PHOTO CAPTION: Pilipinas Got Talent judges (L-R) Ai-Ai delas Alas, Kris Aquino and Freddie M. Garcia will choose from the Top 36 from the 187 acts who auditioned this season.
PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
"Every season, tension fills the Judges Cull round where the judges of ABS-CBN's talent-reality show Pilipinas Got Talent select the auditionees who will advance and compete in the much-awaited semi-final round. This is very evident in PGT's TV plug that showed judge Freddie "FMG" Garcia about to walk out of the set during deliberations.
"What happened during the Judges Cull? Did FMG really walk out? Who among the 187 acts who received the judges' votes will become one of the 36 official semi-finalists this season? Watch Pilipinas Got Talent, hosted by Luis Manzano and Billy Crawford, every Saturday, 9PM, and Sunday, 8:30 PM on ABS-CBN."
