Two emotional and heartfelt performances touched the hearts of both viewers and the judges last weekend as auditions continue in the world-class talent reality show “Pilipinas Got Talent.”

Operatic singer Raynier Dalde burst into tears after judges Freddie Garcia, Angel Locsin, Robin Padilla, and Vice Ganda gave him a standing ovation following his rendition of the popular hit “All of Me.”

When Vice asked why he teared up, Raynier explained that he rarely gets praised and got overwhelmed that they stood for him. Even Angel was trying her best to hold back her tears while she was commenting since she was deeply moved by the performance.

Hopeful Micah Cate, meanwhile, was given a second chance to continue her PGT journey when Vice changed his mind and let her move forward in the competition. The phenomenal box-office star initially said no to the heartfelt rendition of “Beautiful” by Micah, who has a cleft palate, until he realized that he made the wrong decision. Vice, who was already very emotional that time, apologized to Micah and gave her a tight hug.

These were only two of the inspiring stories of triumph that viewers get to watch week by week in “Pilipinas Got Talent.” The Manila leg of auditions is still airing and so far, more than 10 acts made the cut.

One lucky act— the contemporary dancers Power Duo— goes straight to the semi-finals after Robin chose them to be his Golden Buzzer act. They are the first act to receive the Golden Buzz in PGT history.

Since the show aired last January 30, PGT instantly became Filipinos’ newest weekend habit. Last Saturday (Jan 30), it ruled its timeslot hitting 27.5% in national TV rating, beating rival’s 11.4%, according to data from Kantar Media. It also won last Sunday (Jan 31) hitting 28.6% versus rival’s 12.3%.
