Korean-American K-pop singer Alexa (26, AleXa, Kim Se-ri) was honored with the final victory in the American terrestrial broadcaster NBC’s contest program.
Alexa was the first K-pop singer to lift the trophy in a large-scale American audition program.
According to her agency, GB Label, Alexa took first place in NBC’s ‘American Song Contest’, which was broadcast in the United States on the 10th, as the representative of her hometown of Oklahoma, defeating prominent candidates.
The agency explained, “It is the first time that a K-pop artist has won a large-scale audition held in the United States.”
The American Song Contest, first aired in March of this year, is a program in which 56 contestants representing each state in the United States gather to compete for the best hit song in the United States. In this program, several singers who are called naero also appeared.
He drew attention as the only K-pop artist among the 56 performers. Her contest song ‘Wonderland’ left a strong impression on local viewers and took first place in the viewer’s vote.
Alexa was the only team among 10 teams to score 700 points in the final, beating Washington’s Allen Stone, Connecticut’s Michael Bolton, Colorado’s Ricky Lynch, and Alabama’s NI/CO to win the trophy.
Alexa wept as she grabbed her face when her name was called as the winner.
Alexa said through her agency, “I really didn’t expect it, but thank you. Thanks to the many people who supported me, I was on stage until the very end. I sincerely thank you for giving me such a miraculous gift.”
Alexa also got a chance to appear on the US ‘Billboard Music Awards’ to be held on the 15th (local time) by winning this audition.
Alexa is a historical figure in the K-pop world. He is an American national and is active in the K-pop producing system. He was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was born to a Korean mother and Russian-American father, who were adopted to the United States when he was five years old.
Alexa dreamed of becoming a forensic scientist, but her dream was changed by K-pop, such as Super Junior and SHINee. In 2017, in an audition held by the American K-pop site ‘soompi’ and Cube Entertainment, they took first place overall and set foot on Korean soil.
He also appeared on Mnet’s audition program ‘Produce 48’ in 2018, and then made his debut as a trainee with ‘Bomb’ the following year. It drew attention with the concept of ‘AI in a multi-universe’. Afterwards, a metaverse fan meeting was held.
In particular, even with a small body of 150 cm tall, the explosive energy is excellent. Starting with her ballet, she has learned a variety of dances such as tap dance and hip-hop, so her flexibility to use her body freely is an advantage.
