KZ & Jessie
KZ Tandingan (right), who shot to fame when she won 2012, met her idol Jessie J, a British pop and rhythm and blues singer. The happy moment for KZ happened on the set of the reality singing competition, which aired on Hunan Television in China.
The Filipina singer was there for the show’s Episode 5 as guest performer. But with the audience going wild over her performance of the internationally famous Adele’s hit, “Rolling in the Deep,” KZ was instantly included in the list of competitors. (By competition rules, her performance had served as her entry.) KZ ended up taking the top spot in that episode! She won even over her idol Jessie J in judging done by live voting by the studio audience.
At press time, KZ had just competed in Episode 6, where she landed in the top six, allowing her to compete in the next episodes. The final showdown is set for April 2018. This early, for us it’s: Go KZ!!!
