Davao acts stood out last weekend and got the first two grand finalist slots in ABS-CBN’s world class talent search “Pilipinas Got Talent.”
After an intense battle of six semi-finalist acts, boy band Next Option emerged as the public’s choice and garnered the most number of votes through text, and for the first time in the country, online via Google.
Dance group Crossover Family, meanwhile, was unanimously chosen by judges Freddie “FMG” Garcia, Angel Locsin, Robin Padilla, and Vice Ganda over singing duo Poor Voice.
Ten more grand finalist slots will be filled in the coming weeks before the much-awaited ultimate showdown of Pinoy acts in “PGT.” This week, watch as belly dancers Angel Fire, singer Derf Cabael, hiphop dance group Mastermind, kiddie acrobats Sto. Tomas Bulilit Generation, dancer Deniel Sarmiento, and lesbian band Lezboys battle it out to win the public and the judges’ votes.
