It started as many other X Factor acts. A beautiful woman introduces herself before launching into a love ballad.
Her sexy voice soon whipped up the crowd with claps and even standing ovations.
Stunning 27 year old Nantita Khumpiramon then dropped the bombshell.
The singer dropped her voice to that of her male alter ego. The camera cuts away to show the hosts giggling in shock.
Having fooled everyone, the transgender singer leads the chanting audience through the remainder of the song Unlovable with her ‘real’ voice.
‘You have been deceiving me all along. It’s impossible,’ said Sirijanya who is the grumpy ‘Simon Cowell’ of the Thai show.
‘He’s beautiful, isn’t he? I was dumbfounded’ responded fellow judge, actress Songkhla.
Nantita was voted through to the next stage of the competition.
