we like charice and we applaud her success. charice has gone to places where many pinoys have not been to. there is no question she is one of the best, a rising star in singing, but we can’t say the same about her acting and her speech.
charice is appearing in glee, one of america’s top rated tv shows. she is also making a hollywood movie. just looking at this clip from glee, she obviously needs to take acting and speech lessons.
she is bland in her acting, emotionless and she can’t seem to register emotions on her face. she looks too stiff, unable to get into acting. she looks and sounds like she is just reading off a dummy board, not acting. she is unable to register any emotion on her face, a key requirement in acting in front of a camera. the poor acting is just very obvious here that the director and editor decided to cut away from charice and show reaction shots of the other cast members instead.
her english speaking is also very bad here. it is actually using pinoy english speaking, accent and diction made by pinoys who do not speak english often. that is not bad when spoken in the philippines and among pinoys but she is appearing in an AMERICAN tv show with an american audience. her primary market as a singer is the US market, she needs to adapt to the ways of the US market and americans.
it is a fact that for one to be understood by americans quickly and easily, it is best to speak in the same accent and diction that they use. this is not only true in the US but also true in all countries. if you go to hong kong or singapore, it is better for you to speak in the way they speak english to be understood better and faster by them. same thing in america.
charice has gained a very good measure of success in the american market and no doubt she will conquer even more. she can certainly afford to hire an acting and speech coach to help her on these two things, the faster she gets help on these, the faster she will conquer america.
charice has actually improved significantly since she started appearing in the US. she has a little bit of an american accent now, able to better understand questions and able to give acceptable answers. but this improvement is not enough. she needs to to exponentially improve even more.

glee watchers are are abuzz with the news that charice pempengco returns to glee 2 this week with a goose bump rendition of celine dion’s “all by myself”.
here is the promo video:
the network released a video of pempengco performing the song in the show but unfortunately embedding has been disallowed and neither can it be viewed in the philippines.
the tv station however released an aido recording of it. it is just the audio but it is great listening. watching it on the show will be great for sure.
Fox has released the exclusive Glee spoiler featuring the segment of Charice as Sunshine Corazon on Glee’s Night of Neglect episode.
If you cannot wait until April 19th, play the video below to see the whole segment of Sunshine Corazon (Charice) breaking into William McKinley auditorium and had some confrontation with the kids of New Directions.
On the clip, Sunshine Corazon returns to WMHS and proposed to perform for the Glee club benefit concert. Rachel accused Sunshine working as a spy and considered her as an enemy. “You are a terrible spy,” Rachel said. “I am not a spy. I heard about your benefit concert on Facebook and I wanted to perform,” Sunshine explained. “I’m such a better singer than everyone else so I know how it feels. I’m all alone at the top. Also, I’m really short, so even when I’m in a group of people I feel like I’m wandering alone in a forest,” she added. Puck favors her and asked ND to gave Sunshine a chance.
Charice was not able to confirm where her role will go from here, but she did reassure fans that her character will be around for more beyond tomorrow night’s episode. As for whether or not Sunshine will be attending the “Glee” prom, we will have to wait and see. Charice giggled and stated that she honestly had no idea if her character was making an appearance during the episode.
The cast has been filming prom scenes for the past couple of weeks. Charice has been in Boston shooting her upcoming movie role in “Here Comes the Boom.” Given her busy movie schedule across the country, it is not likely that we will see her in the prom episode.
charice pempengco sings national anthem at noynoy aquino inaugural – prefect singing but what is with the dress?
charice did us proud with what we think is a perfect rendition of the national anthem at noynoy aquino’s inaugural yesterday. it was a beauty listening to her sing it but we had our eyes closed – what was with her dress?
charice in her dress looked like she just came out from a walt disney movie. she really looked funny in that dress. good thing she was great to listen to.
this blog is a fan of charice pempengco. many posts have been made in the blog to celebrate charice’s singing career. she will now start on new career path and this one is really huge – as a cast member of the US tv hit show Glee. charice is on the verge of truly going big time.
but what about the sleepless nights we have on this new beginning for charice? here they are:
- how is charice’s english speaking skills? we have seen here improve over the years and we must admit the improvement has been dramatic. we are just not sure if the level of improvement in her english skills is to the level of delivering the lines in Glee.
- more importantly and this to us is a bigger worry – can she handle interviews by the press with her english skills? we have watched charice in the US talk shows and she did not do well in many parts.
- her biggest problem is comprehension. we think often times charice was unable to understand the question properly. in some of these interviews, charice gave an answer that was way off. obviously she was unable to understand the question.
- charice in most parts can handle direct and simple questions but she is unable to read between the lines. often she is unable to understand there are hidden meanings in the questions asked of her and when she gives an answer it comes out flat or way out there. we do not know if it’s poor comprehension skills or her immaturity. we think it’s more the former.
- what will be the story line in the glee tv show when charice joins the cast and story? we hope it will be culturally sensitive to filipinos.
bottom line – we cringe in fear of a monumental error to be commited by charice every timee we see her on tv being interviewed. we wouldrather she just sing than talk.
it will take more than just brilliant singing skills now for charice. she will enter a different kind of world with a lot more challenges and needing many more skills to succeed on it. we hope her handlers are aware of this and will put a lot of efforts to train her and get her to acquire the skills.
we wish charice the best. we also applaud her.
