ABS-CBN opened 2018 with a bang as breathtaking and never-before-seen acts took center stage in the world-class talent search Pilipinas Got Talent on its premiere telecasts last Jan 6 and 7.


The worldwide hit franchise is back on Philippine television to search for the best Pinoy acts from different parts of the country with host Billy Crawford and new host Toni Gonzaga, and judges Freddie “FMG” Garcia, Angel Locsin, Robin Padilla, and Vice Ganda.


Also staging a comeback this year is the coveted Golden Buzzer that automatically puts acts through the semi-final round. For the first time in PGT, hosts Billy and Toni have the power to pick their Golden Buzzer act just like the four judges. Now, a total of five acts can get fast lane tickets to the live semis.


Billy shared that there were times in the past season that he wanted to give someone the Golden Buzzer, and now he can. But he understands that ‘with great power comes great responsibility’. He’s looking for a performance that not only will give him goosebumps, but one that will also genuinely touch the audience’s hearts.


The Golden Buzzer was first introduced to the show in season 5. Each judge can press the Golden Buzzer once, and this is a contestant’s ticket straight to the semi-finals. Power Duo was the first ever performers to earn a Golden Buzzer last season which was given by Robin Padilla. The dancing duo then went on to win it all at the finals as the season’s champion. This season, only on its first episode, Freddie ‘FMG’ Garcia chose Bardilleranz as his Golden Buzzer act.
