MG7 associate clinches top spot in SGV’s Got Talent Year 5!

Over 3,000 SGVeans filled the World Trade Center in Pasay City to watch an amazing display of talent during the SGV’s Got Talent Year 5 Grand Finals held last 14 June 2016. MGs cheered and supported the 18 performances that qualified from over 150 individuals who auditioned, including those who auditioned from SGV Davao, Cebu and Bacolod.

The finalists crooned and grooved before the audience and judges composed of G-force dance instructor, Ray-an Manglo; Philpop 2013 finalist and recording artist, Lara Maigue; Viva artist, singer and lead in the musical Bituing Walang Ningning, Monica Cuenco; award-winning composer and music producer, Jungee Marcelo; TV personality and member of the dance group, Manoeuvers, Joshua Zamora; actress and singer, Marissa Sanchez; and former lead in the musical Miss Saigon, Ima Castro. The scores were determined by a combination of judges’ votes (60%) and audience votes (40%).

Since SGV is celebrating its 70th anniversary, the top 7 were announced instead of the usual top 3. The Grand Winner, 2nd and 3rd placers walked away with P50,000, P30,000 and P20,000, respectively, while the next four placers received P10,000. A consolation prize of P5,000 was given to the rest of the grand finalists.
