Everytime we hear this question, we normally answer by revealing the place where we live or come from. But now, it has gone beyond that when a fad got viral online in which people film themselves dancing the freestyle contemporary dance “budots,” which originated in Davao, after stating that place.
Because of its tremendous popularity, this trend also reached national TV through It’s Showtime. At first, only the hosts and the dancers did it, until they were able to persuade the judges of every segment and their guests to join the craze.
Here are some of our favorite “Taga-Saan Ka?” moments of the celebrity guests.
