Not only did he get a chance to hug both Angel Locsin and his idol, Robin Padilla, but Michael Aco is also a step closer to fulfilling his dream.
On Sunday's episode of "Pilipinas Got Talent," Aco performed a song number, punctuated by funny "hugot" lines.
Despite his average singing, Aco's comic antics earned him the unanimous approval of the judges.
"Para sa akin kasi seryosong talent ang pagpapatawa. At ang tanging tao lang na makakapagsabi sayo kung nakakatawa ka o matagumpay kang komedyante ay yung nanood sayo mismo nung nagpapatawa ka," Vice Ganda told Aco.
"Naappreciate ko 'yung effort pero 'yung sa pagkanta, hindi ko masyadong type 'yun. Pero 'yung pag-aaliw mo sa aming lahat, 'yun na-appreciate kita bilang performer doon," Locsin added.
Locsin also offered to shoulder the expenses for the repair of Aco's house.
Hosted by Billy Crawford and Toni Gonzaga, "Pilipinas Got Talent" airs Saturdays after "Home Sweetie Home" and Sundays after "Wansapanataym."
