Top-rating talent show Pilipinas Got Talent will have a new set of judges when its 5th season premieres later this month on ABS-CBN. From the three original judges, namely Freddie M. Garcia, AiAi Delas Alas and Kris Aquino, only Garcia will continue to sit on the judging panel. Delas Alas has transferred to another network while Aquino has begged off from the project due to health reasons.
Joining star-maker Garcia on the judging table are versatile actress Angel Locsin, premier actor Robin Padilla and phenomenal star Vice Ganda.
Padilla has hosted a similar show in TV5 and it is interesting to see him on the judging panel. Vice, on the other hand, has been a hurado in It's Showtime's Magpasikat segment and could inject his brand of witty and sometimes "controversial" humor to the show. Fans are excited to see how Locsin fares in this kind of show.
Billy Crawford and Luis Manzano will continue their hosting duties. Pilipinas Got Talent is set to premiere on January 23, 2016.
