Guitarist Keith Delleva and breakdancers Velasco brothers officially filled the fifth and sixth finalist slots and will compete in the much-awaited grand finals of ABS-CBN’s nationwide talent-reality show Pilipinas Got Talent.
During the live results night held Sunday, May 16, the 13-year old teen from Pasay City garnered the highest number of text and online votes with 23.95 percent, which gave him a sure shot at the finals.
The brothers from Batangas were the second most voted act with 21.83 percent followed by child crooner Rolando Ng III of Cagayan De Oro who got 20.89 percent of the total votes.
Judge Freddie M. Garcia aka FMG was once again faced with the tough task of deciding who between the two will take the other finalist slot after fellow judge Kris Aquino voted for Rolando while Ai-Ai Delas Alas chose the Velasco Brothers. In the end, FMG gave his vote to the break dancing act.
Kris, upon hearing FMG’s decision, burst into tears feeling sorry for Rolando thus, she made it up to the charming little boy by offering him an acting stint in her primetime series Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo. She said she can play the role of baby Michael, the role Kris’s son James used to play.
"Rolando, you will have a program in ABS-CBN," FMG also quipped.
Keith and the Velasco brothers will join other finalists Jovit Baldivino, Ruther Urquia, Allan "Alakim" De Paz, and Markki Stroem. These six finalists, who happened to be all males, will be part of the top 12 who will battle it out in the grand finals. So far acts who made it to the finals range from goosebumping song performances, jaw-dropping magic tricks, electrifying guitar exhibition, hilarious puppet shows, and a dance act.
This week, the fourth batch of semi-finalists will battle it out for two finalist slots.
