Pilipinas Got Talent Season 4: Third Quarter Finals

The third quarter finals night of Pilipinas Got Talent season 4 was held om April 20 to 21, 2013 where six acts competed for the fifth and sixth slots for the semi-finals.
The third set of quarter finalists of Pilipinas Got Talent (L-R): Florendo Macalma Jr., Symmetry, Randy de Silva, MP3 Band, Michael "Mifer" Fernando and Tahanang Walang Hagdan Wheelchair Dancesport and BMG Dancers.
The wheelchair dancesport group from Cainta, Rizal, Tahanang Walang Hagdang Wheelchair Dancesport and BMG Dancers did a great job from their auditions to the quarter finals. They have the clean and sophisticated dance routine with the use of wheelchairs as well with their ballroom dancers. They showed hope and inspiration because of their talent and it is proven that being handicapped had their own capacities and strengths to show their talent to the world.

Florendo "Randy" Macalma Jr. did his best job in entertaining the audience as the first act who showed dog tricks in the live shows of Pilipinas Got Talent. He had his passion in loving the dogs by training them and showing communication to his pets. He got the perfect song choice for his routine as well with the movements showed by his different dogs including the Poodle and Mini Pincher. 

The acoustic trio from Davao City, MP3 Band did a new twist for delivering an acoustic music. They have the singer, guitarist and beatboxer combined into one band. They are consistent since auditions up to the quarter finals. In the auditions, they have the mash-up of "Yugyugan Na" by P.O.T. plus instrumental renditions of the theme from "Mission Impossible" and the opening intro of "Hotel California" by Eagles where the judges impressed by their performance. In the quarter finals, they truly leveled up with their acoustic mash-up from instrumental accompaniments of "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson and the theme of "Pink Panther" plus their rendition of "Mahirap Talagang Magmahal ng Syota ng Iba" by APO Hiking Society. They have that cool performances which is something new for the mainstream in the music industry.

The five pairs of twins combined into dance crew, Symmetry from Davao City. They are not just your ordinary dance crew but they have the synchronized choreography and precision in their dance routine plus the energetic moves and the packaging. They received a standing ovation during the quarter finals because of the simple but extraordinary choreography in a mirror dance that they have. 

Randy de Silva, the singer from Olongapo City did a very good job in singing Michael Jackson songs as well with the packaging which reminds me of Michael Jackson. Exactly, because they are similar in terms of their looks. He is a familiar face in singing contests in TV especially he joined in Little Big Star where he competed with Charice and Sam Concepcion eight years ago. During his auditions, he sang "She's Out of my Life" where he didn't reach the high notes. However, he improved a lot in the quarter finals with his rendition of "The Way You Make Me Feel" where he proved that he can sing and dance plus he got the showmanship.

The last act of the night was the magician from Las Pinas City, Michael "Mifer" Fernando. He did a funny magic routine with his assistants where they are good actors in presenting a magical comedy routine. In fact, it is one of the memorable auditions in the fourth season and they have the humorous impact. In the quarter finals, Mifer showed his serious side through illusions and teleportation from the stage to the audience. In other words, Mifer is such a very good magician as well with his assistants.

In the results night, MP3 Band won the public vote and got the fifth semi-finals slot while Symmetry got the sixth spot in the semi-finals where they won the judges vote.

Next week, you will going to witness the fourth quarter finals night. Watch out for The Can-can Dance Group of Regidor Elementary School, The Fluma Viron of Cuerdas, Lumina, D' Intensity Breakers, Tito Cris Castro and Russell Figueroa as they battle it out for the seventh and eighth slot in the semi-finals.

Pilipinas Got Talent Season 4: Second Quarter Finals

The second quarter finals of Pilipinas Got Talent Season 4 held on April 13 to 14, 2013 where it is an emotional night among the contestants especially during the results night. 
The second batch of semi-finalists (L-R): Zilent Overload, John Neil Roa, Eumee Lyn Capile, SI.CO.GU., Sundee Vinas and EYX Point. 
The first act was Sinag Color Guards or SI.CO.GU. from Pasig City. This flag twirling group did an amazing job during their auditions with their flawless flag twirling routine plus their colorful flags and costumes. They did a good job in the quarter finals and they remain consistent.

The young crooner from Cebu City, John Neil Roa came back after he auditioned in second season but failed to make it in the top 36. He serenaded the audience with his renditions of "L-O-V-E" by Nat King Cole and "For Once In My Life" by Stevie Wonder during quarter finals. He's got the charming look that girls will surely fall in love with plus a classic voice for standards and ballads. He is a versatile performer and he truly never give up in reaching his dreams.

The sword balancer and belly dancer from Taal, Batangas, Sundee Vinas did a great job in her auditions because of her balancing of a sword plus a sexy appeal and moves of a belly dancer. During the quarter finals, her act is more dangerous because of balancing a sword using her body parts and sexier belly dancing which is proven that she leveled-up her performance.

The acrobatics trio from Caloocan City, EYX Point did a consistent and amazing acrobatic acts from auditions to semi-finals. They have the balancing and the coordination for their act.

Eumee Lyn Capile of Valenzuela City is not just your ordinary singer. She's got the packaging, the soulful and powerful voice, and the swag to perform. She performed "Dancing in the Moonlight" by Katy Perry in her auditions which showed her talent in singing upbeat songs. During the quarter finals, she delivered a blazing performance of "Girl on Fire" by Alicia Keys which brought her to the top 12.

The black light dance crew from Pasig City, Zilent Overload received a standing ovation from the judges and the crowd with their energetic dance routine matched with their groovy song choices. They truly light up the stage with their colorful props and the precision in their choreography. They are visually entertaining and captivating and they are one of the acts who did an amazing job with their black light dance routine.

In the end, Zilent Overload made it to the semi-finals where they got the highest number of text and online votes while Eumee Lyn Capile won the judges vote. 

Pilipinas Got Talent Season 4: First Quarter Finals Night

Pilipinas Got Talent once again is back for its new season, plus there are changes in the show's competition format. For the first time, the top 36 will be the Quarter Finals round where the twelve acts for Semi-finals will be chosen for six weeks. Then, the top 12 semi-finalists will compete for the six slots for the Grand Finals to determine the season 4 champion of Pilipinas Got Talent. 

Definitely, the top 36 acts this season is not more on the singers, but there are fourteen dance acts, seven singers, three musical acts and twelve variety acts which include magic acts, animal tricks, stunts, gymnastics, acrobatics and flair tending. They are truly deserving in that round and they have that impressive auditions.

Let us have a review of the first quarter finals night which was held on April 6 to 7, 2013.
The first batch of semi finalists (L-R): Segutier Triplets, The Miss Tres, Security and Escort Battalion Combo of the Philippine Army, All In One Crew, Marvin Arquero and Chaeremon Basa.
The first act to open the night is the transgender singing trio from Bulacan, The Miss Tres. They have the looks of beautiful and glamorous girls but they have the surprising and masculine voice of a male singer. They sang "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Elvis Presley. The song choice truly fitted for them but I never forget their shocking auditions with their rendition of "Sex Bomb" by Tom Jones. They are confident and they know how to move in stage while singing. 

Chaeremon Basa from Bacolod City is the first flair tending act who make it to the top 36 after three seasons. He had that flawless and careful flair tending skills as well with the fact that it is synchronized to the music. He's got that blazing performance in the semi-finals where he added fire in the table plus the synchronized movements of bottles in a flair tending. In addition, he is enjoying in his performance which is contagious and he is consistent from his auditions.

The black light dance group from General Trias, Cavite All In One Crew light up the stage with their energetic choreography. They did a clean, sparkling and glowing dance routine since auditions up to quarter finals. However, there are few technical problems during quarter finals but they did a good job in performing.

The musical ensemble from Taguig City, The Security and Escort Battalion Combo of the Philippine Army did an energizing accompaniment of "Proud Mary" by Tina Turner during auditions. They have that lively music from the Big Band era especially the brass section as well with the lead singer knows how to perform in front of the crowd. In the semi-finals, they performed "The Cup of Life" by Ricky Martin and they still remain consistent in terms of musicality.

The martial arts trio from Iloilo, Segutier Triplets did a Pinoy martial arts routine in the form of arnis. They have the synchronized movements plus the exciting fight scenes and stunts for their age. I hope that they encourage more children and teenagers to engage in martial arts especially in arnis.

Marvin Arquero, also known as Papa P. (stands for Payong, a local word for umbrella) did an impressive auditions. The magician from Bulacan showed an amazing magical act using umbrellas to tent, imagine from smallest umbrella changes into regular size then the huge and colorful tents used in stands and stores. In the semi-finals, he showed other magical tricks aside from umbrellas. 

In the end, Chaeremon Basa got the highest number of votes from text and online while Miss Tres got a unanimous votes from the judges to make it to the top 12.
