“I couldn't stop smiling watching this. @D_laurel, you made me so proud!” Lea expressed on her Twitter account (@MsLeaSalonga) moments after Denise’s performance.
“Yes, @GaryValenciano1, I'm in NY,” Lea added as one of the judges Gary Valenciano, addressed her on the show to say that Denise has convinced them that they were watching the real Lea Salonga on the “Your Face Sounds” Familiar” stage.
“If I knew how to reach her, even if she’s flying to wherever she’s going, sasabihan ko talaga, ‘Lea, you need to see her,’” said Gary. “She convinced us dito sa 'Your Face Sounds Familiar' that we were watching Lea Salonga.’”
Meanwhile, an overwhelmed Denise expressed her appreciation over Lea's words through her Instagram account (@d_laurel).
"I never knew it could be possible for me to be speechless twice in a row.. Lol I just wanna say Thankyou@msleasalonga for tuning in!

"Giving it all I've got would just be equivalent to the talent uve got on ur right pinky finger! haha thanks for always being an inspiration! Xo to NYC!"
