Pilipinas Got Talent (PGT) once again promises to showcase amazing Filipino acts on its fourth season, which will start tonight, February 16.
PGT host Luis Manzano told the media how the fourth installement will be different from the past seasons during its press conference earlier this week.
“Siguro ‘yong treatment in itself.
“Let’s put it this way, modesty aside po, when they had us preview the pilot episode, ang management po and kami po, kahit alam na naman kung ano ang mangyayari ay napapalakpak po kami.
Then, he assured that, “It’s gonna be something that’s completely different from seasons 1, 2, and 3.
“Sabi nga namin, if you think you’ve figured out what gonna happen in Pilipinas Got Talent, you’re wrong po.
“It’s gonna be something different.”
While it can be expected that there would be singers and dancers who would try their luck on PGT, judge Freddie “FMG” Garcia said, “This season, as much as possible, we tried to get a variety of acts.
“Most of the times we have singers and dancers so, they really roamed the country to find different acts.”
PGT team did not only look for new talents in the country, they also held auditions in different countries to give chance to talented Filipinos outside the Philippines.
These included USA, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, the Middle East, Europe, Canada, Australia, and Guam.
The best acts from each territory flew in the country to face the Big Three Judges—Queen of All Media Kris Aquino, Comedy Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas, and ‘The Expert’ Freddie “FMG” Garcia.
Other hopefuls were also able to audition right at their very homes by via PGT’s online auditions in partnership with Cge.tv.
Another new thing about PGT is its Quarter Finals.
PGT hopefuls will face the Big Three judges in the audition stage and impress them with their acts.
Once they make the cut they will automatically be shortlisted among the contestants to be included in the Judges Cull, where the judges will determine 36 acts that will advance to the Quarter Finals.
For six weeks, six acts will be pitted against one another in a talent showdown, where only two will make it through— one chosen via viewers’ text votes and one by the judges— to complete the roster of semi-finalists.
The 12 semi-finalists will again battle it out in the Semi-Final round until only six of them make the last and final cut of the competition to formally enter the Final round.
Who will be the fourth grand winner of Pilipinas Got Talent?
Pilipinas Got Talent 4 will air every Saturday, beginning February 16, after Maalaala Mo Kaya, and every Sunday, after Rated K on ABS-CBN.
