"Maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat... Anak, para sa 'yo 'to," she said.

"Thank you sa inyong lahat na bumoto at nagtiwala sa akin," De Catalina added.

She took home P2 million as this season's winner.

De Catalina caught the attention of both the judges and viewers as early as the auditions, when she received the "Golden Buzzer" for her performance.

In the semifinals, she blew away the competition when she dedicated her to her son.

De Catalina bested dance duo Julius and Rhea and comedian Joven Olvido, who were also crowd favorites as they finished in the Top 3.

She is the second dancer to win the hit talent show, with singers dominating the first four seasons of "PGT."

Last season, real-life couple Anjanette and Gervin, known as Power Duo, was named the grand winner.
