting the notes and the timing.”

Moira dela Torre said “May kulang e.”

Vice Ganda said “Hindi ganun kalakas ang dating sa akin e. Alam mo yun, it’s not extra special.”

Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, the only judge who gave him a ‘yes,’ said “Ako, actually, I enjoyed it. It wasn’t a very clean performance, I did like your falsetto, I didn’t care sa ‘pagkadumi’ ng performance kasi it’s reggae.”

Luke’s audition is currently trending at no. 2 of YouTube Philippines trending videos just next to ZAYN and Zhavia Ward’s “A Whole New World” MV. As of this posting, it already garnered a whopping 3.1 million views!

    In addition to my comment as I cannot let this pass I have contacted “Black Lives Matter” organization with this racist issue. I believe this is a racist issue and not just talent issue. I’m hoping Black Lives Matter will contact ABSCBN, FreeMantle Media, Cody Vidanes, and those 3 racist judges.
    My next step is to contact FreeMantle media to remove these 3 racist judges.

  2. mga bobo eh… bagay sa 3 yan ma larry gadon “parang may kulang eh” ano kulang kagwapohan? jusme..

  3. He is good actually.

  4. He has a very beautiful voice. He will come back with a great boost.

    Those 3 judges who voted NO are just simply RACIST. They judge him not in his voice or performance but with his SKIN COLOUR. You bet if that guy has same skin tone with James Reid all those 3 judges will say YES. Those judges should be replaced with more credible singers.
