Last night I was watching TV and Madonna Decena, a Britain's Got Talent semi-finalist was featured. She is an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) in UK. This morning I saw her YouTube video, she was amazing. She sang Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" beautifully and effortlessly. The audience gave her standing ovation. The judges were touched when she told them the reason she joined the contest-- she wants to be with her kids. This is one of the sacrifices an OFW has to take -- to be away from their families. I hope she reach the finals.

I'm sure Ramiele's fans were very very sad when she was eliminated last night in American Idol. In one of her interviews, she said she had a feeling that she will be out of the competition. I also had that feeling because for past weeks she never found her niche (again). Her unforgettable performance was when she sang "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me". From then on, judges expected a lot from her and she was not able to please them. I think one of the reasons was she struggled with the theme/genre assigned every week. The only consolation for the fans is that Ramiele will join the Top 9 for the national tour. Ramiele has a very good voice. I hope she visits the Philippines and realize how she is admired by the Filipinos. Ramiele, continue to pursue your dreams. Good riddance.
