How Pilipinas Got Talent Season 3 SHOULD'VE ended.
However, Pilipinas Got Talent is not only a singing contest, and, personally, when I watch the show I look for unique talents, not just singing. That’s why I was rooting for Ruther Urquia and his puppet Titoy during the first season of PGT (I didn’t see season 2, unfortunately).
If you were reading my previous blog, I was also rooting for the non-singer in this contest, El Gamma Penumbra. They ended up 4th place, as you can see by the opinion results below:
1. Maasinhon Trio
2. Khalil Ramos
3. Bringas Brothers
4. El Gamma Penumbra
6. Sandugo Band
7. Twin Divas
8. Renagine Pepito
9. Loverkada Kids
10. Muriel Lomadilla
12. Lucky Twins
I did not agree with the results, but this is what the nation feels, so what can I do? If you ask me, here’s how the top 3 of Pilipinas Got Talent should’ve been.
1. El Gamma Penumbra. As I said, my pick, especially after watching their awesome performance on the Grand Finals night. Their final piece reeked of Pinoy pride, and I hope the Department of Tourism will get these guys and put them to good use ASAP.
2. Muriel Lomadilla. Yeah, she’s a singer, and her voice was amazing during the duration of the contest. Her final performance, in particular, was fantastic. She comes from a family of great singers, in case you didn’t know. Her cousin is a friend of ours…and is a tremendous singer in her own right.
3. Renagine Pepito. Ok, I’m biased on this one, because she’s from my hometown, Cagayan de Oro City. But, seriously, how many 11 year olds do you know can sing like that? Her final piece was a bit of a let-down because it’s unfamiliar to most people and it didn’t showcase her vocal prowess as it should’ve. Her semi-final number was better, and after she performed it, I thought in my heart that she’d not only be in the finals, but she’d be the one to beat, if not the dark horse of the contest.
Special mention goes to Synergy. They were also a very colorful and entertaining group and my 2nd favorite non-singing entry in the contest.
The other groups were also good, and worthy to be on the final stage of this country’s most popular talent show…but these 4 contestants were the strongest in my opinion. Oh, and Loverkada Kids? Man, their performances were too scary to watch sometimes, especially when they swing that kid around. Yikes!!
Hmmm…what were your pics for the PGT3 plum? Do you agree with me? Comments are welcome!
