Pilipinas Got Talent, just like its counterpart talent shows all over the world, highlights breathtaking, sometimes unimaginable performances.

Through the years, we indeed were enthralled by these show-stopping performances by PGT contestants, who never fail to amaze us.

Case in point is Season 5 of the phenomenal program with the following acts who thrilled and captivated us.

12 Finalists:


1. Next Option

This boy band’s swooning rendition of Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches” brought us kilig, yet they failed to impress the judges. However, their impact on the viewers remained unquestionable.

2. The Chosen Ones

They could be the cutest and youngest band ever in the world, but they proved that they could keep pace with the older contenders in that season.

3. UA Mindanao

Their death-defying and heart-stopping motocross stunts made our mouths gaped all throughout. Although it ended up with an accident, the show must go on for the brave, daredevil riders of Kidapawan City, Cotabato.

4. Sto. Tomas Bulilit Generation

Set in an under the sea theme, it was an absolutely mystifying production because of these kiddos’ mesmerizing capability to bend their bodies and do complicated stunts. Their costumes, makeups, and props popping in bright hues made it extra spectacular.

5. Dino Splendid Acrobats

The six-piece acrobat act definitely saved the best for last as they provided a delightful and breathtaking show during the final showdown, showcasing every marvelous stunt that they could offer to the audiences.

6. Crossover Family

These mighty Davaoeños obviously gave a hint that ‘change is coming’ that season as they wowed the audiences with a heart-pounding and powerful performance that set the PGT stage ablaze.

7. Power Impact Dancers

They used to be belittled in the previous rounds, but the Power Impact dancers proved that they could be the best of the best with their synchronized, precise, and electrifying movements that totally amazed everyone. 

8. Kurt Philip Espiritu

This teenage boy got the spectators smitten with his strong appeal and spell-binding voice. He might not possess the most powerful voice nor the most spectacular performance that season, but he still won a lot of hearts.

9. Mastermind

Their flawless and eye-catching multitrack choreography won the hearts of the audiences, but the jurors were unsure if what they showcased was enough for them to win the crown.

10. Ody Sto. Domingo

A magic with a heart. That’s how Robin Padilla described the presentation of this Manileño who amazed us with his faultless and spectacular tricks set in a sentimental mood as he paid tribute to his deceased mom.

11. Amazing Pyra

Rain or shine, the show must go on for the fiery representative of Antipolo City who dared to play with fire despite not being allowed by her doctor to perform due to health issues complicated by inclement weather at that time.

12. Power Duo (Winner)

Anjanette and Gervin successfully convinced us to believe in love again through their poignant and passionate interpretations of some love songs, which gained them judge Robin Padilla’s Golden Buzzer and the Grand Winner trophy during the Final Showdown.
