Billy Crawford reportedly hosting 2nd season of ABS-CBN's "Pinoy Dream Academy"

Apr 24, 2008
International singer Billy Crawford is reportedly hosting the second season of Pinoy Dream Academy without the knowledge of his manager and the executives of GMA-7.


Billy Crawford might be another possible surprise transferee from GMA-7 to ABS-CBN.

Lumabas sa pahayagan ngayong araw, April 23, na nagulat ang mga nakapanood sa trade presentation na ginawa ng ABS-CBN para sa kanilang advertisers. Kabilang kasi sa mga programa nila sa second quarter ng taon ang second season of Pinoy Dream Academy (PDA), na ihu-host diumano ng Fil-Am international artist na si Billy Crawford.

Ang lumalabas kasing balita noon ay si Ryan Agoncillo ang maghu-host ng PDA. Pero sa trade launch ay si Billy ang ipinakita together with Toni Gonzaga and Nikki Gil.

Tatawag pa lang sana ang PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sa isang executive ng GMA-7 na malapit Billy to verify this news. Pero ang naturang executive ang tumawag sa amin asking if we were in the trade show. We said no at nabalitaan lang namin ito. So we asked back if this is true.

"Hindi ko nga alam, waiting na lang kami sa pagbabalik niya [Billy] dito for his second show on GMA-7 [Dance Match]. Nagpaalam lang siya na may gagawin siya sa States, 'tapos eto na. May show na pala siya sa kabila [ABS-CBN]," sabi sa amin ng Kapuso executive.

We asked the GMA-7 executive kung may existing contract na ba si Billy for his second reality show in their network after Move, na na-announce na noon pang November. Wala pa raw, pero napag-usapan na ito and, in principle, Billy has accepted the show.

Tinanong namin kung alam na ito ni German "Kuya Germs" Moreno, Billy's mentor since That's Entertainment days.

"Masamang-masama ang loob niya," sabi ng executive. "Ni ha, ni ho hindi man lang nagpasabi sa kanya ‘tapos sa diyaryo na lang din niya ito mababalitaan. Alam mo naman, ang laki ng naitulong ni Kuya Germs kay Billy ‘tapos hindi man lang siya masabihan nito."

But more than Kuya Germs, ultimong ang manager ni Billy na si Raul Laurente ay nagulat sa balita dahil hindi niya rin daw ito alam.

Bilang panghuli, we asked the reaction of GMA Network about Billy's alleged transfer.

"So he transferred. So he's doing that show. Okay," ang sagot lang nila.
