Filipino-American singer Jett Hermano failed to enter the Top 20 of America's popular show "American Idol" during The Top 40 Sudden Death round on Wednesday night (Thursday in Manila).
For her performance, the Ilocos native sang Rihanna's "Only Girl In The World" in acoustic version, accompanied with a piano.
Judge Keith Urban praised Jett, saying she brought sexiness with her performance.
On the contrary, judge Nicki Minaj felt her performance did not have a climax.
Randy Jackson however praised Jett's falsetto and called it "Little Mariah's." He expected Jett would be doing something more than just sit in the piano.
Judge Mariah Carey meanwhile thought she was an interesting addition to the contest, and felt she was "intriguing."
Despite the generally positive reaction from the judges, Jett was sent home along with Melinda Ademi, Juliana Chahayed, Cristabel Clack, and Rachel Hale.
A spoiler from entertainment blog Rickey.org revealed another Fil-Am Bryant Tadeo also failed to make it to the Top 20. The second part of the Top 40 Sudden Death round for the boys is to be shown tomorrow.
If the spoilers are true, then the only remaining Fil-Am contestant on Idol is Adriana Latonio, who survived last week's round with her performance of Aretha Franklin's "Ain't No Way."
She is now set to advance to the "Sing For Your Votes" next week.
