The ASAP 18 stage sparkled last Sunday, May 26, as the biggest stars gathered for the 21st year anniversary of Star Magic. The show opened with a bang with a Kim Chiu-Maja Salvador face-off which set the stage on fire. The two stars were suspended in mid-air while singing Rihanna’s hit song “Diamond.” Then came the jaw-dropping performances of the ASAP singers. Yeng Constantino, Erik Santos, Jed Madela, KZ Tandingan, Jovit Baldovino, Zia Quizon, and a whole lot more serenaded the crowd. Maestro Gerard Salonga conducted the captivating musical score for the performances.
It was succeeded by the highlight of Sunday’s event, a fashion show presenting the Star Magic stars. Comedians, child wonders, teen celebrities, TV and movie actors, and budding artists walked onto the ASAP stage dressed in clothes by top designers. The crowd went wild when Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo walked together, as they did for Kim Chiu and Xian Lim.
The Star Magic artists also spoofed some of the most iconic movies of Star Cinema, which got big laughs from the audience. Movies like Paano na Kaya, The Mistress, Anak, and It Takes a Man and a Woman were spoofed starring the original lead stars paired with Kapamilya comedians. The movie parodies were directed by Johnny Manahan himself.
