What’s nice about them is that their fun companionship and friendship is seen even on-air, especially this closing number, wherein Vice Ganda joined in the fray.

Off-screen we are enamored with the genuine intimacy the Gold Squad—Andrea Brillantes, Francine Diaz, Kyle Echarri, and Seth Fedelin—share. In this video, we see them greeting Francine singing the birthday song, with Kyle holding her birthday cake as the beloved celebrant blew the candle.

It was also a delight to see the sorely missed It’s Showtime host Anne Curtis, who is currently focusing on her mommy duties in Australia, in a video call with the ASAP hosts, greeting Kapamilya and Kapatid viewers.

It has certainly been a thrill seeing the biggest Kapamilya stars on this unprecedented TV event, reaching audiences wherever they may be, thus becoming the hottest trending topic online,. Check out more of the camaraderie, fun in the preparations and the actual airing of the show behind the scenes in this gallery.
