Filipinos in American Idol 2013by Boy Lopez
Filipino in American Idol 2013 or Filipino-Americans in American Idol 2013 is more apt. The Philippines have so much pool of talent when it comes to singing plus the fact that the Filipinos are one of the biggest immigrant communities in the United States. The result is Filipino talent shines through in American Idol. This year, American Idol have three Filipinos in the Top 20. They are Bryant Tadeo, from Hilo, Hawaai; Adriana Latonio from Anchorage, Alaska; and Jett Hermano from Seattle, Washington. The amazing thing is that only Adriana Latonio is of mixed-race (half-Mexican), Bryant Tadeo and Jett Hermano are both of pure Filipino race ( in its normal definition ).
