MANILA – Actor-host Luis Manzano and international artist Billy Crawford shared their excitement with their first hosting job together.

Manzano and Crawford are the hosts of ABS-CBN's newest talent show, "Pilipinas Got Talent."

“He is my fellow Kanto Boy and it’s always a blast working with him. I think we are two of the most makulit na hosts on TV. Individually pa lang makulit na kami, paano kaya if we are together doing a show?” said Manzano, a self confessed fan of “Britain’s Got Talent (BGT).”

Crawford chimed in: “It’s a pleasure to work with an old friend of mine. We are definitely going to have fun doing the show. We are not really working this time. It’s just boys will be boys and we are just enjoying our time together. And we are definitely excited to do the show.”

Manzano and Crawford will be the counterpart of “BGT” hosts Ant and Dec. They will be using their wits, humor, and charm as they guide PGT hopefuls throughout their journey and perform before a set of judges.

“One thing about the show is anything goes. Kung ano ang kaya mong ipakita sa buong Pilipinas we welcome it. We believe that Philippines has so much talent. Now, it’s their time to shine talaga,” Manzano said.

PGT will hold its first audition at Lyceum of the Philippines University-Batangas this coming November 6, 7 and 8. There will also be auditions in Cebu on November 11, 12, and 13.

In Baguio, the auditions will be on November 19, 20, 21; Cagayan De Oro on November 25, 26, and 27; Davao on November 30, December 1 and 2; and in Manila on December 5,6,12 and 13.
