The last time I checked, there were already 213 contestants that would go to Hollywood! Oh, too many golden tickets, huh! Well, surely it would be a very stiff competition once again.
There are Fil-Ams who tried out and qualified. One is Kristen Corpuz. Her audition was not shown though as far as I watched the five episodes or I just missed it? Anyways, she has a big voice and sings well. I hope that she enters the top 12.
I do not know if Ashley Robles is also a Fil-Am. There are videos in YouTube though that shows her singing at Fil-Am events. Anyways, she sang well during her audition.
