"AGT 3" contender Philip Galit inspired by Pia Wurtzbach

26 Mar – "Asia's Got Talent 3" grand finals contender Philip Galit recently admitted that he would not have been in the competition if not for Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach.

As reported on ABS-CBN, Galit, who is one of the few who secured a place in the grand finals of the third season for his hand shadow performance, shared that he was inspired by Wurtzbach's own journey in the pageant world.

Galit said that he previously failed in both of his auditions for the previous seasons, and that experience mirrored Wurtzbach's own. It is noted that the beauty queen was only able to represent the Philippines at the Miss Universe pageant and win the crown in her third attempt at competing in Binibining Pilipinas.

"I would have given up if I got rejected for the third time. I said, "All right, this is the last time. If this doesn't work, then no more"," he said.

In the same interview, Galit also stated that getting the Golden Buzzer during his audition was important to him, as it proves that he has achieved something big.
