Delly Cuales, an Idol Philippines hopeful from Isabela wowed the judges with her rendition of an Aegis song. 

Twenty-four-year old singer Delly Cuales bagged the golden ticket in the Saturday episode of Idol Philippines season 2 when she performed the Aegis hit song titled Maniwala Ka.

"You nailed it with emotion. Naramdaman ko 'yun and gustong-gusto ko kasi 'yung paos na boses na ganyan. Sobrang ganda tapos sobrang kontrolado 'yung emotion mo sa mukha, 'yung pag connect mo sa akin and I really, really enjoyed this performance," judge Moira dela Torre told Delly after her performance.


Gary Valenciano also expressed his awe to Delly's audition, calling it a "natural" performance. 

"Dalawa 'yung sinulat ko dito. 'Yung isa 'yung salitang natural. Wala kang pinepwersa... 'Yung pangalawang nilagay ko dito 'gusto ko siya,' 'yun lang," Gary said. 

Regine also praised Delly for her performance, saying she knew the latter would deliver a strong audition the moment she laid her eyes on her. 

"Pagpasok mo pa lang may expectations na ako kasi normally iba 'yung nadidinig ko sa ini-expect ko. First time kong mag-expect na eksakto, tugma don [sa expectation]. Tapos nong kumanta ka, parang nasa isip ko talaga, 'Sana mag Aegis siya...' Nung kumanta siya, ang galing mo. Magaling ka," the Asia's Songbird said.

During her conversation with the judges, Delly teared up when she opened up about what she is currently facing.  The Idol hopeful shared that her live-in partner broke up with her. 

"May live-in partner po kasi ako. Hindi nagkaintindihan, nandito na po ako, ano, bigla na lang po umayaw sa relasyon namin," she explained.

Chito then comforted her, commending how brave she is to still pursue her audition despite her heartbreak.  

"Maybe you have to take this journey alone. Gusto ko lang i-commend na kahit may pinagdadaanan ka you came here and kahit apparently napansin 'yung anxiety mo regarding that, you still performed beautifully," Chito remarked.

Delly received four yes from the judges, allowing her to advance to the next round.
