|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.|
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.
