From the moment she stepped onstage, the similarities with the Sacred Riana, winner of the recent "Asia's Got Talent," was eerie. They both didn't speak, donned a Sadako-esque costume, and scared the judges out of their seats.
But that's where the similarities end. While Riana relied on her array of creepy tricks and illusions to win over viewers, Mary Grace Decafe, a 29-year-old from Iloilo, prepared something vastly different.
She had everyone watching "Pilipinas Got Talent" in fits of laughter as she tried to show off a trick that involved pulling a cloth from under heavy household appliances, including a washing machine.
Decafe explained that she auditioned for the show because she saw it as a chance to spread joy with her comedic skits.
And she did, earning some very amused yeses from the judges, which meant that she will move on to the next round.
"Maganda iyong bali mo kasi iyong takot, pinalitan mo --that was a very successful comedy act. Kasi tawang-tawa ako," said Vice Ganda,
Hosted by Billy Crawford and Toni Gonzaga, "Pilipinas Got Talent" airs Saturdays after "Home Sweetie Home" and Sundays after "Wansapanataym."
