The X Factor is a British reality television music competition created by Simon Cowell. The show has introduced the globe to many brilliant performers, including One Direction and Little Mix.
The X Factor, like any other reality television show, is a music competition featuring outstanding moments. It has something for everyone: bad auditions, weeping competitors, and over-the-top judges.
However, in a musical performance that no one saw coming, vocalist, Sephy Francisco stunned everyone, including the famed Simon Cowell, by singing a fantastic rendition of a timeless duet during her audition.
The judges were taken aback when the 27-year-old Filipina singer unexpectedly sang a solo duet to the tune ‘The Prayer.’ The wonderful moment occurs when she perfectly switches between feminine and male parts.
‘The Prayer,’ a well-known song performed by Canadian vocalist Céline Dion and Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, surprised Francisco with his ability to sing both soprano and tenor parts in the song.
The Filipinos’ duet was favorably received, and Simon Cowell even claimed afterward that it was the first time he had ‘judged a couple as one person.’
Francisco’s performance on The X Factor demonstrated her musical and vocal versatility. While also demonstrating the range and dynamism of a single voice while singing. It was undoubtedly an impactful performance.
