"Pilipinas Got Talent Season 3" runner up Khalil Ramos

MANILA, Philippines – "Pilipinas Got Talent Season 3" runner-up Khalil Ramos said he wants to work with Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News after the competition on Sunday, Ramos said it would be an honor to share the stage with the acclaimed singer.

"I want to sing with Sarah because she is really good," he said.

The 15-year-old singer added that he is ready to enter the entertainment industry.

"Yeah, I think I'm ready. I really wanted to be a performer since I was five. I had voice lessons [when] I was 14 na," Ramos said.

"I definitely want to have an album. I want to perform before thousands. I want to continue my passion and to perform in front of a lot of people," he added.

Despite his dream of entering showbiz, Ramos said his education will still be his number one priority. He is currently a high school student at Colegio de San Agustin in Makati City.

"School is my number one priority pa rin because studies will always come first. I will just try to balance it with the career," he said.

"The school is very supportive. I think I'm gonna take special tutorials this week."

Meanwhile, the young singer said he does not feel bad even though he was not able to clinch the top spot in the third season of "Pilipinas Got Talent."

"Okay lang. Masaya naman ako. Masayang masaya na ako na nakapasok ako ng grand finals. Inisip ko before this na manalo or matalo, lahat po kami winners na. And masayang masaya na ako.

"It feels great because out of 12, I got one of the spots sa top 3 and I'm really happy and I'm relieved."

Ramos also thanked all his supporters and those who voted for him in the contest.

"To all the people who support me, thank you so much. Ang fame and fortune naman po, hindi ko siya dinadamdam. It's just there and it shouldn't be kept in my head," he said.

Maasinhon Trio took home P2 million after being named the third grand winner of "Pilipinas Got Talent."

Ramos and the Bringas brothers of Davao del Sur were each given P100,000.

The nine other finalists each received P50,000.
