For the third time on the Grand Finals of The X Factor Australia 2014, teen Pinay Marlisa Punzalan received standing ovation from all four judges of the competition.
On the show’s final performance night, the finalists performed three songs each — their audition songs, their winner’s single, and duets with Jess Mauboy, Guy Sebastian and Olly Murs.
On her duet performance, the 15-year-old grand finalist performed with Australian R&B and pop singer/songwriter Jessica Mauboy.
Jessica, who’s also a runner-up on the fourth season of Australian Idol, has nothing but all praises for Marlisa.
“She’s incredible. I’ve been watching her on the screen, and you just always light up. You have incredible personality, and at the age of 15, wow, you remind me of me when I was in a show, and yeah, definitely, remind me a lot of me,” Mauboy said.
She also gave an advice to the young singer.
“You’re doing such an incredible job, and make sure you just be you, and sing, sing your heart out. Know that you’re always working hard, and reminding yourself why you’re actually there. And keep your family close.”
The X Factor Australia grand winner will be revealed at the end of the Live Decider show tomorrow.
