KC defends Charice's selection as ‘X Factor’ judge

MANILA, Philippines - KC Concepcion, host of the Philippine franchise of reality show "The X Factor," believes that international singing sensation Charice deserves to sit as judge on the show.



Apparently, certain quarters have been questioning Charice's merits in comparison with the other 'X Factor' judges, veteran OPM singers Martin Nievera and Gary Valenciano.



Concepcion backed the young singer, saying that with her experience in the international music scene, Charice can impart great knowledge to the contestants.



"Well, Charice naman had experienced things na hindi naman na experience ng marami dito sa Philippine showbiz," Concepcion was quoted as saying in a report by Push posted on April 25.



The host reminded critics that Charice had to outshine tougher and more established competition in carving a place in the international scene.



"Siyempre ibang level din 'yung competition na hinaharap niya everyday ng career niya kasi hindi rin basta-basta ang nakaka-perform siya doon... so kahit papaano sa tingin ko, meron din naman siyang pwedeng ibahagi sa atin na baka hindi natin alam na napagdaanan niya, natutunan niya," Concepcion pointed out.

Concepcion chastised critics who write off the 20-year-old singer as inexperienced.



"It's easy kasi to judge someone na wala tayo don sa pwesto niya," she reasoned. But the truth is, she said, "the international scene is also hard like Philippine showbiz."



"So baka may iba ring nangyayari na hindi natin alam na naituro at nakatulong kay Charice," Concepcion maintained.



Meanwhile, the host revealed that they've recently concluded auditions for the talent-search show that's set to air in June.



"Umikot talaga kami (nationwide) we're very excited to see them na haharapin na talaga [ang competition]," said she.
