17-year-old Maria Laroco from the Philippines stuns the judges and audience with a Prince Classic ‘Purple Rain’.
Before her performance she stated ”Since I was a little girl I wanted to be an international superstar, I want to be big and I love to do it, this is my dream”.
Maria then burst into a powerful performance of Purple Rain which got the audience up on their feet, while the judges looked on shocked.
Simon said “You are 17 years old, you’ve flown all the way, taken on one of the biggest songs in the world, I’m going to give you infinity yeses.”
With 4 yeses Maria went through to the next round.
