Last July 2009, we featured Thia Megia’s stint on America’s Got Talent season 4 where she emerged as a quarterfinalist.
Thialorei Lising “Thia” Megia, 15 years old, is now competing in American Idol Season 10 and there are rumors that she made it to the Top 20.
According to some reports, the American Idol Season 10 Top 20 have not been chosen yet. The top 40, (Thia’s name is included in the unofficial list), allegedly went to Los Angeles for the “Sing For Your Life” round where 20 will be eliminated. However, no cuts were made and to avoid spoilers, the Top 20 will be announced in mid February.
Speculations that Thia Megia made it to the Top 20 started when Star World airs an ad featuring her and saying her name.
To hype the speculations even more, Tim Yap announced on his showbiz talk show Tweetbiz last Tuesday night that Thia made it to the “Magic 10.” (May magic 10 pala sa American Idol? hehe)
On the other hand, the website Vote for the Worst picked Thia as their early bet for the worst contestant on American Idol season 10. They based their pick on Thia’s rendition of the Miley Cyrus ballad “The Climb” which Thia performed during the quarterfinals of America’s Got Talent in 2009.
We will soon find out if Thia did make it on American Idol as the 10th season premieres tonight on QTV-11 and Star World.
Thia posted on her Myspace page:
I believe that failure may help me take in to a greater extent of what now seems just a smidge of contentment. The more profound insight will become, the less inadequate to purpose we will feel…because I do believe that every person is made for a special purpose that is why we ambition to find it. The possibilities of tomorrow go beyond measure…but come what may; this doubtful absolution keeps me well unprepared. Still I aspire because possibilities ARE endless. We hold the power to choose…sightlessly, with just our sense of touch. And with of course the help of a powerful little thing called Magic….. Yes, It’s exists! Belief in turning the impossible possible is done so by the fuel in our hearts that I believe is comprised of magic. So believe in it in every way that you possibly can (: ‘Cause It’s right there…in your heart ♥…. My Fans: ♥ …. You have all inspired me to the depths of my heart & my spirit. It’d be nearly impossible to express my innermost gratitude towards each and every one of you, and the love, support, and inexplainable strength that you all have given me. …. I also want to thank my parents, and my grandparents. Your love, care, and inspiration, and me reflecting upon those actions, has brought me more happiness and joy than either of you could ever fathom. …. I love you all the edge of the universe. ♥
