The dual-voiced singer became speechless after hearing the announcement.

That’s all. Thank you so much,” Joan addressed the audience.

Judge Heidi Klum also praised the talented singer for his outstanding performance. “I love you so much. You have the most beautiful voice. I should actually say the most beautiful voices inside of you. You are a champion. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with all of us,” she said.
Pomoy channeled his inner Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson by singing their song “Beauty and the Beast” in both male and female keys.
He previously showed-off a standing-ovation performance during the semifinals of the US talent competition. He sang Andrea Bocelli’s Con Te Partiro/Time to Say Goodbye also in dual voiced.
Meanwhile, Mumbai-based dance crew V. Unbeatable was named as the winner of the competition.
Sandou Trio Russian Bar grabbed fourth runner-up, Tyler Butler-Figueroa finished second while Duo Transcend bagged first runners-up. In fact, Pomoy said V. Unbeatable was his biggest rival for the title.
Prior to his journey in this competition, Pomoy won first the Philippine’s Got Talent in 2011, the Filipino version and franchise of America’s Got Talent. In fact, he was first recognized abroad for his “golden female voice” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2018.
