As expected, the pilot episode of X Factor Philippines was a major buzz on social media, or another term for that if you like, the overused “trending” and I did not bother to find out if it was worldwide or nationwide.
Anyway, most of the social media posts were about praises of how the auditionees and the judges faired.
But the spotlight was unexpectedly on Charice.
Netizens react that the international singer was over acting. She was seen crying after being moved by a contestant named Modesto who Charice thought reminded of her late father.
Earlier in the episode Charice jumped off from the judges platform and approached a female singer to confirm her yes. Netizens did not like this.
Some even commented that X Factor went like an MMK for Charice.
