Little Big Shots: A Kids’ Version of Pilipinas Got Talent

How about giving the kids a shot?

That is exactly what ABS-CBN will do starting this weekend when they premiere its newest franchise program. Enter ‘Little Big Shots’, the Kapamilya network’s up-and-coming reality talent show.

The ‘Little Big Shots’ franchise was created by Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey and has since been adapted in 20 countries. The program is essentially a kid’s version of the ‘Got Talent’ franchise in which kids of various talents converge to show their abilities in front of a national audience.

The Philippine version will be hosted by Billy Crawford, with comedian Eric Nicolas hosting the online show. For Billy, ‘Little Big Shots’ is a relatively new experience for him. According to him,

“It’s my first time to host a talent show where I am the only person from showbiz, because I usually work with people who are already big shots. But here, you’d be surprised by how the kids carry the show, and I’m here to let their personalities shine. All I can say is the kids featured on the show are very exceptional and they really deserve to be called little big shots”.

“I grew up performing, and I know how rewarding it is to entertain people. But in ‘Little Big Shots, you wouldn’t expect what the kids can do, their wit, and they are all very charming”.

Kids aged two to twelve will be front and center on ‘Little Big Shots’. Each of these kids has some innate skill and ability waiting to be unleashed, not to mention their big personalities that will endear with the national audience.

Fresh off a successful season of ‘The Voice Teens’, the big question surrounding ‘Little Big Shots’ is whether or not they can follow up its predecessor’s popularity. Then again, considering ABS-CBN’s rich history of adapting successful franchised programs, putting ‘Little Big Shots’ on the map should not be a problem.

Expect plenty of thrills from these kids as they put their talents to the test on ‘Little Big Shots’. After all, viewers of all ages can’t help but be excited with the kids’ hidden abilities and personalities.

‘Little Big Shots’ airs every Saturday after ‘Home Sweetie Home’ and Sunday after ‘Goin’ Bulilit’ on ABS-CBN.

    • Obvious naman kasi that the TeeNig special last weekend was the curtain call of The Voice Teens for the season, and as a result, there’s lack of interest compared to the finale weekend. Alam na kasi na tapos na ang season ng The Voice Teens that’s why viewers had no reason to watch the season-ending concert special.

      Its uninspiring ratings also affected the shows that either preceded or followed TeeNig. But it didn’t matter since its rival GMA shows fared worse.

      By the way, anong rerun ep ni Toni ang tinutukoy mo? Better be specific.

  1. Gab says:

    It was supposed to be hosted by Ogie Alcasid (according to Pep), but the franchise holders wants Billy Crawford to host the show (because of his great hosting skills) kaya siya ang host nito ngayon.

    • No offense to Ogie, but Billy has had the experience in these franchised programs. Maybe someday Ogie will have his own show on Channel 2 but for now focus muna siya sa music.

      • R4nce Rood says:

        Better for him to transfer back to GMA-7 where her wife belongs and when he started showbiz. Since ABS-CBN doesn’t really prioritize him, With a bigger pool of talents in ABS-CBN, Most of the time, work can be given to others instead of him.

      • Ogie actually started with ABS-CBN in the early 90s. He only moved to GMA somewhere in the late 90s.

        Even if he returns to GMA, his talents there would go to waste. GMA’s entertainment group has had plenty of issues to face, and that poor working environment won’t help him. At least in ABS, even with just a few opportunities, he feels safe and secure. Also, he’s solely focused on his musical career at this point, that’s why you still see him on either ASAP or It’s Showtime on occasion, whereas on GMA he won’t be able to thrive since they no longer have their own noontime musical variety show.

    • Their finale last weekend did not even crown a seasonal champion, which is unusual for a talent show. But you’re right, they showed fairness to all competitors.

      Now we’re back to a reality/talent show in which the best talent overall wins. And based on the reception of PGT’s first five seasons, the sixth could either be a downgrade or an improvement. Good luck with that.
