Meantime, dancing duo Happy Feet and Hip-hop dance group Freestylers were the 2 other grand finalists who comprised PGT’s top 3. They got 18.32% and 9.46% of the text votes, respectively. We also enjoy seeing them perform (the Happy Feet) and listening to their stories but above all Marcelito got the highest performance in the show.
During the PGT’s Performance night on Saturday, the 27-year-old singer from Cavite dubbed as the “Man with the golden female voice” wowed the crowd with his rendition of “The Prayer.”
Marcelito Pomoy, who has been consistently topping PGT’s text votes, received three standing ovations from judges Ai-Ai delas Alas, Kris Aquino and Freddie M. Garcia. The two-part finale featured the spectacular performances of 14 finalists on Saturday and the results night on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
PGT’s most-awaited episode on both nights topped the worldwide trending topics of microblogging site, “Twitter.” Prior to Pomoy, singer Jovit Baldivino was hailed as the PGT’s grand winner last year. Both of them gained confidence rendering their favorite songs. All of the contestants on the season 2 PGT contest performed well. However, only one got the highest text votes and the winner takes it all – 2 million worth of cheque.
