International singing sensation Charice was confirmed as one of the judges of the upcoming reality singing competition The X-Factor Philippines, critics have been expressing concerns about her lack of experience.

Show host KC Concepcion recently stepped up to defended the singer , reports, saying, "Siyempre ibang level din ‘yung competition na hinaharap niya every day ng career niya kasi hindi rin basta-basta ang nakaka-perform siya doon (Of course, the level of competition she faces every day is different because it's not easy to be able to perform [internationally])."

On the show, which airs in June, Charice will be working alongside and against Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera, and a fourth judge, whose identity has yet to be announced. The judges will be tasked with not only finding talented acts who will compete to win the show and the P4 million in prizes--the largest prize ever to be given away on a TV talent search in the Philippines, according to also mentoring the acts from their assigned categories.

"Kahit papaano sa tingin ko, meron din naman siyang pwedeng ibahagi sa atin na baka hindi natin alam na napagdaanan niya, natutunan niya (I think she has experiences she can share with us, things that we might not know she has gone through or learned about)," she added.

The TV host also had a message for Charice's critics. "It’s easy kasi to judge someone na wala tayo doon sa pwesto niya," said KC. "But 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. (It's easy to judge someone when we haven't been in their position. But the international scene is also hard like Philippine showbiz, so Charice might have experiences we're not aware of that have helped her.)"

    Why does Charice need defending and why are they asking the wrong question? The real question is why xfactor philippines deserves an international star/celebrity like charice?
