We caught Pinay singing sensation Charice Pempengco on the season premiere of Glee yesterday—have you? The pint-sized singer earned rave reviews from Filipinos and foreigners alike, PEP.ph reports. Charice dominated Twitter trending as Filipinos around the world expressed their glee in Charice’s performance. Local celebrities were swept by the Glee fever as well. "Congrats @OfficialCharice for making so many pinoys proud today!!! Such an amazing achievement,” Anne Curtis tweeted. "One day I know magiging ka-boses din kita! :p"
Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly’s Tim Stack praised in his Glee episode 1 recap. "Charice/Sunshine's voice is insane, especially considering she’s about the size of a lawn gnome and dresses like a Harajuku girl (although I do always love the addition of a nice beret),” he said. “And just like Beiste's arrival brought out the beast in Sue, so too did Sunshine's debut provide a focus for the crazy machinations of our fair Rachel Berry, and that, in turn, shone a spotlight on Lea Michele's undeniable skills..."
You can watch Charice's two performances (the first with series star Lea Michele) from last night's episode in the videos below:
Lady Gaga's "Telephone" by Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) and Sunshine Corazon (Charice Pempengco)
"Listen" from Dreamgirls by Sunshine Corazon (Charice Pempengco)
