Gary Valenciano is one of the judges of the newest television dance competition “World of Dance” alongside Billy Crawford and Maja Salvador.
While he has been doing his job to choose the acts he think are deserving, Gary has also been receiving negative comments online, questioning his way of judging in the competition.
In his interview with Inquirer, Gary responded to bashers’ comments regarding his judging style, saying: “There were some who were questioning how I judge. Some were asking, ‘World of Dance’ ba ito or ‘World of Drama’? Or ‘World of Awa’ (pity)?’ I tell them it’s these contestants’ ‘drama’ that inspired them to do what they do. Just like in ‘Tawag ng Tanghalan,’ they all have stories of how they sing to provide for their families.”
“I’m not judging that, but their singing or dancing. I respond to some of them to say, ‘Hindi gano’n.’ They don’t respond anymore. To me, that means they got what I was trying to say,” he added.
“World of Dance” hosted by Luis Manzano and miss universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach airs every Saturday and Sunday on ABS-CBN.
