Filipina music icon Pops Fernandez finally expressed her side regarding the controversial elimination of TNT Boys from “The World’s Best.”
KAMI learned that the Pinay celebrity was tapped to become one of the judges in the said international talent competition.
Pops voted for Mackie Empuerto, Keifer Sanchez, and Francis Concepcion of the TNT Boys but it was not enough to give them a slot in the finals.
After the controversial loss to “Naturally 7,” the actress admitted that she wanted the singing trio to advance to the finale.
She also believed that most of the judges in the contest were betting for the TNT Boys but they suddenly changed their decisions.
“I expected them to go all the way to the finals. I think the ‘Wall of the World’ also wanted them to be in the finals but somehow along the way, they changed their minds.
“Sometimes, things happen. But I am still very proud of them. I think they gave a good fight and I told a lot of people that we should never be disappointed…
“They have gone a long way and they were very much recognized for their talents… In every contest, there is only one winner. We shouldn’t feel bad…” Pops quipped.
Here is the video of the interview:
In a previous article by KAMI, a Nigerian judge in “The World’s Best” got criticized heavily for her basis on not voting for the TNT Boys.
Pops Fernandez, or Maria Cielito Lukban Fernandez in real life, is considered as one of the most popular celebrities in the Philippines.
She also became a judge in several talent searches in the country such as “Born to Be a Star” and “Are You The Next Big Star?”
