Renaldo Lapuz

For those who are asking if Renaldo Lapuz is really a Filipino,the answer is YES!!!He is 44 years old Filipino from Las Vegas,Nevada who went to Dallas,Texas to audition for American Idol 7...Renaldo performed his original composition titled "We're Brothers Forever," showing that he is not only a talented composer but can also carry a tune, unlike William Hung. Simon Cowell was unimpressed at first but later on, he waved his hands as if conducting the Filipino singer.Fellow AI judge Randy Jackson was so amused that he called in AI host Ryan Seacrest to listen to Renaldo's performance. Meanwhile, fellow judge Paula Abdul stood up from her seat and motioned as if translating the song in sign language. She danced like a go-go dancer as Ryan and Randy sang merrily along with the enthusiastic singer.Randy even went up to Renaldo and held his hand as he belted out the lyrics: "I am your brother / your best friend forever / singing these songs / the music that you love / We're brothers till the end of time / together or not, you're always in my mind."After Renaldo's song number, Simon gave his assessment about the Pinoy's performance: "I'm going to make a prediction here. I have a horrible feeling that it's going to be a hit record.You're very entertaining. I actually like you but it's going to be 'No.'"In the end, Renaldo did not get the chance to make it to Hollywood but he did have a blast getting his proverbial fifteen minutes of fame. He had this message for the strict AI judge: "Simon, you are a great person. You give chance for people to sing for the whole world. Thank you. You are Heaven's chosen to give chance to any talent free of charge. Even if there are many people who throw you negative words, there are many people who like and admire you. You are a great person, Simon."Although Renaldo did not make it to the next level,I am still proud of him :-) I am sure his kababayans are also proud of him :-)

i think Reynaldo age is beyong the age limit to qualify for American Idol, thats why the judges (Paula and Randy) didnt say Yes or No to Hollywood
