Filipina singer Bella Santiago became the first ever Filipina to advance to the live shows of The X Factor Romania.
On Friday, November 30, Bella bested Christian Sanda during the "duel round" when she belted out 1983 hit "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler.
Mentor Delia Matache admitted that it was challenging to choose between the two singers because both are really good.
"It was fantastic. I have no words!" Matache said.
Meanwhile, Christian expressed his admiration for the Pinay singer. “Bella is a complete package, has an amazing voice, her stage presence. I am speechless. She knows her body very well," he said.
The Caviteña's performance, which is now uploaded on YouTube, has reached more than 400k views as of this writing. She will be performing on the live show on December 9 as part of the competition's final 8.
