Pinoy acts star on Asia’s Got Talent new season premiere


Filipino class acts once again earned both judges’ and audience adoration on Asia’s Got Talent (AGT), receiving 3 yesses and standing ovations.

AGT’s 3rd season premiere aired on television on February 7 had 4 Filipino acts – a dance group from Sampaloc, a sister duet, a father and daughter cheer dancing routine, and a comedian who inserts animal sounds into songs.

The regional edition of the worldwide talent show first aired in 2015 and was dominated by Filipinos – with shadow play group El Gamma Penumbra emerging as the inaugural Grand Champion, Gerphil Flores who won 3rd place, and Junior New System and Gwyneth Dorado joining the finals show. In the 2nd season, DMX Comvaleñoz, a dance group from Compostela Valley finished runner-up.

The four new Filipino acts in the new AGT season received standing ovations like their predecessors from the live audience and judges David Foster, Anggun, and Jay Park during their performances.

On AGT social media, the video of Junior Good Vibes presented with the intro: “Junior Good Vibes from the Philipines give us the feels and good vibes with their high energy dance moves!!” earned the most number of views, nearing 135k as of this writing.

Before performing on the AGT stage, the 15-member dance crew from Sampaloc, Manila spoke in the Filipino language about needing to show their families that they can achieve their dreams. After the performance, judge David Foster remarked:

“There’s 15 unique stories, and all those stories came to life and I felt everything that you guys are feeling and I’m very proud of you.”

HK Sisters, the “100% angelic” duet of teenagers Hannah Korin and Harrah Kaym, sang in classical opera style of the well-known song “Think of Me” from the Phantom of the Opera – earning them resounding cheers and standing ovation from the audience.

In the pre-performance interview, the sisters shared, “Our father is a seafarer so we only see him for about two months and he works on the ship for six to nine months. If we win this, we get to spend more time with him.”

The “cuteness overload” of young cheerdancer Zeexhie and her father awed audiences with the stunts and her professional poses. The cheerdance routine was thrilling and even earned a spot in the “death defying” segment of the AGT recap video.

And although ZooDiva did not get the three yesses to send him (her) through to the next round, the Filipino comedian was commended by the judges for providing entertainment to the show. “Her performance was wild” said AGT social, and you just have to see it to believe it.
