Marcelito Pomoy may not have ended his run on America’s Got Talent: The Champions the way he wanted, but he still has plenty to be thankful for. From learnings to exposure, Marcelito remains grateful for the experience.
Speaking to ABS-CBN‘s MJ Felipe, Marcelito talked about how his disappointment made way for excitement at the new prospects in his career.
“Kung anuman ang tinadhana sa akin, siyempre kailangan mo tanggapin,” Marcelito started. “Kahit sino namang contestant, ‘pag tinawag kang third place or fourth place, siyempre nakakasama rin ng loob. Sa akin, okay lang, kasi siyempre, malaking [advantage] sa akin kasi nakilala ako all over the world.”
[Whatever is meant to happen, of course, you have to accept it. Whoever the contestant may be, it will hurt to be named 3rd or 4th place. For me, it’s okay because it was still a big advantage to become known all over the world.]
Although he did not receive a prize as runner-up, Marcelito believes he was given other advantages.
“Sa ngayon kasi, kahit third place ako, makatungtong ka lang sa ‘America’s Got Talent,’ malaking factor na sa ‘yo ‘yan, e, kasi all over the world ang nakakakilala sa ‘yo. Noong audition ko pa lang, ang daming nag-inquire sa aking puro international, kaya ang saya ko na,” he explained.
[Even though I finished third, it is a big factor to have been part of America’s Got Talent since you’ll be known all over the world. At even just the auditions there were already so many inquiries that were international, which is why I’m already so happy.]
In fact, Marcelito is already scheduled to perform across the globe. He will have appearances in Japan, Indonesia, Canada, Australia, and the US in 2020.
As for other international opportunities? “Madami, sobra!” Marcelito says.
