Charice Pempengco to guest live on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'

After Charice wowed the Korean audience on 'Star King', now Emmy-winning Ellen DeGeneres wants Charice to impress her American audience when she featured Charice on one episode of her program 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' and said she wants her to guest live on her show, sit down with her and perform for her viewers.

Charice Pempengco's first TV exposure was when she joined MTB's Bulilit Popstar and was one of the grand finalists. I was an avid follower of the said portion of MTB and I could still remember Charice, who was only 8 years old then, perfectly singing
I Will Always Love You' by Whitney Houston. The grand winner then was a little boy imitating Eminem.

This talented girl resurfaced on another ABS-CBN show, the Little Big Star, and there she never failed to impress with the songs And I Am Telling You, I Will Always Love You, Lipad ng Pangarap, Ikaw ang Lahat Sa Akin, Hot Stuff and many more. Charice, who was only a wild card contender, placed 3rd during the Grand Finals, behind Sam Concepcion and Gian Barbarona.

From there, especially with her performances posted on Youtube, Charice gained immense popularity, not only in the Philippines, but in the world.

The video uploaded by FalseVoice showing Charice and America's Got Talent winner Bianca Ryan for a face-off is to be credited for Charice's heightening success. The video which now has almost a million hits in less than a year has widened Charice's fan base and eventually, catching the attention of the world, which includes Ellen deGeneres.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show has an estimated 3 million viewers per episode and is considered as one of the most viewed daytime programs in the US. It's also known for giving 15 minutes of fame to ordinary people. Charice's would-be guesting on the show would surely pave way to greater opportunities for her and from an ordinary girl, Charice will turn into a world famous Filipina singer after Lea Salonga did it in the 90s.

Charice will officially be guesting in Ellen's show on December 18, 2007.
