Billy said to the contestant in a nice manner:

"Yung diction talaga..amm hindi naman siya sobrang importante dito sa competition kase alam namin na taga-Mindanao kayo so talagang mahihirapan kayo sa diction."

"Pero konting linis lang doon"





According to Mykiru site, here are the whole comment of Billy

"Ang astig kase ng kantang 'to ng 4 Non Blondes. Katulad ni Bela (Padilla), nung kabataan ko rin ay kinakanta ko to. At napansin ko dito sa kantang to, especially sa ating mga Pinoy, nahihirapan tayo sa diction. Yung diction ang pinakamahirap. Yung diction talaga, hindi naman sya sobrang importante dito sa kumpetisyon, kasi alam namin na taga-Mindanao kayo, so, talagang mahihirapan ka sa diction. Pero, konting linis na lang doon, kase gusto namin, actually sa akin, gusto ko ung pag-gagaralgal ng boses mo. Kakaiba. Ung pwersa, halatang binigay mo ung lahat ng kakayahan mo dito sa kantang 'What's Up?'. Bigay-todo ka. Napakaganda. May konting-konting mga flats lang tayo sa dulo. Pero medyo pagka-rock kase dating nung pagkakanta mo, kaya forgiveable naman sya. In all, maganda naman performance mo sa araw na 'to, at sana matupad lahat ng pangarap mo. Congrats, and good luck!"

Though it seems that there's a little misunderstanding to what Billy's trying to say to the contestant that may trigger some Mindanaoans.

After this incident Billy Crawford quickly apologizes for his remark.



While judging last February 6, 2018 Tawag ng Tanghalan, Billy was given a chance to apologize.

Billy didn't mean to disrespect anyone from Mindanao.


"Gusto ko pong manghingi ng konting oras para manghingi ng paumanhin, or I would like to apologize, ahh, una sa lahat, ung contestant kahapon na taga-Mindanao. Ahh medyo, it wasn't my intention to disrespect anybody from Mindanao. Sa lahat ng mga taga-Mindanao, ako po ay nanghihingi ng paumanhin. Pasensya na po kayo. Ahm, hindi lang tama ang pagkasabi ko. At ahh, pero hindi pa rin po yun rason kung bakit may excuse pa po ako. Wala po akong excuse. Nasabi ko po kung anong nasabi ko kahapon. And I would just like to apologize for everyone in Mindanao. I'm very very sorry."
