I have posted some… couple of words about it, but still, lemme’ go on a beastmode on this shit.
I would agree on the other two being the judge of Pilipinas Got Talent — Vice Ganda and Freddie Garcia, eventhough though I hate Vice Ganda. In fairness naman kay Vice Ganda, may pinatunayan naman sa stage performances at music kahit overrated siya as recording artist. Not so much with Robin Padilla, eventhough musical talent runs in Padillas’ blood. He can really sing, he has a very amazing stage presence when doing a song number, and he can do drums. The only problem about Robin Padilla is his habit na nang-iiwan na lang siya sa ere sa bawat show na sinasalihan niya. Also, I hate his presence when doing a hosting job. A host should be relaxed, not stiff and hard. Robin is stiff. Tama na ang ‘siga presence’ on stage! Nakaka-bad vibes eh.
But Angel Locsin?!?
Putang Ina guys! Tawagin niyo akong bitter at insekyorang Kapuso fan pero Angel Locsin as one of the judges? Pang-ilang beses na bang katangahang judgement ng Kapamilya network ito? Fine! Angel has improved a lot in acting… pero sa drama lang naman, because there are things on her comedy part that needs to be improved. She is awkard at hosting and responding to banters (kaya nga pinamatamaan siya ni Angelica Panganiban sa Twitter kasi sablay sa timing, na kung hindi hihirit si Pooh, beastmode na naman ang mga fantards ni Angel!). She could not sing, so much that on some occasions, she has her ghost singer. Lastly, she is absolutely cringe-inducing in dance performances. ‘Day, ang pagsasayaw ay hindi puro pa-sexy, pa-ikot-ikot ng ulo, at pakembot-kembot! First, you need to be adaptable at vigorous dance moves, and a lot of expressions is required when you do a dance number, kasi kapag sumasayaw si Angel, halatang hindi niya ine-enjoy ang ginagawa niya. Wala akong maramdaman everytime she dances.
I would understand if Angel will be one of the mentors or one of the judges for the likes of Star Circle Quest, because the said talent search revolves around not just singing, dancing but also acting. Pilipinas Got Talent, on the other hand, merely revolves around singing, dancing and performance arts on-stage, so TV and Silverscreen performances is not being focused on any Got Talent franchises. Therefore, if a certain talent search show focuses only on musical stage performances — singing and dancing — as well as performing arts, then better hire someone who has expertise on those aspects, and if there is any stint on these, he/she should have done a great job on it. Kung may “Got Talent” na franchise na only revolves on TV and silverscreen acting alone, ‘eh ‘di doon na lang si Angel!
Of course, dapat nga matuwa pa ako kasi si Angel kahit papaano may skill. Si Kris Aquino, wala. Still, katangahan move from ABS-CBN!
I am not a fan of any talent search shows anymore because it just ends up exploiting its contestants all for the sake of fucking TV ratings, and even if I did not follow Asia’s Got Talent that much, I did a checking on the judges of the said show and all I can say is, the judges themselves have proven A LOT in music industry, musical stage performances, and performance arts.
May mga pinatunayan!
Of course, I will hear belittling comments from Kapamilya-tards out there, disputing the likes of Anggun and Melanie Chisolm. Too bad for those bitches, because they never grew up watching MTV and getting to see the likes of Anggun and Mel C. Kung batang 90’s kayo at nanonood kayo ng MTV sa cable (sa cable ha! Hindi sa Studio 23!). Si Melanie Chisolm, sa grupong Spice Girls lang naman siya, (smirking at Kapamilya twats). Si Anggun, sa kantang Snow on Sahara. Kawawa naman ang hindi nakapakinig sa kantang niyan~~~!!!
Since nakakatamad magkwento sa mga hinayupak, heto ang Wikipedia pages nina Melanie at Anggun:
Wala nang intro-intro para kay David Foster. Kilala na siya ‘eh! Discoverer ni Charice Pempengco? Lalo na si Vanness Wu, isa iyan sa mga tinitingala sa Chinese pop music alongside Coco Lee, Show Luo and Jay Chou.
Of course, comparing is offensive, but if we are going to do a comparison between the judges of Pilipinas Got Talent vs. Asia’s Got Talent, walang panama ang mga hurado ng Pilipinas Got Talent. They are the same people (I actually pertaining to Kris Aquino and Ai-Ai de las Alas) who eliminated Gerphil Flores in the fourth semifinal week (except Freddie M. Garcia na, in fairness, kahit sa business-related stuff lang naman naka-focus si FMG, marunong talagang kumilala ng talagang TALENTED at marunong kumilatis ng talagang HIGHLY-SKILLED SA CRAFT so I must say, EXCEPTIONALLY LOGICAL si FMG). Unfortunately, Gerphil achieved MORE than what she could attain in Asia’s Got Talent, eventhough she only landed third-place. Sobrang layo sa ma-a-attain niya sa Pilipinas Got Talent.
At lalo naman kung itabi ang bagong set ng judges ng PGT Season 5 sa AsGT. Screen each of the judges of each franchise, and it will make you realize that all judges of AsGT are far respectable enough, because sa panig ng PGT Season 5, hindi mo talaga marerespeto ang isang Vice Ganda.
Lastly, if Angel Locsin is only after great attitude… oh well, it is not that I am dismissing the importance of good attitude but if you are going to merely focus on that one, ditching on genuine talent, ‘eh di ‘matik, lahat pwede na palang manalo sa Pilipinas Got Talent kahit ang talent lang naman ay magpaawa at magpa-cute. Instant, pwede na pala ako maging champion basta ba bait-baitan lang ako. Saint-levels much? Kung ganun at magpapaka-Santa lang din ako, ‘dun na lang ako sa Vatican. Hindi sa talent show. Hindi na nga humahalimaw sa talent, hindi pa genuine ang talent niya (hinasa lang naman ng workshop. Iba pa rin kapag may talent ka talaga), kulang sa attitude at spunk kapag nagpe-perform sa stage, nakaka-putang-ina pa ang kasablayan niya sa logic. NgaNga nga siya kapag sumasagot ng interview eh. Hindi spontaneous.
Hmmm… inaasahan kong babahain ako ng galit ng mga “Ngiwe-tards”, na kesyo mabait si Angel, ganito ganyan. ‘Tang Ina niyo! Anyone can be mabait but being talented is NOT!
