New Season of Pilipinas Got Talent Premieres This Weekend

Another season of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ awaits.

Now on its sixth season, ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ will once again welcome some of the Philippines’ most unique and breathtaking talents. Whether they can sing, dance or perform spectacular and unusual feats of strength and skill, ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ has them all covered.

Joining in the fun are hosts Billy Crawford and Toni Gonzaga, along with judges Freddie Garcia, Angel Locsin, Robin Padilla and Vice Ganda. Also making its return will be the coveted Golden Buzzer, which will now be used by the hosts as well as the judges to determine which acts will make it straight to the semifinals.

Live auditions for ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ are currently underway, with the Visayas and Mindanao auditions already finished last month. For its opening salvo this weekend, the Metro Manila auditions will be showcased where the judges evaluate the area’s aspirants.

Last season’s ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ saw Power Duo emerge as champion, marking the first time in the show’s history that a non-singer won the competition. It also proved that ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ is more than just a typical sing and dance show, but rather a series in which all unique talents of various fields are given a chance to shine.

If last season was of any indication, then the upcoming sixth season of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ should expect more of the same, if not better. That said, it will be interesting to see how this year’s cast will hold their own in front of both the judges and viewers.

Of course, if anyone performs exceptionally well, then the Golden Buzzer will serve as their ultimate ticket to the highest level of competition. With that, good luck to all the up-and-coming acts who will grace the ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ stage.

‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ season 6 airs every Saturday at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 7:30 p.m. on ABS-CBN.

Pilipinas Got Talent Revived

Turns out ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ is not dead after all.

ABS-CBN made that clear when it aired a teaser for the upcoming fifth season of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’. The network announced that there will be auditions for the said program throughout the month of October, with the final rounds scheduled in early November at the ABS-CBN studios.

The decision to revive ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ came following the successful run of its former contestants on fellow franchisee ‘Asia’s Got Talent’. Season 1 contestant Gerphil Flores finished third, while Season 3 contestants El Gamma Penumbra emerged as the winners.

‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ last aired two years ago, when Roel Manlangit emerged as the winner of Season 4. However, despite the success of the show, many viewers were disappointed in the selection process, as each winner of PGT were singers even though the talent on the show came from different fields.

It was also overshadowed by another franchised show in ‘The Voice of the Philippines’, and its sister show ‘The Voice Kids’. Thanks to the success of the two shows, PGT ended up taking a longer break than anyone expected to see.

Now that ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ is about to return, it remains to be seen whether or not they will be able to recapture the success of the previous four seasons. Not only that, they need to address their tendency to choose singers over other talents, despite the premise of the show that encourages people from all fields of talent to try their luck.

The premiere date of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ season 5 will be determined soon.
