This woman SHOULD NOT WIN. PERIOD. Compared to that little boy, Ori Shakiv, she is NOT that great a singer. Second: She will never make it as a recording artist in Israel. PERIOD. I can understand the novelty of the idea, but if we are honest...the Israeli music market is very small and very distinct. Its either international pop or Mizrachi music. Rose doesn't fit in either. She'll never be a Katie Perry or Rihanna and she'll never be a Sarit Hadad. In order for her to make it as an English singing artist in Israel, she must first establish a career in the American or European market. Otherwise, Israelis will just always see her as the Filipino caregiver who lucked out and won a singing competition. So unless Idan Raichel decides to put her on one of his records, I don't see her career in Israel going very far. Awarding her the X Factor title would not only be a waste, but a dis-service to the entire premise of X Factor ISRAEL. Not to say the winner must be Israeli, but the winner should certainly possess attributes that are marketable on the Israeli music scene. The prize should be given to someone who has a viable chance....Ori Shakiv.
