He's been hosting "Pilipinas Got Talent." 

And it appears being surrounded by talented people has led to Billy Crawford developing a keen eye for identifying singers, which he showcased on Sunday's "I Can See Your Voice." 

It came down to two choices for Crawford: a woman who sells eggs for a living and a man who claims he's a zumba instructor. 

He eventually picked Ramel Awi, who teaches zumba for the meantime as he strives to become a famous singer and actor. 

This meant that Rosalyn Velasco, a 44-year-old from Antipolo City, failed to secure her chance to be on "Tawag ng Tanghalan." She revealed that it has been her dream to compete on the singing contest, inspired by her son who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

This prompted Crawford to apologize and comfort Velasco. "Pasensya na po kayo, Mommy," he said. 

Asked for his message, he added: "Kung puwede ko lang po sabihin na sana na hindi kayo mawalan ng pagasa kumanta. Kasi napakaganda po ng boses ninyo." 

"Kahit sa lahat ng naranasan niyo po sa buhay, iyong pagmamahal ng Diyos ay nandiyan. Thank you for inspiring us." 

Velasco went home with P15,000 cash prize, while Awi got P25,000 and the spot in "Tawag ng Tanghalan" for being picked last.
