JAMES REID Reacts To Mixed Response To ‘Idol Philippines’ Judges
When the Search for the Idol Philippines recently unveiled the identities of the judges who will join Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, some netizens questioned the inclusion of Vice Ganda, Moira dela Torre, and James Reid.
The Palm Dreamssinger addressed the mixed reactions in an interview with ABS-CBN News, saying "They got me for a reason."
The multi-hyphenated artist, who has his own label Careless Music Manila, claimed: "I made it in my own area, my own field in the showbiz industry... and they see talent in me."
Meanwhile, Idol Philippines host Billy Crawford jumped to James and the other judges' defense. "Full support ako sa lahat ng judges... Ang pinaka-importante dito is, guys, you have to be proud of our own talent."
There's still no word on when the talent competition airs on ABS-CBN. Until then, you can catch James and Billy with Sam Concepcion in The Crewconcert on April 5 at the Araneta Coliseum.
