After being dubbed “The Most Talented Girl in the World,” openly gay and former Glee star Charice Pempengco has earned yet another international distinction, this time for her stint as a judge on “The X Factor Philippines.”
The 21-year-old singer on Friday thanked Guinness World Records on Twitter, as she posted a photo showing details of her record-setting achievement as the world’s “youngest winning judge.”
The entry, which will come out in the 2014 edition of the Guinness Book of Records, reads, “Charice (Philippines, b. Charmaine Pempengco, 10 May 1992) was 20 years 150 days old when she mentored KZ Tandingan (b. Kristine Tandingan) to victory in the first season of ‘The X Factor Philippines’ on 7 October 2012.”
Pempengco appeared as mentor-judge on the ABS-CBN-aired reality talent search, alongside veterans Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera and Pilita Corrales.
Meanwhile, Charice is teaming up with another openly gay musician Aiza Seguerra in a concert slated September 28 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The concert dubbed as “Charice and Aiza: The Power of Two” will feature the acoustic singer-songwriter and international singing sensation on one stage.
