Marcelito Pomoy got sick during the semi-finals of the prestigious NBC competition, “America’s Got Talent.”
However, there were some netizens who doubted the news when it came out, saying that the singer was just making excuses for not getting the top prize.
KAMI learned that Marcelito’s wife, Joan Pomoy, expressed her reaction towards the accusation.
In an interview with PUSH, Joan said that Marcelito truly got ill during the semi-finals of the competition.
She added that there was no reason for them to make up that story because Marcelito was able to get to the finals despite the sickness.
“Ang dami naming naharap na challenges with this contest. Alam mo naman behind-the-scenes ang daming nangyayari—‘yung sakit na naramdaman niya which is totoo naman ‘yun. Sabi ko nga kung ipapakita ko lang lahat lahat ng conversations namin with AGT staff, kung puwede ko lang irelease lahat, gagawin ko.
“Kasi ang daming nagda-doubt kung totoo daw ba na nagkasakit siya. Kasi ‘yung iba ‘yung issue nila baka issue lang daw kasi natalo na.
“Hindi kami gagawa nang ganu’ng story. Plus, the fact na hindi naman siya natalo du’n sa part ng semi-finals. Nakapasok pa nga siya ‘di ba? So why we would make a story like that?” Joan told PUSH.
Despite losing in the finals, Marcelito told MJ Felipe of ABS-CBN News that he has been getting offers to perform in different countries because of his AGT performances.
His star also became brighter in the Philippines, with a video of Senator Manny Pacquiao trying to imitate Marcelito’s voice went viral during the competition.
KAMI previously reported that Marcelito did not receive any cash prize from “America’s Got Talent.”
Marcelito Pomoy is a well-known singer in the Philippines. He is prominent for having beautiful tenor and soprano voices. Marcelito became famous after winning “Pilipinas Got Talent” and placing fourth on “America’s Got Talent.”
