MANILA, Philippines – Filipino dance group Junior New System got the Golden Buzzer from the judges, and automatically secured a spot in the grand finals on Asia’s Got Talent.
They joined fellow Filipino singer Gwyneth Dorado, who also made it to the grand finals by public vote.
Upon winning, one of the members dedicated their dance to the Philippines, saying, “Para sa Pilipinas po ‘to talaga!” (This [performance] is for the Philippines!)
Before they were selected, judge Van Ness Wu said that the group was his favorite performance in this round, saying that he remembered his own love for dancing through them.
They danced to a mash-up of pop songs for their performance, dressed in striped red shirts and sported heels. (READ: Melanie C on the Spice Girls and PH stars on 'Asia's Got Talent')
The Golden Buzzer is an opportunity the judges can use to put one act through to the next round. But unlike in the semi-finals, the judges can only put one act through as a unit each episode. – Rappler.com
