Pilipinas Got Talent Season 1: Grand Finals Review

It was almost one year ago when the first season of Pilipinas Got Talent was aired on Philippine TV. We witnessed the auditions from funny but horrible to great talents who emerged in the live performances and even others became Youtube sensation. This year, the second season of international franchise is airing but let us have a review of the contenders who made it to the grand finals of the previous season.
1. Alakim (Magician, Quezon City). He is one of the best contenders in PGT this first season because of using sensitive and delicate butterflies in magic plus he has a strong showmanship and he knows how to catch the attention of the audience through magic. This is not your ordinary magic but it is a fantastic act. In addition, during the grand finals, he used teleportation from stage up to the crowd. 
2. Sherwin Baguion (Singer, Lanao del Sur). He is memorable because of his audition with his father (who used electricity tricks and failed to make it) in his heartfelt performance of Rey Valera's original song "Tayong Dalawa". During the semi-finals stage, he sung Gary Valenciano's "Sana Maulit Muli" but it was not his best performance. However, he's back in the finals singing once again his audition piece for his performance.
3. Markki Stroem (Singer / Musician, Quezon City). With his charm, voice and musical talent, definitely the girls will love him. He got the right song choice, the stage presence and the right performance. He has a great future in local showbiz industry.
4. Ezra Band (Band Troupe, Davao City). Their music is on the mainstream and it is cool to hear. There are members of the band who stand out especially Kaye, the lead singer of the band who has a very good voice which sounded like a male acoustic singer and Nor, the differently-abled keyboard player who has an exceptional skill in accompanying the keyboard. 

5. Velasco Brothers (Breakdancing Crew, Manila). This group is one of the most consistent performers in the show. They have the synchronized choreography, the professional experience (where they worked in Thailand as performers) and the amazing stunts. Their dance act was fantastic which shows stunts and acrobatic movements.
6. Maria Jeline Oliva (Violinist / Multi-talented Musician, Naga City). She's got a raw talent in music at her young age. In addition, she can play 12 instruments especially the violin, piano and drums. Definitely, she is one of the best contestants in terms of technical aspects of performing.
7. Baguio Metamorphosis (Hip-hop and Belly Dancing Group, Baguio City). They have the colorful costumes which jives their choreography plus the choice of song in their dance routine which is so lively.
8.  Jovit Baldivino (Singer).  He definitely deserves to be the winner of this series because of his powerful voice and his style as a rocker. He has a humbling story and he is one of the most consistent contestants in the show because he became a Youtube sensation and a successful recording artist at his young age.
9. Ruther Urquia (Ventriloquist, Las Pinas). His act is definitely entertaining because of the child-friendly concept and humorous punchlines from Ruther and his puppet Titoy. Other puppets like Lolo Teddy and Baby Tomtom are also popular as Titoy. In addition, all ages will definitely entertain with his performance.
10. Ingrid Payaket (Singer, Baguio City). She is the only female soloist who made it to the grand finals. She has a clear voice and diction and her style is resembled to Lea Salonga because of song choice. In her grand finals performance, she performed "On My Own" from Les Miserables where it is the best rendition of the song among the contestants who rendered it in other local singing contests.
11. Keith Clark Delleva (Electric Guitarist / Singer, Pasay). He is a teen heartthrob and a talented musician because he can play the electric guitar passionately and he has a good singing voice. Although he struggled in the semi-finals where he received three buzzes due to technical problems,  he made a rebound in the finale where he proved that he is a talented guy.
12. Luntayao Family (Singing Group, Negros Occidental). They have the powerful voice and nice blending of voices. All of them are very good singers even the members comprise of different ages from  children to adults and they deserve to form a group.  

Great and successful season of Pilipinas Got Talent! More exciting talents for the upcoming seasons.
