The actor said that he considers this as a major hosting stint given by GMA Network.
“Aside from ‘Eat Bulaga!,’ parang ito ‘yung isa sa mga magiging major hosting projects ko for 2020. So happy. Masaya, masaya,” he said.
Alden believes that Centerstage is a good platform to showcase and hone the talents of the young.
“Doon sa mga bata, siyempre, ginawa natin itong show para sa kanila and ang talagang main objective natin dito is for them to gain experience and enjoy at the same time,” he said.
“Mas maganda talaga na nae-expose ‘yung mga bata, especially talented kids, sa mga ganitong klaseng platforms para ma-showcase ‘yung talent, para ma-amplify ‘yung talent nila, at na ma-hone nila at an early age.
“I’m very happy that GMA came up with this concept and talagang maa-advise ko lang sa mga bata is let’s just enjoy the show and learn from it kasi maraming matututunan dito,” he added.
Kapuso comedian Betong Sumaya will also join the show as a backstage host while Concert Queen Pops Fernandez, Kapuso vocal powerhouse and West End singer Aicelle Santos, and renowned musical director Mel Villena will form the panel of judges.
Alden is currently one of the headliners of All-Out Sundays and a co-host in noontime show Eat Bulaga.Besides from this, he also appeared as hosts in Bet ng Bayan(2014) and Sunday All Stars(2015).
