Marcelito Pomoy is officially one of the grand finalists of "America's Got Talent: The Champions!"
Just this Tuesday, February 4 (February 3 in U.S. time), Marcelito is now among the 10 finalists of the talent search after capturing everyone with his outstanding performance of the Andrea Bocelli classic “Time to Say Goodbye.”
Marcelito received a standing ovation from the judges Howie Mandel, Alesha Dixon, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell, as well as the audience.
“I gotta say that I believe that you have the best shot of winning this whole thing. This is the semifinals and you raised your game. The woman in you was just as good as she was the last time. But you as a man, you went up a notch. She tried to stay up with you but she couldn’t,” Howie said.
The Filipino singer will now compete against Hans, Tyler Butler-Figueroa, Alexa Lauenburger, Sandou Trio Russian Bar, Duo Transcend, Angelina Jordan, Boogie Storm, V. Unbeatable, and Silhouettes in the grand finals next week.

Prior to joining “America’s Got Talent,” Marcelito first rose to fame after winning the second season of “Pilipinas Got Talent” in 2011.
