ASAP (Amazing Stories about Pinoy) 501: Thia Megia – A FilAm petite girl shines in American Idol Season 10

ANOTHER FILIPINO-AMERICAN made it in the final 24 of American Idol this year. Thia Megia is 15 yrs old, born/raised in Mountain House, CA and she also joined the America’s Got Talent in 2009, consequently she successfully went to the quarter finals round.

The first video was taken in March 2010 during her appearance at TFC’s Balitang America – a daily Filipino program being shown in the States. The second video was her first audition for American Idol in Milwaukee late last year.

 ON THE OTHER HAND, another superstar in the making – a Canadian-Filipino who posted her own rendition of Lady Gaga’s latest song, Born This Way in Youtube Channel last week.  Maria Aragon is only 10-yrs old girl and she was invited to perform in Ellen Degeneres’ show, including ABC’s Good Morning America. Be the judge and enjoy!

 UPDATES: It is reported that Thia Megia is currently buzzing online according to Yahoo’s American Idol BuzzMeter site. This 15-yr old Filipina is topping the most searched contestant on Yahoo! Im also doing a little background check to confirm if Clint Jun Gamboa – the karaoke host is also a Filipino contender. More updates to come!
