OPM icon Ogie Alcasid is now a judge of It’s Showtime’s singing competition Tawag ng Tanghalan.
He appeared on the episode of ABS-CBN’s noontime variety show earlier today, December 10.
Ogie performed a duet of “Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang” and “Dito sa Puso Ko” with host Vice Ganda.
Hosts Anne Curtis, Billy Crawford, and Amy Perez then welcomed Ogie as a new judge in the contest.
The former GMA-7 talent admitted, “Excited ako. Excited akong marinig ang magagandang tinig ng ating mga contender.”
Anne then asked him if will he be strict in choosing the winner.
He answered, “Basta ako hinahanap ko yung experience na mararanasan ko sa performance ng tao.
“Alam mo kasi, yung pagkanta dito, hindi biro yun, e. Maraming saloobin yung contender diyan e, yung experience niya sa buhay niya.
“Siyempre, magiging teknikal din tayo but I think the most important thing is experience. Na-communicate ba niya yung gusto niyang sabihin dun sa awiting yun.”
Ogie’s Tawag ng Tanghalan stint serves as the new Kapamilya’s first regular show in the Kapamilta network.
It was previously announced that Ogie will also be one of the judges of ABS-CBN’s reality-variety show Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids during the network’s trade launch last November 22.
