Pinay wins the Vietnam Idol: Janice Buco AKA Janice Phuong

A Pinay does it again. From US to Europe, Pinoys have been winning reality singing competitions. Janice Buco (with screen name Janice Phuong) just won this year's Vietnam Idol.

Vietnam has been a good place for Philippine singers, actors & teleseryes.

On display in the video below was not only the vaunted singing prowess of Pinoys but their knack for languages. Janice Buco here speaks in perfect Vietnamese. She has lived in Vietnam for seven years, performing professionally at bars and clubs.

The full show:


  1. Grabe, mas magaling pa to kaysa ibang sikat na singers natin.

  2. Mas ok pa version nya kay Adele

  3. May Pinoy wave na tayo sa dami ng mga sumali at nanalo.. Remember, national audience ang mga ito kaya may built-in sympathy na sa mga Pilipino..
    ... Sa Australia dalawang beses, Germany, sa Vietnam, Austria... yong mga finalists sa UK, Holland, Romania, etc... Dapat i-take advantage yan ng mga Pinoy producers kasi my base market na sa mga lugar na ito para sa isang mas malalim na Pinoy breakthrough

  4. Magaling siya. Congrats, Janice. Also, thank you, Vietnam, for being good to Pinoys

  5. I'm very proud of her. You want to know why? Vietnamese language is very difficult and to sing it needs extra special talent. This is what means to be proud of being Filipino, because she represented OUR people in Vietnam in the most beautiful and skilled way regardless of what others might think.
