Aiming to help their families and rebuild their school, a group of students from Eastern Samar decided to to join and audition for 'Pilipinas Got Talent' last Sunday in order to do just that.
Clad with blue body paint akin to the famous Avatar, the students of The Eastern Samar State University-Salcedo Campus dance Troupe's performance was truly inspiring and heartwarming to watch.
Their dance was certainly entertaining and pleasing in the eyes of the judges and the whole crowd. Still, it wasn't enough to convince Vice Ganda and Freddie Garcia to fully commend their performance as amazing, as they have felt the students have left something more to be desired.
Watch their dance performance below!
"Kumbaga sa deep-fried chicken, kulang pa sa kulo 'yung mantika para maluto kayo. 'Yung 'pag tiningnan mo, 'Ay, ang sarap sarap na ng manok na'to, lutong-luto na.' Pero 'pag hiniwa mo, may dugo pa sa loob. At 'pag may dugo pa sa loob, ibig sabihin, hilaw pa,"Still, the dance group got two votes from Robin Padilla and Angel Locsin to advance to the next round. But the students' purpose in auditioning eventually convinced Vice Ganda.
Vice commented on the students' performance.
"Kasi gusto kong makatulong sa eskwelahan niyo, kaya gusto ko sana mag-offer ng tulong sa eskwelahan niyo. Kasi iba 'yung 'yes,' iba 'yung... kasi hindi naman 'to Pilipinas Got Awa," Other judges also donated P100,000 each to the group's school. Truly a heartwarming and touching performance from the Yolanda survivors.
