MANILA – Former “The Voice of the Philippines” contestant Dave Lamar has auditioned on the hit international talent show “American Idol.”
In his Twitter account on Tuesday, the 23-year-old singer shared a photo of him during his “Idol” audition to prove that he indeed joined the American singing contest.
“Guys! I swear this isn’t PhotoShopped! tell your friends, family, dogs and cats! Hit that RT and spread the love,” he said in the tweet.
The photo shows him playing a guitar with the blue “American Idol” backdrop.
While he did not reveal what he performed before judges Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr. and Jennifer Lopez, it caught the attention of a lot of Twitter users including “The Voice of the Philippines” coach Lea Salonga.
Aside from retweeting Lamar’s post, Salonga also sent the Filipino singer a message. She wrote, unedited: “IKAW NA!!!!!!!!! Ipapalaganap ko ito sa buong mundo!!!!!!! Wow!!!!!”
Originally from Sariaya, Quezon, Lamar first joined “The Voice of the Philippines” in 2013. He was on the team of Sarah Geronimo but he got eliminated during the battle rounds.
It remains to be seen whether Urban, Connick and Lopez gave him a golden ticket which will send him through the next round of the competition.
His “Idol” audition, which took place in San Francisco, California, will supposedly air this week.
