Sylvia Ratonel, a Euro-Filipina who works as a secretary in Singapore, made it in the Top 13 of Singapore Idol. The 3rd season of Singapore Idol has started with top 13 contestants performing for the viewers’ votes.


In the Top 13 performance night, the contestants each sang a chart-topping song. Sylvia selected Alicia Keys’ “Fallin’” (click here to watch the video) and wowed the judges. She avoided the bottom three for the said performance.

In the Top 12 performance night, the contestants had to sing songs from the year they were born. Sylvia chose “Sweet Child of Mine” by Guns and Roses. Although she received mixed reviews from the judges, the pinay secretary survived the eliminations once again.

Sylvia is now becoming a singing sensation in Singapore and her performance videos are now getting thousands of hits in YouTube. The judges of Singapore Idol believe that her energetic nature would get her further in the competition.

If ever Sylvia Ratonel wins the third season of Singapore Idol, she will be the next pinoy to win a foreign version of the Idol franchise outside the US and the Philippines after Christian Mendoza won Denmark Idol in 2003.
