Luis Manzano and Billy Crawford are Hosts of ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’

Actor Luis Manzano and singer Billy Crawford have been selected to host the biggest primetime talent-reality search "Pilipinas Got Talent."

ABS-CBN will tour around the nation to find the Philippines’ best singers, dancers, musicians, and other notable acts regardless of age and gender.

“Luis and I will serve as the contestants’ big brothers here. We will get to know them and their stories, which I think is something the audience should and will really look forward to,” said Billy, who admitted to be a fan of the Got Talent search in the US before coming to Manila last year to host “Pinoy Dream Academy” last year.

Luis and Billy will be the Philippine counterpart of Britain’s Ant and Dec. They will be using their wits, humor, and charm as they guide Got Talent hopefuls throughout their journey and perform before a set of judges.

“I am really excited to host ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’ and of course to work with Billy on a show for the first time. We do Kanto boys in ‘ASAP 09,’ we hang out outside of showbiz, and I think our chemistry is something everyone should watch out for, on we are going to spice up the show with our antics,” said Luis.

“Pilipinas Got Talent” will feature Filipinos in different acts. The show is open to all— regardless of age; be it solo, duo, or group— who got the talent in singing, dancing, acting, or even unique skills such as doing magic, juggling, and stand-up comedy.

Filipinos like Madonna Decena and Charlie Green already proved that Filipinos are talented as they made it to the semi-finals of Got Talent’s most popular format “Britain’s Got Talent.”

“Filipinos are very talented and these talents can be at par with the rest of the world. The burden on deciding who among the hopefuls lies on the judges now. It will not be an easy task for sure,” Billy said.

“And our judges’ credentials are impeccable. They have an eye for talent and the contestants will surely learn and grow as they go through the different stages of the competition. They just need to give it their best and enjoy what they will be doing,” added Luis.

If you think you got what it takes and if you got talent, catch the first leg of “Pilipinas Got Talent” auditions at the Lyceum of the Philippines in Batangas on Nov. 6, 7, and 8. Auditions will also be held on Cebu on Nov. 11, 12, and 13; Baguio on Nov. 19, 20, 21; Cagayan De Oro on Nov. 25, 26, and 27; Davao on Nov 30, Dec. 1 and 2 ; and Manila on Dec 5, 6, 12, and 13.
