Forgettable, says Idol’s Cowell on Ramiele Malubay’s latest performance.
I haven’t taken the time to look but feel reasonably certain a tour of the Filipino blogs would show a near cult-like following for American Idol’s “littlest star.”
In short, no pun intended, Ramiele has a beautiful voice, cute personality, but is far from becoming a star in the U.S. I suspect she has garnered a lot of support from the Filipino community in the states, not to mention an “official” fan site, and is the sole reason she’s made it into the final nine.
In the end Ramiele will more than likely make the Final 10 Tour of American Idol and disappear from the American music scene. Her hope for stardom leads down the same path taken by Jasmin Trias and Camile Velasco, in the Philippines.
