Charice says Glee cast’s positive reaction to her "Listen" audition piece was genuine

In an interview with ANC's The World Tonight on September 28, Charice said she considers her glee club audition the best scene she shot for Glee’s second season premiere. As the Filipino exchange student Sunshine Corazon, Charice sang "Listen" and clearly impressed the members of New Direction, who were rooting for her after her first few lines. Their reaction was "natural," she said, according to

Charice as Sunshine Corazon sings "Listen."

"Sabi nga po nila, totoo nga daw po ’yong reaction nila do’n... Natural po ’yon, hindi po sila binigyan ng directions po. Pinuwesto lang po sila tapos sabi lang po ng director na just do whatever you want, sige kung anong reaction ang ibigay niyo. I mean, except po of course kay Lea Michele, kailangan po talaga gano’n ’yong reaction niya."

("The cast told me their reactions were genuine. It was natural because they were not instructed to act in a certain way. Actually, the director just told them to do whatever they want--except, of course, Lea Michele, who had to act jealous of Sunshine.")

Charice’ Sunshine Corazon won’t be in the second episode that will premiere in the Philippines today at 4 p.m. on ETC, but she will definitely be back. "I won’t say when Sunshine will return. Just watch the entire season two; Sunshine will appear in many episodes," she told The World Tonight.
