Fans of the country’s favorite talent variety program “Showtime” are in for a surprise as hosts Vhong Navarro, Anne Curtis, Kim Atienza, resident judge Vice Ganda, and the duo of Teddy Corpuz and Jugs Jugueta battle each other in a showdown on the show’s first anniversary today (Oct 23).
Navarro, Curtis, Atienza, Ganda, Corpuz, and Jugueta have been rehearsing in private for the past week to make sure they will get the favor of guest judges including Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano, “Panahon Ko ‘To” host Luis Manzano, and former ‘hurados’ Gladys Reyes and Dimples Romana. The winning group will also take home a cash prize!
Hit singers Sitti, Karylle, and Nyoy Violante will also have a special number with a chorale group of Aetas. They will be the show’s beneficiary this year.
Since it went on air, “Showtime” has delivered amusement and inspiration to viewers, while giving ordinary Filipinos a chance to feel like stars on television. The show is also the source of phrases “May Nag-Text,” “Sample, Sample,” and “Party-Party,” which are now being used by viewers in their everyday conversations.
The show was also the launching pad for in-demand dance groups today like “XB Gensan” and “Boyz Unlimited.”
Join the fun in the special first anniversary celebration of “Showtime” this Saturday (Oct 23) before “Pilipinas Win na Win” on ABS-CBN.
