Eduardo is in the Latin American Idol Finals

December 2, 2009

It’s official!  Costa Rican representative Eduardo Aguirre is one of three finalists in the fourth edition of the “Latin American Idol.”  The Costa Rican got enough votes last night to stay in the competition and make it to the last concert tonight.  

Competition last week was fierce and all four participants really stood out on stage.  However, the public once again believed in the talent of the young man from Esparza, which is a town in the northern section of the province of Puntarenas, not far from Puerto Caldera.

The excitement was more than evident on the face of the Costa Rican, who showed last Wednesday that he has the spirit of an artist, as Jon Secada said.  Tonight will probably be more difficult for the young Costa Rican singer because he will again have to sing two songs and they will determine whether he will be the next Latin American Idol.

Adolfo Arias, head of ICE’s services division in the Telecommunications sector in Costa Rica, said that voting went very smoothly last week.  “It was just as we had expected.  Voting doubled from the previous week and it was the week when the most votes were cast so far this season.  We will be ready for the final onslaught now that Eduardo is in the finals,” he noted.

Eduardo’s followers in Costa Rica must get some of the credit because they have continued to cast their votes to try to put him through to the finals.  The time has come for his followers to really make their vote count so that a Costa Rican can be the next Latin American Idol.


A Great Show by Eduardo Aguirre in Latin American Idol

December 1, 2009

Eduardo Aguirre is flying high.  The Costa Rican representative finally hit its stride and got the best judge comments since he has been competing in “Latin American Idol.”

The unplugged concert really favored, and he even got a second “Bien Cantao” during this fourth season from judge John Secada.

“It was so wonderful.  It was a magical night.  It was time to transmit emotion and I did it,” said Aguirre to national newspaper right after the show in Argentina.

He did so well that even Oscar Eduardo Mediavilla had no negative comments which to direct at the singer.  “It was very funny when I said I had thrown him off,” recalled the young Costa Rican while laughing.

If Eduardo obtains the necessary amount of votes, then he will arrive in Costa Rica the following day to record a special segment for the final.

“I hope they are proud of me because everything I do is with my heart and thinking of my country,” said the singer, who also lamented the passing of Froilan Bolaños.

Therefore, if Costa Ricans give Eduardo Aguirre their support, then he will surely be in the finals.  It remains to be seen whether there will be a Costa Rican in the finals for the second consecutive year.
