James Reid gained critism ‘AGAIN’ because of rejecting one contestant in Idol Philippines

Kapamilya actor James Reid once again got criticized on social media after he defended his decision to reject reggae singer Luke Baylon in “Idol Philippines.”

In the May 12 episode of Idol Philippines, hopeful Luke Baylon performed a reggae version of Alicia Keys’s “If I Ain’t Got You.”


James and two other judges, Moira de la Torre and Vice Ganda, said no to the singer. Only Regine Velasquez believed in him and gave him a nod.

A lot of netizens were disappointed after the said auditioned failed to advance to the next round because he only got one “yes” from the judges.


On Twitter, Reid addressed people who have been criticizing him and fellow judges Vice Ganda and Moira de la Torre for saying ‘no’ to the 21-year-old aspiring singer from Tuguegarao City.

“You have no idea how hard it is to crush people’s dreams right in front of them. That’s the burden we carry as judges to try and give one special person a chance of a lifetime. Just wait. The auditions aren’t even the hardest part,” Reid tweeted.

In another tweet, Reid praised Baylon and his “sick” version of Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You”.


“Like I said, Luke Baylon is a good singer but we’re looking for the total package. Wait till you see the 12 finalists. You’ll see why I said he wasn’t ready. For now, I wish Luke all the success is his music career,” tweeted the actor-singer.
