Team Vice Ganda
The Unkabogable Star received high praises and applauses from netizens and viewers for his empowering and awe-inspiring performance that proclaimed him the 2019 Magpasikat grand champion and bestowed him the whopping one million pesos cash prize that he donated to his chosen charity, Alopecia Philippines.

It showcased his inspirational “hair story,” which aimed to share his foremost advocacy of supporting people who have alopecia areata and of imparting self-love towards everyone who have the said condition or are struggling in embracing their true selves. Aside from Vice Ganda, the visually captivating performance also featured Miss Q & A queens and veteran actress Dawn Zulueta, who further brightened up the grandiose production comprised of aerial stunts, visual effects, and the special participation of alopecia patients.
We were brought to the future with the astonishing and heart-fluttering production number of second placers Vhong Navarro and Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla, who were joined by the Hashtags. They brought us to a bizarre and out-of-this world adventure, specifically to an era which was situated 30 years from now.

It showcased truly remarkable futuristic exhibitions that signified how technology had tremendously improved 30 years from now that enabled them to provide post-modern way to spread happiness to the madlang people through “mandroids”, or humanoid robots, which sole mission is to kiss away our boredom at a very affordable price.
And even though Mariel wasn’t physically present during their performance, she still played a significant role as the leader of the “mandroids” who introduced Mandroid VN-01, the character played by their group leader Vhong. Another memorable part of the production number was when Vhong transformed into human who tried to entertain his It’s Showtime family, who were imagined to be in their senior years that time.
We were definitely touched and entertained by the heartwarming and amazing performance of Jugs Jugueta, Teddy Corpuz, and Jhong Hilario. Contrary to Team Vhong and Mariel’s theme, the trio had a ‘blast-from-the-past’ as they showcased the 80s era through the concept, costumes, props, and acts they incorporated in it, while they brought back some of the most memorable moments that their It’s Showtime family had shared on the show through the years.

What’s unique about their ‘pasabog’ performance were the 3D glasses that they asked the audiences to wear in order for them to see the group’s another fantastic surprise. If you have really followed Magpasikat ever since it started a decade ago, then you’re aware that the tandem of Jugs and Teddy has the greatest number of victorious as they reigned as champions for quintuple times already. Unique is really an understatement for the kind of production numbers they showcased.
The joining of forces of host-musician Karylle and our very own ‘oppa’ Ryan Bang were able to produce a terrific and telling musical performance which was made more astounding by the participation of the Tawag ng Tanghalan singers. It was also a future-themed production, which consisted of music genres varying from theatrical to rap to ballad to pop.

Through a short K-drama-inspired video, the story of the performance revolved around Ryan who was “friend-zoned” by his celebrity crushes and experienced being broken-hearted numerous times. It also showed how the character of Ryan yearned to be with his dad again. There was also a short skit presented by Ryan and Karylle where they talked about their love-hate relationship as friends.
Team Anne-Tyang Amy
Girls really run the world as third placers Anne Curtis and Tyang Amy Perez shocked everyone with their ‘buwis-buhay’ performances in bringing everyone back to the 10 successful yet challenging years of the program. The four separate montages showed various achievements and success of the show, as well as their most unforgettable moments together as a family on It’s Showtime.

As Tyang Amy fascinated us in her glittery brown body suit, we’re more astonished when she unleashed her acrobatic skills which involved a difficult headstand. Meanwhile, Anne, who unbeknownst to us was already pregnant then, just left us in awe as well when she did the death-defying German Rhonrad wheel acrobatics alongside Bidaman grand winner Jin Macapagal and a professional Australian gymnast.
Are you excited as us to see the sure-fire performances of Team Vhong-Tyang Amy-Jackie, Team Jugs-Teddy-Ryan, Team Jhong-Karylle-Ion, and Team Vice Ganda-Kim Chiu this forthcoming Magpasikat 2020?
