The three judges, comprising of Canadian producer David Foster, Indonesian singer Anggun and South Korean hip-hop singer-songwriter Jay Park, all gave their resounding “yes”.

Anggun told Viola:

“I was so, so entertained by you and I wasn’t alone.”


David Foster said he admired Viola’s rapping skills, who did the rap parts without dentures. He even asked her:

“Are you currently single? Cause I’m always looking.”
