‘That’s My Amboy’ ends tonight, lead stars share experiences

The story of Maru and Bryan or ‘MaBry’ ends tonight. Barbie Forteza and Andre Paras are unstoppable in enjoying each other’s company as their primetime show That’s My Amboy gave them a chance to know each other more.

Being together on the set of the series for several months, both Kapuso stars recognized little things about each other that will make them miss one another.

 “She is a person who makes everyone happy and at the same time you will enjoy your work because she is very makulit,” Andre said.

But for Barbie, aside from his timely weirdness and kakulitan, she will always remember her partner in a coffee. “Because he becomes extra hyper when he drinks one,” she playfully said.

On the other hand, the AnBie love team is very grateful how this show gave them growth in their respective careers.

That’s My Amboy, according to Barbie, has given her memorable experiences during the entire production.  Apart from learning how to drive a car on her own for a scene in the series, Barbie shared one lesson she will bring as she continues her acting career—how to take scenes seriously.

 “All thanks to Bb. Joyce [Bernal], I learned how to really understand the script and follow the scene’s objective and emotion,” Barbie said.

For Andre, That’s My Amboy is not only a series about the love story of Maru and Bryan but is about working with a great cast and director.

 “I learned to trust everyone and just have fun with what you’re doing because that’s what will translate on screen,” he said.

Find out what’s bound for team MaBry’s ‘kilig’ love story in That’s My Amboy. Will there be a second chance for them in love or will they just part ways?

British talent show back for 10th anniversary

Odd yet astonishing performances hit center stage in the tenth season of Britain’s Got Talent (BGT). 

This season, which marks the talent show’s 10th anniversary, opens with death-defying acts that earned unanimous praise from the show’s judges. The Togni Brothers and aerial gymnasts Katy and Paul are among these stunning performers. 

From Birmingham, the Togni brothers Michael and Dario are foot jugglers who grew up in an Italian circus. The duo drew strong cheers from the crowd throughout their stunt. Even Amanda Holden, who called their stunt extraordinary, couldn’t help herself from exclaiming “Oh my God!” Simon Cowell described the brothers’ audition as a great act, having never seen anything like it before. 

Liverpool-based aerial gymnasts Katy and Paul have been performing together for 14 years. Katy is a healthcare worker while Paul is a full-time performer. Paul described Katy as someone who is like a sister to him. Their spins also drew a huge response, receiving a standing ovation from both the judges and the audience. 

Though the first episodes of the British talent show featured some extremely dangerous acts, other auditions also made for great entertainment. Among those who stood out in the first episodes of the British talent show are the Presentation School Choir from Kilkenny, the Elite Squad Royalz from Oxford, and Wayne Woodward, who sounded like Frank Sinatra.

Fond memories

For 10 years, the strange and stunning exploits of the show has excited viewers in Britain and around the world.  Looking back, Britain’s Got Talent producer and judge Simon Cowell admits that when the show first aired in 2007, he was not 100 percent sure that the talent search would be a success. 

It was only when Paul Potts auditioned that Simon realized Britain’s Got Talent would be a great show. “Paul, in a weird way, defines the whole show and what it’s all about. It’s different from other competitions because I’m not sure other competitions would have got him to enter,” Simon said.

Now an operatic pop music singer, Paul got three yeses during the show’s first season when he performed Nessun Dorma, an aria from the opera Turandot.

Simon also thought Connie Talbot, who sung “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” during her audition, was also one of the show’s most unforgettable talents.  Like Paul Potts, Connie Talbot was a crowd favorite. Paul Potts, however, ended up becoming the show’s first winner.

Other surprises in store

Daring acts have surprised both the audience and the judges this season but another highlight is the return of the “Golden Buzzer.” The judges, as well as the show’s hosts Ant and Dec each have Golden Buzzers. 

When the hosts or a judge press the Golden Buzzer for a performer, that performer receives an automatic place in the live semi-finals. So far, two acts have received the golden buzzer –Beau Dermott and the 100 Voices Choir. 

Britain’s Got Talent Season 10 premiered April 10 exclusive on RTL CBS Entertainment HD. It airs 10:30 a.m. as live via satellite on Sundays. Primetime encores 9 p.m. on Sundays and Thursdays.
