The first episode of Glee’s highly-anticipated second season is titled “Audition” and it features the new character “Sunshine Corazon”, a Filipino foreign exchange student, portrayed by international singing sensation Charice.
Technically, this is Charice‘s second acting performance in the US as she played a cameo role in the Hollywood film Alvin and the Chipmunks The Squeakel last year. But bagging a recurring role in the highly popular tv series Glee is so big not only for her career but for us pinoys as well because she puts the country on the map again.
The “audition” episode premiered 4:00 p.m. today, September 22, via sattelite on ETC and Jack TV. And as expected, Charice is the talk of the town. In fact, the terms “Charice” and “Sunshine Corazon” alongside the term “watching Glee” are among the Top 10 trending topics on Twitter worldwide.
“Charice” is ranked 6th early this morning while “Sunshine Corazon” is at no. 8. As of this moment, the term “Sunshine Corazon” climbs to no. 4 while “Charice” is at no. 9 and the term “Watching Glee” left the Top 10.
