Filipina immigrant worker Rose “Osang” Fontanes has once again pulled off a stellar performance on the first live show of “X Factor Israel” Thursday morning (Manila time).

The Tel Aviv-based caregiver received applause and standing ovation from awed judges and cheering audience for her rendition of the Christina Aguillera hit song “Beautiful.”

Judge Moshe Peretz deemed Fontanes’ performance “perfect,” which was echoed by her mentor Shiri Maimon.

“You are beautiful. I love you,” said Israeli rock singer Rami Fortis.

Meanwhile, pop star Ivri Lider asserted Fontanes’ performance is ideal for the final round.

“You are probably the best singer in the competition. But Shiri, there’s a problem; you just wasted your final song for the finals. It’s a perfect, perfect song,” said he.

“Rose, you always make me cry,” added host Bar Refaeli on her spiel.

Having earned high votes from the viewers, Fontanes, who’s one of the favorite contenders, is on her way for the next round as she enters the Top 11.

In a 15-second video posted on the Instagram account of “X Factor Israel,” the 46-year-old Filipina expressed her gratitude for her both Israeli and Filipino supporters.

“(To all the) Israeli and Filipinos, thank you for all the support that you gave me. Thank you so much. I love you all,” she gushed.
