Do you know any of them?

Browsing the list, there are a lot of Filipino-sounding names like that Clint Jun Gamboa. I also saw some of his pics and he indeed looks like Pinoy.

That Jovany Barreto sounds like Pinoy too but sadly he's not one. But look at his pic! Wow! Is he a bodybuilder? :-D

Can't wait to hear him sing. He could be this season's Tim Urban and David Hernandez.

Thia Megia is confirmed to be a Filipina. (She joined a beauty pageant for Fil-Am teens. Read: Thia Megia was Miss Teen Filipina 2008 2nd Princess.) She already performed in a "David Foster and Friends" concert which also featured our very own Charice.
