James Reid says contestant Luke Baylon is “a good singer, but we’re looking for a total package”

Published

The judges of the ABS-CBN singing competition “Idol Philippines” were put on hot waters after they rejected a fan-favorite contestant Luke Baylon to proceed to the next round of the competition.

In one of the episodes of the show, Luke Baylon faced the judges, namely James Reid, Vice Ganda, Moira dela Torre and the “songbird” Regine Velasquez.

Baylon rendered his own reggae version of Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You.

Luke’s performance wowed the televiewers which made him trend online. However, the judges were not that impressed by Luke’s rendition.

Judges Vice, James and Moira said “No” to Luke which made him fail to proceed to the next part of the singing challenge. Only Regine appreciated Luke’s voice.

Because of the majority of the judges’ verdict, netizens had mixed reactions and even criticized the judges for not appreciating Luke’s unique voice.

After a few days of silence, one of the judges James Reid finally said his piece about the results through his social media account.

“Like I said, Luke Baylon is a good singer but we’re looking for the total package. Wait till you see the 12 finalists. You’ll see why I said he wasn’t ready. For now, I wish Luke all the success is his music career. That rendition of If I Ain’t Got You was sick 🔥— James Reid (@tellemjaye),” shared James on May 15, 2019.

He added, “You have no idea how hard it is to crush people’s dreams right in front of them. That’s the burden we carry as judges to try and give one special person a chance of a lifetime. Just wait. The auditions isn’t even the hardest part.”

James also wished the audience would see the other 12 finalists before they would criticize the judges for their decision.

“Wait till you see the 12 finalists. You’ll see why I said he wasn’t ready. For now, I wish Luke all the success is his music career. That rendition of If I Ain’t Got You was sick,” he said.

Before Jame’s tweet, some artists like JK Labajo and Quest also aired out their insights on the issue through social media.

“HUGE shame on the other ‘judges’ for not seeing this guy’s potential. What a shame. Such a shame,”said Labajo.
