Glee > Actually, Charice WILL Recur on Glee! > Comments Page 2
I hope Charice will not stay in GLEE permanently. But no doubt being in Glee is a good training ground for her future plans. But I do think, she is doing fine on her own. Charice is so talented and I´m a bit afraid that her success will be glued in GLEE. This sort of broadway series is used to rehearsals after rehearsals and all the cast members are getting used to it. Seems to me, that once you separate them nobody will really stand out. If you asked them to sing or dance without rehearsing it, I think they will be frozen on the spot. This is why I like Charice, she´s truly a versatile singer. You can put her in any venue and she´ll fit right in and adjust rightaway without too much of a problem. About her looks which seems to be the discussion around here. OMG, I saw her in person, this girl is so cute and petite, very charming indeed. Her beauty is unique and natural, she has a nice skin and don´t need being cover by lots of make-up. And one more thing I can´t say that those pe
She's famous in America because she's talented. American singers her age aren't actually talented. (Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Ke$ha...) In the Philippines, looks matter. A lot. More than talent sometimes. Not that looks aren't valued in America, but when you have unique talent like her, she's more Biana Ryan/ Susan Boyle famous. The 'not so TV pretty' ones with the voices that increase your heart rate. But I wish it was just a guest spot. I'd like to see the characters Ryan Murphy has already created develop more.
I don't care much for her, but I really like how much recognition it'll bring to the Philippines. Unless they a pull Ms. Saigon/ Lea Salonga on us and introduce her character as Vietnamese or Thai or something.
@gLeek You say that you are not anti-charice, yet you characterize her as a "knock-off."
The fact that she can emulate her idols to such perfection and in her own style is talent at its finest. This shows that she has the ability to change her voice to a particular tone if the song demands it. This is what one calls versatility and not many singers are capable of doing this. In fact, I really do not know of any other singer that can accomplish such vocal acrobatics – lol. This versatility allows her to sing songs of all genres, be it jazz, rock, pop, country or even rap. Moreover, the ability to be able to emulate others means she has an excellent ear for music and sound, which is why when David Foster asks her to sing a song in a certain arrangement, she executes with precision on the first try.
What defines Charice is not only her singing, but her ability to bring a particular personality, passion and feeling to each and every song that she sings. In essence, unlike the comm
@gLeek With all do respect, I will defer to those in the professional arena to ascertain the popularity of an artist. In the same breath that you indicate the statistics are superficial, one can also say that opinions such as what you have described are clouded in subjectivity.
I have spoken with many Americans and Canadians (non Filipinos, Filipinos and other cultural persuasions) who think Charice is one of the hottest artists out right now and that she has a very promising career. I also spoke with many Filipinos in PI and they say the same thing. As for being the brunt of many crude jokes, don't even get me started with the type of jokes or insults I read about Sarah or Regine among Filipino and non Filipinos. While at the end of the day it is all relative and opinions and/or conclusions will be subjectively based, the one very important qualifying factor (that cannot be ignored) is that there is more factual evidence that points to the rise of Charice's popularity as opposed t
By the way, I'm in no way anti-Charice. I'm just calling it like I see it (as most of the people here are doing as well).
@JD: Unfortunately, sales records do not really give much merit of indication of actual fan base. It's a superficial statistic and can be very easily altered or fabricated. I would advise being more observant of people and the popular trend, rather than citing figures like that. If one asserts premises like that using figures and statistics, look carefully at the medium it was obtained from. More often than not, the record company (i.e. Star Records) may be directly connected to the publishing source (i.e. newspapers, internet sites, et al), so I wouldn't put much premium on what they have to say. Conflict of interest? Concert attendees; that is even more dubious than record sales statistics -- common sense will tell you. PR and talent agencies can so easily fabricate either number of seats "sold" (you won't believe the huge percentage of local concert tickets allotted that are given away for free) or the attendance rate they announce after the concert. Often, agencies do both. Postula
@gLeek and @All 4 CHAIR & ST.BERRY(wishes to control TV shows) You two crabs are a joke. Your statements that imply her PI fan base consists mainly of old people and that she has no IT Factor is a load of crap! Her 2009 Album released under Star Records was the best selling Album in 2009 in PI. Her international release under Reprise Record has been #1 in PI for one month and still holds that position. Do I need to show you video clips of young Filipinos showing up when she gives concerts in PI? Why don’t you both go to her twitter account @officialcharice and see who is following her? Better yet why don't you both tell the cyber world what you really mean, that is, she does not live up to the beauty standards of the Philippine entertainment industry i.e. have that Mestiza beauty look which is why you look down on her. By the way, sorry to disappoint the both of you or pop your bubbles, but, your so-called mestizos and mestizas are not really that because they still look Filipino
Meh, I mean new characters are great and all but it doesn't give characters like Matt, Mike, Tina and others to develop much, ya know?
ASIANS in entertainment never really made it in mainstream USA. The stereo type, tall, beautiful , blue eyed , african -american macho,the latinos have been entrenched in America.
ASIANS are novelties ! Let us see if Charice can break ground . Mainstream USA seem very far for this young girl from tiny Philippines.
I do not know if Charice really needs this Glee thing. Her singing career is successfull in Asia and Europe. Done it all at 18 years old..
Maybe her handlers are now concentrating on the biggest market of them all......USA .
Of course , thats till China discovers her. One billion souls man!
It actually scares me.
Really? Because I could maybe deal with her for 2 episodes. But I really don't want her as a regular.
And I'm not scared of her. Or envious of her because she's talented and from the Philippines. I know she's talented. I respect that. I just don't like her, and don't think she's right for Glee. And her being from the Philippines has nothing to do with it.
I'm sorry, am i the only one who dosen't know who the hell she is?
As for her fans, her followings are mix. She's got the Pyramid hit now and she's still starting out basically in the US. So maybe this will be a good thing for her. We'll see when Glee resumes later this year. :)
Don't slam a person just because of where she came from. It's really annoying when people act so superior to other races--when in fact we could just be happy of other people's accomplishments.
I like Glee but more so now that Charice is a recurring guest. I think she is a perfect foil for Rachel's powerful vocals. I would love to hear them sing in a duet. Both are so good that I cannot wait for the second season to start. She's a great addition to the cast.
Don't like this.
why you people are scared of CHARICE? or you are envious because she talented singer from the Philippines? She is only a guest not a permanent member. get lost!
Two cents here, for @Jesse:
If we're tallying up Filipino non-Charice Pempengco fans, count me as one of them.
@All 4 CHAIR & ST.BERRY(wishes to control TV shows):
I couldn't agree with you more. In the Philippines, most of Charice's following are composed of old people and the occasional fellow gushing showbiz personality. Charice Pempengco lacks that certain factor that would appeal to the younger population demographic in general (not just in the Philippines).
This fact provides the irony that Glee is supposedly geared towards trying to appeal (and appease?) towards this particular viewing population, and yet they cast someone like Charice who has NO youth appeal whatsoever.
Best of luck in the ratings game for Charice's episode.
@All 4 CHAIR & ST.BERRY(wishes to control TV shows)
There was already a lot of plot inconsistencies and complaints about the lack of character development. You're right, the last thing they need is one more. PLUS the three others they'll introduce this season.
With respect to the bloggers on this site, especially those who says they are Filipino, things have a way to go on if deserving. It is natural that most will have comments on everything. This was a God given right of everybody. Just hope we used it wisely so that our forefathers, even parents, did something right for a change. Panalangin ko lang, hindi mawawala sa ating isip na tayo ay Filipino sa mata ng Diyos at ng ibang lahi.
Chairce will be an awesome addition. Her and Rachel's voices are so different (it's like comparing apples to oranges). Plus, you know that her Whitney songs will be explosive on the show. You can bet we're going to get some jokes about her height though, she's tiny!
No offense to her fans but this is a pretty wrong move for Glee. Why can't they develop the first characters first before bombarding us with a plethora of incoming characters??? I can't even!
Rachel/Lea will always be on top of my list. BTW, I'm a Filipino and sorry, I never liked her. Most of us don't. Most teenagers here don't. Really don't.
Sorry Resonance, but I find it very hard to believe that most of Charice's fans are not Filipino.
It is disappointing that you believe that Filipinos cannot get behind someone so nonobjectively talented as Charice!
The one thing that I do really wish for if this rumour is true - that they actually acknowledge that she is a Filipina actress/talent! I cannot count how many movies and shows have cast a Filipina/Filipino only to have the character from another Asian country like Vietnam or Thailand. There is a huge Filipino community in the US, there's nothing wrong with us ;)
