Billy Crawford talks about why 'Pilipinas Got Talent' is still a ratings winner


042811-billy_main.jpgBilly Crawford said that Pilipinas Got Talent continues to get high ratings because the entire team works together for the show to excel. “Sobrang happy naman kami [dahil] sobrang successful. It’s been doing great, ang gagaling pa ng mga sumasali, ang kekenkoy pa ng mga sumasali at may mga kenkoy pa na nakapasok but I think all in all from the team, from the staff, from the director, the hosts, the writers, are [all] good,” he explained.

The international singer added that he is flattered that people keep on complimenting his good chemistry with Luis Manzano as co-hosts of PGT. He pointed out that aside from being good friends, his team-up with Luis has gotten better because they have hosted other shows together, such as Panahon Ko ‘To: Ang Game Show ng Buhay Mo and the first season of PGT.

Billy also answered some previous comments from viewers about supposed “discrimination” of some PGT contestants. For instance, there was this one time when a contestant was performing and Billy threw a chair on stage near the contestant. Billy said that he and Luis also make fun of themselves on the show.“Sinasabi [ni Ai-Ai de las Alas] nakakasayang ka ng oras, sayang lang ang two minutes na nandun magpakitang-gilas [ako sa stage] pero ‘yun lang pala ipapakita mo. Pero pampasaya lang, pang-kulitan lang,” he said.

The singer-host also divulged some details of the planned Kanto Boys movie (The Kanto Boys is made up of Billy, John Lloyd Cruz, Vhong Navarro, and Luis). “Sabi ko, hindi ako sure until nandun kami nagsu-shooting for the first day… It started out as sitcom pagkatapos [ginawang] pelikula, so marami-rami [ang napag-usapan] and more than anything, happy kami kasi barkada, close kami as a team, as friends so what more sa pelikula?
