Young Filipino singer Peter Rosalita who also recently competed in the 16th season of America’s Got Talent appeared on Ellen DeGeneres show last Monday, October 18.
The ten-year-old singer shared his experience in an Instagram post where he expressed his excitement of being a guest on the show.
“It was a once in a lifetime experience to sit and be interviewed on The Ellen Degeneres Show. I am beyond grateful for this opportunity and this is surely one for the books!” he exclaimed.
Rosalita, who flew from Abu Dhabi just for his appearance on Ellen’s, was one of the reality show’s youngest contestants where he belted ‘Never Enough’ from the musical drama film ‘The Greatest Showman.’
Ellen posted on Twitter a snippet video of Rosalita wherein he asked some questions about his 15-hour plane ride, how he started as a singer, his journey on AGT, and his reaction when iconic balladeer Celine Dion tweeted about him.
“Peter Rosalita is #AGT’s newest superstar and here’s why..,” Ellen tweeted.

The AGT semi-finalist thanked Ellen DeGeneres for having him on the show, “To the one and only Ellen Degeneres thank you and another goosebumps moment for me!
Rosalita is a Filipino citizen who was born in the United Arab Emirates, where he currently resides. He auditioned in AGT with the song ‘All By Myself’ wherein his video has over eight million views now on Youtube.
Unfortunately, Rosalita was eliminated in the semi-finals stage of the competition last September and ended his AGT journey with Mariah Carey’s “Without You,” which impressed the judges despite him having hiccups in the beginning.
