The Pinoy trio, TNT Boys, has continuously wowed international audiences after competing in the new reality talent competition television series, ‘The World’s Best.’ Judges Drew Barrymore, RuPaul, and Faith Hill gave the boys a standing ovation after they nailed the song ‘And I Am Telling You’ from the ‘Dreamgirls’ musical.
After the performance, the Tawag ng Tanghalan Boys garnered a total score of 97 percent after 47 Wall of the World judges voted for them. While their contender, South Korean Dance Crew Emotional Line, received a total of 43 percent.
Show host James Corden warmly welcomed the three and said, “That was too good. It’s so infectious. For a while, I never knew why you were called the TNT Boys and then I realized whenever you sing you just blow the roof off the place and that’s probably why.”
RuPaul, one of the judges, was so amazed by the performance that he claimed that he already loves the trio.
“Oh, am I gonna love them? I already love them! I didn’t think I could love them any more but my goodness every note, pitch-perfect. You boys are fabulous.”
“I think you’re the embodiment of what this show is about. It is an all-ages party and everyone is invited.”
Faith Hill also thinks that the boys are already superstars and feels lucky having to witness them perform.
“I think we’re all witnessing, uhm, superstars. I really do. Can I say you have the kind of confidence that allows the audience to relax and enjoy your performance. I just feel like the luckiest person in the world being here and sit here and witness this.”
One of the Wall of the World’s jurors, who is a vocal coach and TV personality, Zoe Tyler also expressed her excitement after she learned that TNT Boys are coming back on stage, adding that she is a fan.
“I am your biggest fan forever and ever, and ever, and ever. TNT, I don’t know what that stands for — Totally Natural Talent.”
As of now, the trio has the highest score for the second round of the competition, followed by Dimash Kudaibergen who got 94 percent.
In the Worlds Best official Youtube channel, the video posted already garnered a total of 1,004,543 views as of this writing. It reads, “The TNT Boys of the Philippines bring the house down with a performance of “And I Am Telling You” that felt like it was sung straight out of ‘Dreamgirls.’ It’s pretty certain you’re going to love them as much as the judges did. #WorldsBest #TWBTNTBoys.”
