The first batch of semi-finalists of ABS-CBN's talent show franchise Pilipinas Got Talent Season 2 or PGT 2 performed live at the PAGCOR Grand Theater in Casino Filipino, Parañaque City, earlier tonight, April 30, 2011. They were composed of 6 contestants namely, Freestylers, Brian Brandy, Light Gauge Acoustic, Madrigal Siblings , Jeremie Tampoy and Rico the Magician.
A dance crew, Freestylers from Laguna, was first to show their act. The group's dance routine amazed the judges and the audience. They also got all praises for their synchronicity.
Next was Brian Brandy, the singing American boy who speaks fluently in Tagalog. The 10-year old's rendition of "May Bukas Pa" captivated judges Kris Aquino and Ai-ai de las Alas however, received a negative feedback from judge FMG who said that he was not that impressed by the act.
Light Gauge Acoustic, a duo of a singer and a guitarist, followed. They did Usher's hit "OMG". Kris and Ai commended the guitarist but weren't that mesmerized by the singer. FMG liked the act, though.
The singing trio of young siblings, Madrigal Siblings, then came next. They were well received by the judges who liked so much their performance of "Ako ay Pilipino".
Blind singer and pianist, Jeremie Tampoy, was then next to perform. This is one of the higlights of tonight's episode since the judges gave her another 30 seconds to perform a much more popular song. She chose Miley Cyrus' "The Climb" which gave the judges goosebumps.
The last to perform was 60-year old Rico the Magician. His lively act which was full-packed with surprises charmed everyone.
