Eighteen-year-old Antonio Bathan Jr. chose an unusual topic to show off his talent in spoken word poetry on Sunday's episode of "Pilipinas Got Talent."
Bathan talked about "pakbet," a local vegetable dish, and related it to women and love.
"Ie-expect mo na maganda talaga 'yung una mong act kasi may time ka para maghanda, pero nung hingian kita on the spot at nakapagsabi ka tungkol sa 'Pilipinas Got Talent,' bumilib talaga ako sa 'yo ng bongga," Angel Locsin told Bathan.
"Ako na ang pinakamasaya dito kasi naririnig ko sa isang 18 years old ang kayamanan ng ating bansa, ang kayamanan ng ating lengguwahe. Napakagaling mo," Robin Padilla added.
Bathan will be moving on to the next round after receiving the approval of all four judges.
Hosted by Billy Crawford and Toni Gonzaga, "Pilipinas Got Talent" airs Saturdays after "Home Sweetie Home" and Sundays after "Wansapanataym."
