Anh has become a sensation after amazing the audience during the show’s qualifier round with her cheerful performance of “Let’s Dance” originally sung by American singer Miley Cyrus.
At the fourth semi-final night broadcast on March 25, the girl continued to move audiences and the jury to tears with her singing of the song “This Is Me” by young Disney singer Demi Lovato.
“My heart was melted when I listened to your singing,” judge Thuy Hanh said after the performance. “I love you so much,” she added.
“I know it’s hard for you to be on stage, but your desire of singing gets you through all obstacles,” musician Huy Tuan commented. “You made the most touching story about music I’ve ever heard,” he confirmed.
While Phuong Anh went to the finale directly with the highest number of votes from the audience, popping dancer Duong Manh Hoa was chosen to the final list by the judges.

“Tonight you’re no longer a contestant, you’re an artist now,” actor Thanh Loc, member of the jury said about Hoa’s performance.

“This is one of the best performances I’ve ever seen,” he said.
