Pilipinas Got Talent Season 2 Premieres this Saturday
February 25, 2011 by ABS-CBN
The biggest talent search on Philippine television returns!
A blind girl playing the piano, brothers tapdancing on regular leather shoes, a girl circling hoola hoops simultaneously around her body, and a brass band composed of 70 members altogether on one stage.
These are only some of the acts to watch out for as Pinoys once again show the world what they’ve got in the highly-anticipated second season of the biggest nationwide talent-reality show “Pilipinas Got Talent” premiering this Saturday (Feb 26) on ABS-CBN.
The search is on once more for that world-class act worthy of winning the P2 million cash prize and getting that once-in-a-lifetime shot at stardom just like PGT season one grand winner Jovit Baldivino, who is now living the dream and making a mark in the industry with his music.
As PGT returns on air, so are its wacky hosts Luis Manzano and Billy Crawford’s who are both very excited to get back on stage and do the show all over again.
“I am extremely happy. We all know how much people supported the first season so it’s a good feeling doing the same thing all over with Billy boy,” said Luis.
Big 3 judges Queen of all Media Kris Aquino, Comedy Concert Queen Ai Ai Delas Alas, and former ABS-CBN President Freddie M. Garcia a.k.a. FMG are also back to decide who makes the cut and who among the acts deserve to be in the grand finals.
When asked what advice they can give to season two hopefuls, Kris said “This is a God-given chance. It’s a chance to perform for the entire nation. Ibigay mo na ang lahat dahil minsan lang dumadating ang ganito kalaking oportunidad.”
“Mataas ang pressure ngayon dahil dapat kabugin niya ang season one. Kung dati binuhay niyo ang katawang lupa ko, ngayon mas buhayin niyo pa ang kaluluwa ko,” added Ai Ai.
FMG also encouraged hopefuls to be braver and bolder than ever and prove that they are truly the best as he expects the competition to be on the next level this time around. “Mas technical ang judging ngayon. It’s a totally different show because it’s a variety show. You really don’t know what to expect. I think that is the beauty of PGT.”
“Pilipinas Got Talent” is indeed one of the most successful and most watched talent-reality show on Philippine TV that catapulted its first ever grand winner Jovit to stardom. Since he won June last year, Jovit already released two albums under Star Records, the first one hitting the Platinum record mark, and was able to stage his first major concert at the Music Museum.
More doors also opened for other PGT season one grand finalists who are also doing well on their respective fields.
Don’t miss the much-awaited return of “Pilipinas Got Talent” this Saturday (Feb 26) and Sunday (Feb 27), 8:45 PM on ABS-CBN.
