A dancer wowed the audience on “Pilipinas Got Talent” with her dramatic performance but her act was made even more touching because she dedicated it to her son.
At the peak of her career, dancer Kristel De Catalina got pregnant. While this changed a lot of things for the young dancer since she had to put off her career for a while to focus on her son, she had no regrets because she considers the boy as one of the best blessings she received in her life.
Though she had been competing in the international scene in the past, her audition on Pilipinas Got Talent was the first she’s ever done for TV – and it was certainly one of the best performances ever done on the show.
The dramatic dance was quite dangerous as she performs ballet moves on a spinning spiral mounted upside down from the ceiling; yet despite the high level of difficulty, she managed to pull it off and made it appear like it was an easy thing to do!
The judges were definitely impressed with the dance.
“Yung mahirap na bagay, pinagmukha mong napakadali. Napaka-graceful, at gusto ko lang magpasalamat sa’yo for sharing your talent sa amin,” Angel Locsin praised.
“Hanep ‘yung pinakita mong professional ang galaw. Lahat perpekto. Hindi kita nakitang nahirapan ka,” said Robin Padilla.
The two judges as well as Freddie “FMG” Garcia gave Kristel a standing ovation. Does that mean Vice Ganda was not impressed by her moves? On the contrary!
It seems that Vice was so impressed that he was immobilized on his seat. He was all praises to the dancer, even telling her that she healed him as he was sick at the time. Then, he stood up to push the golden buzzer which propels Kristel to the semi-finals!
Congratulations, Kristel. You greatly deserve that golden buzzer.
