Jay-R takes pride in the fact that his impersonation gained the attention of Alice Cooper.
"I feel very proud that the Godfather of Shock Rock made a comment about the performance," he said during an interview aired during the April 15 episode of Aquino & Abunda Tonight.
"Kasi iniisip ko din that if he didn't like it baka negative pa 'yung masabi, pero at least, walang negative na lumabas. I'm very happy."

The R&B singer won during the pilot episode for impersonating Pepe Smith and last April 5 for bringing life to Kenny Rogers.
