Filipina singer Resciebelle Santiago took away the breath of Romanii Au Talent judge Florin Calinescu and one of the show's host Pavel Bartos.
Both Florin and Pavel have similar comments on Resciebelle's performance of Adele's "Hello" on the June 3 grand finals airing of the Romanian talent show.
"Sabi po nung judge na mataba [Romanian actor Florin], hindi raw siya makahinga. Kailangan daw niya ng ambulance," Resciebelle told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) via Facebook messenger on June 4.
But the comments did not convince the majority of the show's viewers to vote for the 26-year-old entertainer from Cavite to bag the grand prize.
Thirteen-year-old opera singer Laura Bretan won the show's sixth-season search.
Laura got a Golden Buzzer during the show's audition round and went straight to the finals show.
Resciebelle said she and the other contestants already felt Laura will win the show even before the finals.
"Paborito po kasi siya. Saka, nakapag-America's Got Talent din siya. Naka-Golden Buzzer din. Sa August pa ang semi finals naman niya doon," Resciebelle said.
"Kahit na marami pong nagsasabi na hindi ako Romanian and I shouldn't be there, still hindi ako yung nasa huli. Thankful na rin po ako na nakarating ako sa finals nila."
Resciebelle reached 11th place among the 16 grand finalists after all the votes were counted in.
Regardless of the outcome of her Romania's Got Talent bid, Resciebelle maintains a positive outlook in life, especially after hearing the comments of the judges after her performance.
"Sabi po nila na after daw po ng show, sure sila na mas makikita pa po nila ako in the future sa industriyang ito.
"Sabi nung Andra [one of the judges and a singer herself], yung judge na babae, na yung boses ko daw po ay super strong and malinaw.
"Ano pa daw po ang di ko kaya kantahin. Kaya ko daw po kantahin Whitney [Houston], Celine [Dion], Adele... What else pa raw po. Even her [Andra's] song, I can sing," Resciebelle continued.
And making a name in Romania might happen sooner, as Resciebelle told PEP how after the show, a representative from a big record label approached her and asked for her number.
"Tatawagan daw po ako this week to have some collaboration. Interested din daw po sila to market ako sa Pilipinas."
