Get ready for a whole month full of surprises as the most widely watched Filipino variety-game show in and outside the Philippines, “It’s Showtime,” marks its seventh anniversary this October.
“It’s Showtime” kicked off its celebration with the hosts’ performance together with the show’s homegrown talents who have become sources of Filipino pride because of their achievements in other parts of the world: shadow play group El Gamma Penumbra; girl group 4thImpact; dance group XB Gensan; and Journey vocalist Arnel Pineda, to give viewers a taste of what they should anticipate from the month-long celebration.
On the first week, the nation’s most talented singers clashed in the highly anticipated Quarter 3 Semi-Finals of “Tawag ng Tanghalan.”
Representing Metro Manila were Balla-dearest son of Baclaran Rufino Robles, Sis-pectacular Songtress of Makati Jennie Gabriel, and Virtual Effects Artistahin of Quezon City Christopher Rodrigueza.
Luzon semifinalists likewise fought for their place in the finals: The Super-Lolovable Singer of Rizal, Antonio Sabalza and the Unstoppable sa Galing of Bulacan Eumee Capile. The Bukid Boy Wonder of Negros Occidental, Noven Belleza, was the sole representative from Visayas.
Another highlight to look out for in the second week of the anniversary month are the “It’s Showtime” champions who will once again impress the madlang people. Showcasing their talent and charm are the grand winners from "Magpasikat", “Kalokalike,” “That’s My Tomboy,” “I Am PoGay,” “Funny One,” “Mini Me,” “Stars on 45,” and other competitions in the past seven years.
