Pinay Madonna Decena, Favorite in Britain’s Got Talent 2

madonnace.jpgIf we have Ramiele Malubay on American Idol, we have Madonna Decena on Britain's Got Talent! Madonna Decena, a Filipino performing artist in England, is currently the crowd's favorite in the second season of "Britain's Got Talent," a reality competition produced by American Idol judge Simon Cowell with the same format as its US counterpart, "America's Got Talent."

Madonna has reached the semi-finals of the judges’ auditions for “Britain’s Got Talent.” If she makes it to the voting round, she will compete in live telecast of the final round on May 31, 2008.

Madonna is a 32 year-old single parent with two daughters (aged 5 and 6) from Project 8, Quezon City. She is a communication arts graduate from Miriam College.

Madonna has become a crowd favorite in the ongoing search, especially after the three judges – Simon Cowell, actress Amanda Holdren and journalist Piers Morgan (who is also a judge in America’s Got Talent) – picked her for the semi-finals during the live audition at Manchester theatre.

When interviewed by Piers during the first round of audition, Madonna said she joined the show to be able to provide for her two young daughters, then cried uncontrollably before the gallery crowd.

The female judge, Amanda Holden, cried in sympathy which turned into awe as Madonna sang Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” and belted the last line with such emotion and conviction that knocked the audience off their feet.

Britain’s Got Talent is a British television show on ITV (also on TV3 in Ireland). The talent search premiered on June 9, 2007, and broadcast daily with a live final on June 17, 2007.

It is a search for Britain’s next best amateur talent act, featuring singers, dancers, comedians, variety acts, and other talents of all ages. Anyone who believed they have talent was encouraged to audition.

The winner of last year’s search received £100,000 and performed at the Royal Variety Performance in front of the Queen and members of the Royal Family at the Empire Theatre in Liverpool.
