It was just revealed that Gary Valenciano will be the 3rd mentor / judge on X Factor Philippines.
Joining Charice and Martin Nievera, the singer was excited to be a part of the reality / talent competition. Hosted by KC Concepcion, X Factor is the next reality / talent competition to be launched in the Philippines.
“I’m flattered talaga na pinili ako bilang isa sa mga judges. X Factor kasi iba din yon. Yung X factor na yon, kaya siya X di mo masasabi kung sino ang may X na yon. Maaaring sasabin ng tao what does the X stand for? We don’t know but it’s all going to be seen. It’s going to be experienced and interpreted in the contestant’s own way and the judges will see that. Yung tipong di ko alam pero ang galing noon, yun ang x-factor.”
“They chose the right judges. You even have Charice. Some people say: ‘What? Charice?’ But Charice is international. Isnt’ that what every artist want to be – international?”
“I will be looking at everything because it’s not just the talent, because a person can have a lot of talent but if that person doesn’t have a right character that person comes and goes. Especially now, nandiyan na yung Twitter at Facebook you can know the artist in a very personal way. So it’s not just the talent that I will look at and I will be very firm,”
Auditions for the competition is still ongoing.
