Dianne Kaye Jacob Ico is the latest in the long line of talented Filipinos making a name abroad. Ico, a 14 year old girl living in Spain, impressed the judges of Got Talent España that she received a golden buzzer. This means that she would go straight to the semi-finals.
Ico sang “Memory,” a song from the musical Cats.
It was judge Jorge Javier Vázquez, a TV presenter, who pressed the golden buzzer. His co-judges Eva Hache and Edurne agreed that Ico gave a good performance, but the fourth judge, Jesus Vázquez, noted that also she sang off-key. Edurne came to her defense, saying that it was a difficult song to sing.
Ico is a pure-blooded Filipino who was born and raised in Barcelona. Her parents are from Ilocos and Dagupan.
