REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – On Thursday night’s episode of American Idol, Filipino-American singer Malaya Watson managed to advance to the Top 12, after she received enough votes for her rendition of a song by fellow Filipino, pop star Bruno Mars’ “Runaway Baby”.
Watson was in the Bottom 3 this week. But she was the first to be declared “safe” after a tense elimination round.
