Pilipinas Got Talent Premieres Today
After six weeks of searching for talented Filipinos all over the country, the much-awaited reality show Pilipinas Got Talent is set to air its pilot episode today, February 20.
Brace yourselves as PGT promises to showcase what Filipinos are made of. They will be showing a wide range of world-class acts from the usual singing, dancing, and acting pieces all the way to the bizarre, hilarious and never-before-seen performances.
The Kapamilya network acquired the Got Talent franchise which is a British TV format conceived and owned by Simon Cowell’s SYCO Company. It will be the first and only nationwide talent reality show in the Philippines.
PGT is hosted by Billy Crawford and Luis Manzano and it will be shown every Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 8:30 PM.
You can also catch the funny moments and unseen footages of PGT via “Pilipinas Got More Talent” which will be aired weekdays, 4:30 PM. It will be hosted by Marc Abaya.
Meet The Judges:
Freddie M. Garcia - He has a vital role in PGT not only because he is a former ABS-CBN President and COO but more in lieu of the fact that he is the man behind the success of celebrity A-listers such as Sharon Cuneta, Judy Ann Santos, Willie Revillame, Piolo Pascual, and even Kris Aquino. FMG claims that he will be fair but very analytical when it comes to looking for the ‘x-factor’ amongst the contenders.
Kris Aquino - Known as the Queen of All Media, Kris has worn every hat imaginable from being an award-winning host and box office queen to being the top and most effective endorser in the country. Here in PGT, will she be as sweet as an angel or will she be at her most intimidating stance when dealing with the contestants?
Ai-ai delas Alas - The Concert Comedy Queen may be the last addition to the panel of judges but a lot of Kapamilya viewers are already excited for her to provide comic relief in the show. But when asked what type of judge she plans to be, she naughtily replies, “I will be witty, funny, and maldita!”
