Robert Blackburn (age 16) from Doha, Qatar sang “She Will Be Loved” by American pop rock band Maroon 5 on Idol Philippines 2019 Auditions.
“She Will Be Loved” was written by frontman Adam Levine and lead guitarist James Valentine. The song was released in 2004 and peaked at No. 5 in the United States.
Robert Blackburn failed to get any Yes vote from Idol Philippines 2019 judges Vice Ganda, Regine Velasquez, Moira Dela Torre, and James Reid. The judges said Robert was not yet ready for a tough competition and may need to practice performing. However, they noted his good looks, which they said may have a chance in Philippine showbusiness, as long as he learns to speak Filipino or Tagalog.
