Child actress Xia Vigor impressed everyone when she channeled Taylor Swift for her performance in ABS-CBN's talent show, Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids. Xia went all out for her "You Belong With Me" number—with her own dramatic on-stage costume change.
It wasn't just Pinoys who went wild over Xia's T-Swift number. The Huffington Post, Metro, Elle.com, People.com, TIME.com, and Mail Online did features on Xia.
US entertainment scribe Perez Hilton also tweeted about Xia.

Xia is the daughter of British national Alan Vigor and Filipina Christy Bernardo. Her family came back to the Philippines when she was still a toddler.
Her debut in the spotlight was in 2015 through the "Mini Me" segment on ABS-CBN's noontime variety show It's Showtime. Xia had been packaged as a Selena Gomez "mini me." She was declared as the grand winner.
Xia was later cast as Princess Chavez in the ABS-CBN TV series Langit Lupa.
Xia has likewise done TV ads—one of them is for Nissin Classic Wafer.
With all these milestones early in her showbiz career, Xia seems destined to be the country's next big star. (But, before that, maybe we'll see her in a T-Swift video?)
