Prior to making us laugh in their first-ever big screen collaboration "Partners In Crime," the gregarious tandem of Vice Ganda and Ivana Alawi gave us a little teaser on what to expect on their movie during their stint in the ABS-CBN Christmas Special 2022.
Among the sets we’d seen on the first day of the two-part event, the It’s Showtime fam spread good vibes and laughter to the madlang people by bringing their “Kantambayan” session, which they usually do at the beginning of their every episode from Mondays to Saturdays. Vice Ganda led the fun and awesome “party-party” with the noontime show’s staff and crew by dancing and singing Madonna’s “Where’s The Party” around the studio and the control area in his neon pink costume, blonde coif, and shimmering tiara.
They truly brought the house down as they assembled onstage, with the girls – comprised by Cianne Dominguez, Ate Girl Jackie Gonzaga, Kim Chiu, and Tyang Amy Perez – belted out “Bang Bang” by Ariana Grande, Jessie J, and Nicki Minaj, while the boys – composed of Jugs Jugueta, Teddy Corpuz, Ogie Alcasid, Ion Perez, and Ryan Bang – performed “She Bangs” by Ricky Martin.
The Unkabogable Star then invited his "Partners In Crime" co-star Ivana Alawi, who was also cladded in a vibrant pink ensemble, to join them onstage to participate in Barangay Showtime’s funny shenanigans, and even challenged her to an “eksaheradang” lip sync battle. With the help of the It’s Showtime members, they battled it out to display their unmistakable witticism and execute their funny interpretations of Andra Day’s “Rise Up”.
Vice and Ivana capped off the highly amusing set by inviting everyone to catch their first-ever film together in theaters once it premieres this coming Christmas Day, December 25, and with the It’s Showtime fam grooving to the "Ever After” TikTok dance craze.
