It was obvious that one of the judges, Mr. Marius Moga, was charmed instantly by the melodramatic voice of the female auditionee. The moment he heard her voice, his expression showed recognition and so he turned his chair first.
At the peak of the performance, judges became anxious and got out of their seats. Mr. Moga turned Mr. Smiley’s chair, while Ms. Loredana Groza and Mr. Tudor Chirila had exchange of favors of turning each other’s chairs.
When the performance was over, the curtain was drawn up revealing the overjoyed 28-year old vocal soloist from the Philippines, Rose Marie Velasquez.
