    Did Simon Cowell actually pick Marcelito Pomoy’s ‘predictable’ song for AGT finals?

    “You are a very nice, very talented guy, I gotta tell you. You really, really are – and this is even better than the last performance you did. Much, much better! However, if it was my choice, on a night like this, I would have done something less predictable,” Simon started.

    “How was that predictable?” a flabbergasted Alesha interrupted before asking again, “How was that predictable???”

    “The songs he’s chosen. The very safe, the kind of, you know… I get it they are popular songs but I just think that tonight if he had done something out of his comfort zone, like a shock to everybody. Like “My God he’s chosen this song!” That would have given you another moment because I think you’ve got a massive career in front of you. I really, really do!” Simon explained.

    “Guys, meron akong magandang balita sa inyo na meron nang napiling kanta, guys. Pero sila ang pumili nun, hindi po ako. Pero kung sa tingin ni Simon ay ito ang nababagay sa akin, well, wala na akong magagawa dun kasi yun ang napili niya, eh,” Marcelito told fans in a vlog.

    Kung yung mga musician nga ay hindi sila puedeng sumuway dun kay Simon. For me, hindi talaga siya pang-contest.

    According to a post on Twitter by user @qilb3rt, the video was later taken down by Marcelito in response to the request from the production team. Everyone calls for justice for Marcelito.

    “A singer is an artist plain and simple and to restrict an artist by choosing the song they are not comfortable with is like telling Monet to paint a blank canvas with only one color and tone. Then criticize his work for being unimaginative and monotonous! This is outrageous,” one netizen wrote.

    “Simon Cowell did it again. He chose Marcelito Pomoy’s song and had the audacity to react negatively. A clear sabotage. Why am I not surprised? #AGTChampions,” another commented.

    Others commented that the show is simply using Marcelito for views and money, but wouldn’t let him win because he’s not an American.

    “It's America's Got Talent. @SimonCowell please include in the criteria of your show, that's only American's are allowed.#AGTsucks,” another angry fan commented.

    “Clearly using pinoys for views and money period,” one agreed.
