For her part, Filipino-Canadian Aragon will sing “Lupang Hinirang,” the Philippine national anthem.

The 10-year old Aragon was in the Philippines recently to record and promote her debut album under Star Records. She landed in the news when music star Lady Gaga twitted that she had viewed a YouTube video of Aragon playing the keyboard and singing her new song “Born This Way.”  The young singer has so far invaded several U.S. shows such as “Good Morning America” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

The 16-year-old Megia on the other hand, has just wrapped up a two-night concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Sept. 20 and 21 along with her fellow AI finalists, who are currently on their American Idol Tour.
