A ladyboy songstress tricked judges during her Thailand’s Got Talent audition with a show-stopping transgender rendition of “Unlovable.”
Beginning the song in a silky, feminine falsetto, the beautiful Nantita Khumpiramon shocked the audience and judges alike when she abruptly switched into her real, male voice. An inspired crowd rose to their feet, applauding the transgender singer and joining in her song.
When the 27-year-old deep-voiced singer finished her audition, the audience was in a frenzy–Khumpiramon had fooled everyone with her stunning appearance and feminine demeanour.
The camera cut to the show’s hosts, the Thai equivalent to “Ant and Dec,” who were left shaking their heads, saying, “I love her already.”
Then it was the panel’s turn. Lead judge Nirut Sirijany, the resident sourpuss, shook a finger at Khumpiramon saying, “You have deceived me, it is impossible.”
Despite his disbelief, Sirijanya and the other two judges voted the shemale singer into the next round with a resounding “Yes.”
Said fellow judge Pornchita Na Songkhla, “She’s beautiful, isn’t she? When the song changed I was stunned. We all were.”
The successful audition was an emotional one for Khumpiramon, who explained that she was teased her entire life for being a transsexual and was abused by her father, who wanted her to be “normal.”
In a message to her disapproving father, Khumpiramon looked into the camera and said, “I love you. I have finally made it now.”
