Bumalik sa Pilipinas si Vanness Wu, isa sa miyembro ng phenomenal Taiwanese boy group na F4, para sa launch ng women's denim collection ng isang sikat na jeans brand.
Kita sa mukha ni Vanness ang excitement na nakabalik siya sa Pilipinas.
“It is such an amazing time so far and a loftof memories coming back,” bungad ng Taiwanese singer-actor sa Levi's Women's Denim Collection for Fall 2015, na ginanap nitong Biyernes ng gabi, July 31, sa Valkyrie Club, Taguig City.
Patuloy ni Vanness, “The last time I was here, I believe was 2004, and I just want to take this moment and thank Levi's for inviting me.”
Isa si Vanness sa apat na judges ng pinakaunang Asia's Got Talent (AGT), na tumakbo mula March hanggang May ng taong kasalukuyan.
Ang iba pang judges ay sina David Foster, Anggun, at Melanie Chisholm (ng Spice Girls).
Maraming Filipino contestants ang nakapasok sa grand finals ng nasabing reality-based talent search sa Asia; kagaya ng opera singer na si Gerphil Flores, ang dance group na Junior New System, at ang shadow-play act na El Gamma Penumbra na siyang hinirang na grand winner.
Maging si Vanness ay hangang-hanga sa talento ng mga Pinoy.
Biro pa nga niya, “Oh, my gosh! I'm scared to come and perform in the Philippines now! [They're] pretty talented.
“But then again, this place is filled, is [a] melting pot of talent.
“I just feel like more and more they're gonna get better opportunities and chances for the Filipino people to shine and I'm really excited [for them].”
Sino sa Filipino contestants sa AGT ang pinakagusto niya?
Sagot ni Vanness, “My most favorite Filipino act is Junior New System because I'm able to resonate with their upbringing.
"And their sense of dancing really helped them improve their lifestyle, and their life, how they could see where their life could be in the future.
"That's what music and that's what dancing did for me.”
Paano naman ilalarawan ang karanasan niya bilang judge ng AGT?
“It's one experience that I will cherish, the memories forever and very grateful for.
“It's great fun working with the other judges—David, Melanie Chisholm, and Anggun.
"They're all such wonderful people and the talent... every time you see people come out, we're blown away, and see what's next and see what's next.”
Sinabi ni Vanness na may pag-uusap na para sa Season 2 ng Asia's Got Talent, at sana raw ay maging isa pa rin siya sa mga judge nito.
