We did it again!
Pinay-Spanish Alexandra Masangkay Escalona may not be the winner in last night’s finale of Spain’s most popular singing contest Operación Triunfo (OT). Nahuel, from Paraguay, who got the most text votes brought home the grand prize of this short-lived, least-watched OT edition.
Alexandra was declared as the most popular contestant over the internet, which still entitles her to continue her singing career under the Spanish recording label Blusens Music.
This feat was achieved thanks to millions of people, especially Filipinos in Spain and all over the world who supported, campaigned and voted for her on Facebook, Twitter and otlive.es.
Some even participated in the second Flashmob and mass dance held last Saturday, February 19, in Barcelona, Spain as you will see in the following video:
