Pinay, Marlisa Punzalan, 14, is the youngest contestant on X Factor Australia, who advanced to the “Home Visits.” Marliza impressed Guest Judge, John Legend, with her rendition of “I’ll Stand By You” by the Pretenders on Monday, August 4, 2014.
Marlisa recounted that she stopped for a second and committed an error but John Legend admired her still for having a superb voice at her age.
Filipino contestants, Justin and Mary Ann were eliminated earlier in the competition, while Marlisa Punzalan continues to impress and receive praises from the X Factor Australia judges.
Will Marlisa Punzalan proceed to the Live Shows of the 2014 X Factor Australia? Coach Ronan Keating seems confident that the 14-year old Pinay would win the singing competition. Ronan said, “I think you could win this for me.”
