The three judges who did not give him the go signal to enter the next phase were James Reid, Moira dela Torre, and Vice Ganda. Regine Velasquez-Alcasid was the only one who gave Luke a “yes”.
Netizens quickly took their disappointment to social media which rapidly made the episode a trending topic.
A lot of the comments targeted the three judges who rejected Luke and called out their “lack” of expertise in the reggae genre.
Regine, however, was praised for recognizing the Luke’s talent.
Even singer JK Labajo shared his frustrations over the judges’ verdict over Luke on his Instagram Stories.
Luke also shared his version of the story through Twitter but as of writing, the Idol hopeful has deleted his account.
