It was passionate, sultry and not to mention thrilling! Maymay Entrata’s OTWOL challenge on iWant ASAP is definitely one that fans will never forget. With the help of HYPE, who choreographed the routine, she executed a number of lifts and spins. There was even a ladder involved which provided the main highlight of her buwis-buhay dance performance.
Towards the end of the number, Maymay climbed the ladder and fell backwards in a free fall. Luckily, none other than Edward Barber was there to catch her! You can imagine how romantic their little moment was as he stood on center stage just carrying her.
“Kapamilya, may nanalo na!” Robi Domingo announced as he walked in with Jeremy Glinoga in his own arms, but it was not just the two of them who stood by the sidelines in awe. Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, whose rendition of “On the Wings of Love “is easily a crowd favorite, as well as Ogie Alcasid was also watching live! They even made an entrance with Ogie giving Regine a piggyback.
The married couple were all praises for Maymay and Edward. “Na-stress ako doon sa tumalikod tapos nagpatihulog,” the Songbird expressed. Meanwhile, Ogie recounted how he was in the middle of lunch when he suddenly heard cheers erupt. “Gawin natin ‘yun,” he offered his wife which she quickly declined. “Kung ako ‘yung nagpatihulog, namatay na ko kasi hindi ako sasaluhin,” she joked.
Before exiting, Ogie had a beautiful advice for the young love team, “Yaman din lamang na kayo ay on the wings of love”. He wished that their love would continue to lead them wherever was meant to be, “Nawa’y marating ninyo ang inyong dapat puntahan, kung ‘yan man ay simbahan o ‘di kaya’y isang tahanan.”
When asked Maymay felt as she was about to fall, “Thank you, Lord,” was apparently all that crossed her mind. Robi could not help but wonder whether it was because Edward was the one catching her. “Kasi may sumalo sa aking anghel,” she confirmed. As a response and final message, he made a daring promise, “Not just now, not just in prods, not just in real life, kahit anong mangyari, I’ll be there to catch you if you fall.”
“Mabuhay ang bagong kasal!” Robi jokingly celebrated. This is definitely not a marriage, but without a doubt is still one of MayWard’s sweetest moments on-screen!
