Singer Juan Karlos Labajo was quick to defend a reggae artist after the latter got rejected on “Idol Philippines”.

As seen in the latest episode of “Idol Philippines” over the weekend, 21-year-old singer Luke Baylon from Tuguegarao City gave Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You” a reggae twist and performed it in front of the show’s judges.

After his audition, judge Regine Velasquez voted in favor of Baylon, but fellow judges Vice Ganda, James Reid and Moira dela Torre disagreed saying that there was something lacking in the auditionee’s performance.

Labajo then took to social media to post an online rant about the said audition after it aired.

“It’s a yes for me. I’m not even gonna argue with the other judges. It’s easy to fix flats and sharps and such imperfections but it’s not that easy to find soul. Kakagigil,” Labajo said on his Instagram Stories praising Baylon’s talent.

“Huge shame on the other ‘judges’ for not seeing this guy’s potential. What a shame. Such a shame. I’m ashamed,” he added.

Netizens also shared the same sentiments as Labajo with some of them even questioning Vice Ganda, James Reid, and Moira dela Torre’s way of judging the contestants.
