Pilipinas Got Talent Season 2 early favorites

The country's hit talent search show, Pilipinas Got Talent Season 2, is on its second week. PGT 2 is in its early stage, which is the auditions and not yet the elimination round, but hopefuls already showcased great talent that it's as if they are already competing in the semi-finals.

We've followed PGT 2 since February 26, its premiere night, and we were already wowed with the performances of auditionees.

Our early favorites include:
  • Rico the Magician - some people compared him to Alakim, grand-finalist of PGT season 1. Rico, the way we see it, has a different style — he incorporates comedy in magic.
  • Marcelito Pomoy - the guy from Cavite who has a Regine Velasquez-like voice can reach a high pitch without any effort. If you're not going to look at him while singing, you never can tell that it's a man behind a womanly voice.
  • Kervy Salazar - the beatbox artist from Davao who can create more than 8 different sounds/instruments all at the same time.
  • Fernan Santuyo - a young musician who dubs himself as “Madonna Pianista.” He is so good in keyboards that PGT judge Kris Aquino wanted to hire him and bring him home just to play piano.
  • Brian Brady - a foreigner who was adopted by a Filipino couple. He can speak tagalog and can sing OPM songs well despite being pure American by birth. Brian is a potential child star considering that he has the looks and talent.
The rest of contestants are listed on this page.

We will update this post as we continue to watch the auditions. We expect to see more raw talents in PGT 2.
