MANILA — American rock icon Alice Cooper urged his more than half a million Twitter followers to check-out Jay R’s impersonation on “Your Face Sounds Familiar.”

The 67-year-old rockstar, who has been credited for inventing theatrical rock, shared a link of the performance on his Twitter with the caption:

“Check out Jay R channeling his inner Alice Cooper​ on the Manila show @yourfacesounds! #AliceCooper.”

Sharon Cuneta, one of the jurors in the competition was also impressed by Jay R’s performance.

“Jay R never does anything half-baked. He really studies the person he is about to impersonate, mula sa pag-awit, boses, every single movement. You keep competing with yourself and so you keep besting yourself. Congratulations,” she added.

Jed Madela also admired Jay R’s character during his performance.

“What I notice with you, parang every week, you erase yourself, as in para kang clean slate. Para kang blackboard, ineerase mo ‘yung character na pino-portray mo, ineerase mo ‘yung Jay R, tsaka kung anong inaassign sa’yo, ‘yun yung dino-drawing mo, ‘yun ang pinapractice mo at ‘yun ‘yung iniimplement mo kaya nararamdaman namin at nakikita namin ‘yun sa’yo at sa performances mo,” Madela said.

Jay R expressed his happiness about the post during an interview aired on “Aquino & Abunda Tonight” on Wednesday.

“I feel very proud that the ‘Godfather of Shock Rock’ made a comment about the performance,” he said.
