Awesome Osang rocks X Factor Philippines
Honestly, when he came out (unintended pun, I assure you!) I was expecting some Diana Ross or Donna Summer number. You know, the stereotypical drag fare. Then BAM, Osang belted out a rockin’ heavy metal screamer…and all our jaws hit the floor. After the judges heaped praised, the crowed clamored for another song, the Shaggy classic you saw in the video (and I love Bombastic).
Seriously, the two songs from the dude who looks like a lady (that’s an intended Aerosmith pun) had more testosterone and more swag than all the other male performances put together. It’s nuts!
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’d probably know my views and you’d deduce my stand when it comes to the gay issues and all that. But, that still won’t make me stop praising talent when I see it, and I definitely saw it in Jeffrey “Osang” Soliven. He’s definitely one of my favorites, if not THE favorite, among the many great performers I’ve seen in X Factor Philippines so far.
Were you as fooled, and as blown away as I was?
