ABS-CBN welcomed back Roderick Paulate and Amy Perez by signing them up to an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN yesterday afternoon (October 22) and announced that they will be reunited as hosts of the musical game show “The Singing Bee” this November.
Dick and Amy, who are real-life best friends, expressed their elation over their comeback and reunion in the Kapamilya network.
“Pakiramdam namin, si Mamang, ‘yong mommy ni Kuya Dick, pinapanood niya kami mula sa langit at ginawan niya pa talaga ng paraan na magkasama kami ulit,” Amy shared.
“Pakiramdam ko nakauwi na ako matapos ang ilang taon. Iba talaga ‘yong pakiramdam ng umuwi at muling makita ang pamilya mo,” Dick said.
Dick and Amy became a popular and well-loved tandem at the height of ABS-CBN’s noontime show “Magandang Tanghali Bayan” (MTB). They both said that every member of the family will be entertained by “The Singing Bee.”
“Ito ‘yong show na masaya. Masaya kaming hosts at masaya rin ang mga manonood kasi mapapakanta at mapapahula talaga sila. Napaka-interactive nito. May mga maiinis kapag mali ang lyrics ng contestant. Maganda ang vibes ko sa show na ito,” Dick said.
“Tayong mga Pinoy kilalang magaling at mahilig kumanta. Sa kahit anong problema na dumarating sa atin ang parating solusyon ay kumanta kaya papatok ‘to,” Amy added.
Aside from co-hosting "The Singing Bee," Amy will also join morning show "Umagang Kay Ganda" and will return to radio via ABS-CBN’s flagship AM station DZMM.
Also present during the contract signing were ABS-CBN business unit head Reily Santiago, News and Current Affairs head Ging Reyes, president and CEO Charo Santos, broadcast head Cory Vidanes, and TV production head Laurenti Dyogi.
