There’s a new Filipino talent wowing them all at X Factor UK. Marie Laroco, 17, earned a standing ovation during the X Factor UK audition after performing her version of Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’. 

Marie Laroco introduced herself as a 17-year old from the Philippines with big dreams. She said during the X Factor UK auditions that she has always wanted to be a successful music artist and flew all the way to London to make that dream a reality.

“Since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to be an international superstar. I want to be big. So that’s why I am doing this because I love to do it and this is my dream,” Laroco told the judges before her performance.

Marie then performed her own version of the Prince classic, ‘Purple Rain’, that drew raves from X Factor UK’s Robbie Williams, Ayda Field, Louis Tomlinson, and Simon Cowell.

This is not the first time Marie Laroco joined a reality talent competition on TV. Years ago, she joined one in the Philippines. Do you remember her?

Marie Laroco was then known as Giedie Laroco when she joined The Voice Kids 2014. She also wowed the judges during her blind audition and made it to Team Lea Salonga but, eventually, was eliminated in the succeeding rounds.

Hopefully, she’ll have better luck in X Factor UK.
