While doing some exercises I found one where I am supposed to insert the correct answer in this dialogue, but I don't understand why it goes こそ。

マイクさん:「ジャンさん、歌うまいね」
ジャンさん:「そんなことないよ。マイクさん…………プロの歌手みたいだったよ」
マイクさん:「え、そうかなあ」

  1. なら  2. でも  3. こそ  4. が
16

「こそ」 is a particle whose main function is to emphasize and accentuate the preceding word or phrase.

「マイクさんこそプロの歌手みたいだったよ。」

this sentence means:

"It was you, Mike, who was like a professional singer."
