MANILA, Philippines - ABS-CBN's "Pilipinas Got Talent" (PGT) Season 2 has named two more grand finalists.

Tap dancers "Happy Feet" led the nationwide text votes with 50.51%, automatically securing them a slot in the show's finale.

Judges Ai-Ai delas Alas, Kris Aquino and Freddie Garcia, on the other hand, had to choose between heartthrob contestant Jose Emmanuel "Jem" Cubil and singer Collins Gutierrez, who ranked 2nd (23.20%) and 3rd (15.40%) in text votes, respectively.

The show's judges chose Cubil to advance to the grand finals.

"I'm basing my decision sa tinanong ko sa ibang followers ko. Susundin ko sila sa mas nakakaraming boto this time. Jem, you have my vote," Aquino said.

"Sa mga girls na tumitili, sasali ako. Kay Jem ako," delas Alas added.

"Pareho kayong magaling pero in terms of timber of the voice and presence medyo lamang si Jem. So I'll go to Jem," Garcia explained.

Six more finalists will be named in the coming weeks.

Aside from Happy Feet and Cubil, four other finalists have already been named: Freestylers, Madrigal Siblings, B4 and Angel Canlas.

Six more finalists will be chosen in the coming weeks.
