The Philippine version of “The Masked Singer” will air on TV5. Titled “Masked Singer Pilipinas,” the show will feature Billy Crawford and Aga Muhlach.
Crawford will host “Masked Singer Pilipinas.” He expressed his gratitude for TV5’s support and encouragement sharing.
“Sobrang excited na kami (We are very excited),” Crawford said. “Nagpapasalamat kami sa Diyos sa biyaya na binigay Niya sa amin, itong programa na ito, at sa TV5, just for opening your doors, and your windows and your blinds, maraming salamat. Enjoy, enjoyin na natin ito kasi talagang maraming exciting news ang ihahandog ng Kapatid natin, kasi talaga marami-rami ito.
