Charice Pempengco -- who was once dubbed by Oprah Winfrey as "the Most Talented Girl in the World" -- is getting quite a makeover for her upcoming Glee debut.

The 18-year-old Filipino singer not only received Botox injections but also underwent a 30-minute Thermage anti-aging procedure.

The operations were part of an effort to make her "naturally round face" more narrow, celeb cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo tells ABS-CBN television.

Charice says the makeover was necessary.

"All people will be anticipating how will Charice look? Is she good enough to pit against Rachel Berry [Glee actress Lea Michele]? So of course, there is tremendous pressure," explained the teen, who begins filming at the end of the month.

Previously, Charice -- who was raised by a single mother and sang in local contests before getting her big break on The Ellen DeGeneres Show at age 15 -- has said that it's "really a blessing" to be accepted and that she is "very proud to be an Asian, very proud to be Filipino."
