The live semi-final show of Pilipinas Got Talent Season 6 was supposed to be a mind-boggling magic show for the contestant named Jepthah “Wow Magic” Callitong. However, the night turned out to be a mediocre performance for him when his final magic card trick didn’t go smoothly as expected.
In respect to what happened, the celebrity judges, as well as the viewers, weren’t able to mask what they witnessed and immediately voiced out their disappointments after his much-anticipated semi-final performance.
Read what the Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin said:
“Jepthah, mas masarap ka panoorin as ikaw kaysa ‘yung sa magic mo. Magaling ka mag-magic, ah! Pero dahil na-overshadow lang ng personality mo…”
“Ang charming at ang sobrang funny mo kaya mas gusto ka nalang naming kakwentuhan kaysa panoorin iyong magic mo. So kahit mayroon tayong hindi nakuhang act sa dulo, lulusot, eh! Kasi nadadala mo kami sa adlibs mo.”
Moreover, the seasoned actor star Robin Padilla also agreed as to what the previous judge said:
“Anak, ako’y na-entertain mo talaga ng higit. Tawa ako ng tawa! Nagawa mo lahat’yung trabaho mo para ma-entertain ako. Pero s’yempre lahat ng tao, mayroon bad day. ‘Yung katapusan ng talent mo medyo sumablay.”
As for the comedian Vice Ganda, he commented on the comic relief of the magician in his magic show.
“Alam mo ikaw, gustong-gusto talaga kita kasi kombinasyon ka ng comedy at totoong magic. Kasi nung auditions nakapag-magic ka talaga ng successful. Mayroon ka nagawa na hindi namin nabuking, and sa dulo ng performance mo lahat kami paano iyon?
“Kaya naman tuwang-tuwa ang mga tao sayo. Kaya isa ka sa mga most viewed na mga performances dito online. Iyong nga lang, hindi siya na-achieve tonight.”
