It's no secret that Robin Padilla prefers performers who showcase Filipino culture as they grace the "Pilipinas Got Talent" stage. 

So it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that he pressed his golden buzzer for a dance group, whose inspiration for its routine come mainly from different folk dances across the country. 

"Kayo ang kasagutan sa mga dasal ko," the action star told Nocturnal Dance Group, as he smashed his golden buzzer for them. 

The Quezon City-based group performed a highly precise routine while wearing matching barong tagalog and salakot. 

Just as stunned was comedian Vice Ganda, who praised them for their coordination. "Hindi naman kailangan magpakamatay para maaliw kami," he said. "Basta sabay-sabay." 

Earning the golden buzzer means that the Nocturnal Dance Group is assured of a place in the semifinals of the talent contest. 

The other acts who got the coveted golden buzzer are dance duo Julius Obrero and Rhea Marquez, and Bardilleranz, a group of pull-up bar acrobats.
