Pilipinas Got Talent (PGT) Season 2 Grand Finalists: Rico The Magician Eliminated, Freestylers and Madrigal Siblings Got it

Online viewers overwhelmingly supported their bets in the first batch of Pilipinas Got Talent Season 2 Semi Finals. Freestylers who got 46.42% of text votes was hailed as the first PGT Season 2's grand finalist. Next on the list was Rico the Magician from Caloocan City who got 22.31% of votes. Unfortunately, the second grand finalist fate was not based on the text voting results, it was from the judges. AiAi chose Madrigal Siblings, FMG chose Rico the Magician while Kris Aquino also picked the Madrigal Siblings who only ranked third in the text votes with 14.11%.

Some of PGT Season 2's fans agreed with the judges' decision while others expressed their opposite reactions on the PGT's first Semi-Finals elimination results. In one of the facebook pages for Rico The Magician, the admin said that they were annoyed with PGT Season 2's result, they are hoping that Rico will be included in the Wild Card.

A newly formed Facebook campaign is also arising towards PGT Season 2. A facebook fan page entitled "Pledge: I will not send a text vote on PGT from now on". As quoted from its description,

"Due to recent incident, na yung mga judge pa rin naman ang nasusunod at walang kwenta pala ang text votes natin, huwag na lang tayong bumoto. Sayang lang. Hayaan na lang natin sina AiAi at Kris ang magdesisyon."

Meanwhile, Brian Brady (Filipino-raised American singer) who got 7.80% of votes,  Jeremie Tampoy (blind singer and pianist) -5.09% and Light Gauge Acoustic band who got 4.36% of text votes didn't make it to the grand finals.
