Auditions started recently where thousands of hopefuls coming from Visayas and Mindanao flocked to the Cebu Institute of Technology University in Cebu and Philippine Women’s College in Davao and showed what they got in hopes of following the footsteps of PGT’s first grand winner Jovit Baldivino.
The team only visited two locations but the turnout of applicants already surpassed the combined number of applicants who auditioned in almost 20 cities during the first season.
“The number of people who auditioned is very overwhelming. We cant event take a break because the number of hopefuls to be interviewed and to be watched will surely pile up in a matter of minutes,” said Rancy Recato, Executive Producer of PGT.
Pinoys showed better and more intense talents be it singing, dancing, or even unique and unconventional acts.
Even applicants during the first season auditioned once more and trying their second shot at stardom.
“Pilipinas Got Talent” is indeed one of the most successful and most watched talent-reality show on Philippine TV and its grand winner Jovit Baldivino is definitely soaring greater heights with the break given to him by the show. Even finalists like the breakdancing Velasco Brothers, Ezra Band, singers Sherwin Baguion and Markki Stroem, magician Alakim, ventriloquist Ruther Urquia, and guitarist Keith Clark Delleva are already making their marks and taking their respective paths in the industry.
The show also performed very well in ratings. It was able to hit a high of 43.1% only on its second week of airing based on national ratings data from Kantar Media.
PGT also trended a couple of times in the famous social networking site Twitter, which only proves how widely viewed the show is by Pinoys worldwide.
To all PGT hopefuls, you can audition on Dec 15 and 16 at the Lyceum Northwestern University in Dagupan, and on Dec 18 and 19 at the ABS-CBN complex in Manila. Everyone is welcome to join, be it young or old; solo or in groups; as long as you have the talent to sing, dance, do magic, do extreme exhibitions, and any other possible form of talents. Other audition legs on other parts of the country will be held on January 2011.
