Watch Baguio Metamorphosis and Ingrid Payaket‘s performance in the semi-finals here:
It looks like the Imusicappella Chamber Choir has been another victim of Kris and Ai Ai’s favoritism. Too bad, it’s part of their job. There’s a huge 8.35% difference between the votes received by Imusicappella and Ingrid Payaket in favor of the chamber choir but the two female judges picked the musical singer from Baguio instead.
I rarely rant in my articles but i have to say that I am one of the thousands who voted for Imusicapella Chamber Choir and I am disappointed that the judges (particularly Kris and Ai Ai) were not able to see why this group received the second highest votes among the 6 acts. They pointed out that two of its female singers went sharp but I think that’s not enough to pull this “ensemble of talents” down. I’m sorry for the fans of Ingrid, I think she’s a good singer, but I’m more entertained with Imusicapella Chamber Choir who showcased more than one talent and we rarely see a show choir who sing acapella on Philippine television. The 26.32% who voted for them saw it too.
Anyway, here are the 12 Grand Finalists of Pilipinas Got Talent:
