ASIA'S GOT TALENT : THE PHILIPPINES



THEY ARE THE FIRST EVER CONTESTANTS IN ASIA'S GOT TALENT 2015 AND WERE FORTUNATE TO BE MOVED TO THE SEMI FINALS.

VOTE FOR THEM ONLINE IN ASIA'S GOT TALENT WEBSITE AND SUPPORT FILIPINO TALENTS

BROWSE UNTIL THE END OF THIS PAGE SO YOU COULD GET TO WATCH THE GRAND FINAL PERFORMANCE OF EVERY FILIPINO CONTESTANTS
& PLEASE VOTE!



JUNIOR NEW SYSTEM
They were the first contestant during the World Premiere of Asia's Got Talent based in Singapore. Our very own group of dancers showcased their talent in dancing, flipping, acrobatics, and many other dance routines. What a way to open the show with fun and entertainment. This is the reason why they got a full standing ovation! Even David Foster, the so-called Dream Crusher in the show stood up and congratulated these youngsters.

They joined several talent shows in the Philippines and the group was able to be included in the semis. Joining in Asia's Got Talent is considered their first time to audition overseas.




GWYNETH DORADO
She can be called the Taylor Swift of the Philippines when she reaches her teens. You can look for her in youtube.com and you'll find her singing in tune in various events.  She is the girl who knows what she wants and what she would like to pursue in the coming years.





EL GAMMA PENUMBRA
Eversince they joined Pilipinas Got Talent, the name of their group has never been forgotten. With their uniqueness, creativity, emotionally driven and inspirational performances, and what not, I am betting for this group to be included in the Top 3. Go! Go! Go! They are the first contestant to be selected to proceed to the semi finals through the Golden Buzzer. Meaning, there is no need for the judges to select who will move to the semis; they go straight to the semi finals!



Below is the performance they showed promoting the beauty of the Philippines. Amazing! It gives me goosebumps all the time I watch this! Wish they would use this in the semi-finals. Whether it's only for 2 minutes or 4 minutes, they can give you the best of various worlds right in front of you!



THE MISS TRES
The talented comic trio! They are transgenders but they are really very talented and funny. Complete entertainment and your time will not be wasted watching them!

And Vanness Wu, he can still remember a few Filipino words ever since he visited the Philippines in 2004 with the original F4 members and his solo concert.




ANGELICO "ECHO" TRINIDAD
The little boy who can sing like the Bee Gees!




D' INTENSITY BREAKERS
Another dance group that can flip and can jump high, with fire rings as props, they are great!



THE VELASCO BROTHERS
The Acrobatic Pop Dancers. Vaness Wu even wanted to become like them!



NEIL 'THE HUMAN BEATBOX"
There are so many amazing Beatboxers in the Philippines who can play 5 to 10 instruments altogether in one music with their mouths. And Neil is one of them!



GERPHIL FLORES
This you have got to see! She sings operatic and pop and she can sing the lyrics with clarity. Even the teens and young adults were moved with the way she performed. Another Golden Buzzer by David Foster! Now, could he have found a new talent from the Philippines next to Charice Pempengco? Oh, what a pride it is to have her in his shows and albums! She and Josh Groban can sing a duet in one of David's concerts!




FITRI CERADO 
Just like the other Filipino contestants that performed in Asia's Got Talent, Fitri has got what it takes to be in the Semi-finals. She can sing while playing the piano and yet she can control her voice and reach for the right notes.






FE AND RODFIL
Fe can sing rock in style, with her comedian partner, Rodfil. He took Fe with him so that he could also help her be discovered along with his funny antics.





SEMI-FINALS



First Batch


THE VELASCO BROTHERS






GWYNETH DORADO



SECOND BATCH


JUNIOR NEW SYSTEM
(They received the Golden Buzzer. They will not be included in the votation anymore, instead they will advance automatically to the Grand Finals!)

If you are wondering how come they got straight into the Finals, take a closer look at their shoes--they've got heels! And yet, they are straight young men (Teens!) who have practiced wearing high-heels and dance like crazy and do the sommersaults without any issues with balancing! What a performance!





Kindly adjust the settings to high (720 or more) if you think the video is quite blurry.



GERPHIL FLORES


She's 24 years old. Her singing has always been flawless, that's why everybody is always impressed by her singing performances. Listen well, and despite singing in operatic tune, she is always in tune and she sings clearly. I wouldn't be surprised if next time, David Foster will include her as one of his talents in the future. Looking forward to that!
