Eduardo Aguirre from Costa Rica with Great Presentation

December 7, 2009

Eduardo Aguirre outdid his rivals in Latin American Idol 2009 in Argentina.  The Costa Rican representative became a real volcano on stage while singing “No tengo dinero” I Have no Money) by Juan Gabriel and “So soy aquel” (I am Him” by the Spaniard Raphael.

Such was his excellence that earned another “Bien Cantao!” (Well Sung) By Jon Secada, while Mimi just stood open-mouthed.  It could not be ignored that the public and even members of the band stood up to applaud the singer.  Not forgetting the fact that the public and even the band members stood to applaud him.  Even judge Oscar Mediavilla acknowledged what I was able to do on stage.

Eduardo Aguirre, the young Costa Rican singer whom no one, much less the judges, expected to get very far outshone the other male singer, Chilean Ruben Alvarez, and made it through to the finals against Dominican Martha Heredia.  In spite of the pleas from the judges and the outright favoritism shown to the Chilean, Eudardo Aguirre’s performance could not be ignored.  He wowed the audience, the Latin American public, and even if grudgingly the judges. 

Eduardo did not hesitate a single moment to show what he could do. He let his Costa Rican fans know that he is going to blow up the finals.  He says he is holding an Ace up his sleeve.  He also said that he has learned to use his voice to showcase the music instead of the other way around. 

The Chilean insinuated that Eduardo Aguirre imitated him, but Eduardo is a Costa Rican original.  He must now rest because he is only a few days away from facing off against Martha Heredia, who is a very worthy competitor.

If you are a fan of Latin American Idol and Eduardo Aguirre, then make sure you tune in on Wednesday night.  The finals this year seem to have lots in store, and we need to see the card that Eduardo says he is holding up his sleeve.  Make sure you are heard through your vote in Costa Rica.  Everything seems to be ready so that the next Latin American Idol will be from Costa Rica.


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.
