Filipina singer Alienette capped off her journey in the talent competition “France Has Got Talent” with a third-place-finish, singing “Quand On N’a Que L’Amour” (When We Have Only Love) for her final performance last December 13, Tuesday (Wednesday morning in Manila).

“Third place! That’s more than enough for a mere Francophile who dreamed of nothing but a short vacation in France. Making it to a French talent show’s grand finale is beyond my wildest dreams. That very first Incroyable Talent performance I gave already made me feel like a winner,” she posted on her Facebook account.

Expressing her gratitude, the 26-year-old visually impaired singer further added, “A million thanks to God for the talent and the spirit he endowed me, to my family who made me the artist and the person that I am, to my supporters all over France and back home for encouraging me and for helping me out all the way, and to ‘La France a Un IncroyableTtalent’ for letting me show my talent and for giving me a good reason to believe that I deserve my place not only in the show but also in the entertainment industry.”

She first impressed the show’s judges and audience with her performance of “J’avais RevĂ© (I Dreamed A Dream).”
