"Pilipinas Got Talent" Featuring Jovit Baldivino and Ezra Band

It was only two weeks ago when Pilipinas Got Talent was launched in Philippine TV and yet it has captivated the nation with powerful performances from ordinary Filipinos from all over the country. True to its promise, the program has showcased what Filipinos are really made of.

The reality show was acquired from the Got Talent franchise which is a British TV format conceived and owned by Simon Cowell’s SYCO Company. And lucky for us it was, this is the only time of the week that people will stop playing computer games or foxy bingo online or whatever it is they normally do. It's a chance for people to sit down with their families and friends to watch some truly great acts.

I’ve watched the two first episodes of the show and I was impressed by some of the performances showing pure talent. One of the first performers who really impressed the judges is a 16-year-old student from Batangas, Jovit Baldivino. The awkward-looking boy sang a heartfelt rendition of Journey’s “Faithfully” that blew away the judges and the live audience. I will not be surprised if this boy will be the next Youtube star like Arnel Pineda as his video now has over 200,000 views.

Another memorable act was that of the Ezra band from Davao Del Sur. The band is composed of a girl vocalist named Kaye and a differently-abled keyboard player. Their soulful version of “Wonderful Tonight” wowed the judges.
