Ogie Alacasid’s wish to be a guest host in "It's Showtime" came true as he was welcomed by the program’s hosts last Saturday (October 2).
The Kapamilya singer-host shared that he has been longing to join the hosts of “It's Showtime” and not just be a hurado in “Tawag ng Tanghalan.”
“Kapag nandoon ako sa hurado, nabibitin ako. Gusto ko rin makipagsayawan,” he said.
Ogie’s humor and antics blended well with the other hosts. Amy Perez was happy that she is not the only “senior” host of the program.
Vhong Navarro noticed how Ogie was struggling to keep up with the instructions of the staff during the Madlang Pi-poll’s portion.
Ogie said, "Ang daming nangyayari. Nalilito ako. Ang daming ilaw. Sige lang, nagpapadala lang ako sa hangin,” natatawang sambit into."
Nonetheless, Ogie’s hosting stint drew praises from netizens on social media, who not only commended him but also shared that they want him to be a mainstay of the program.
@Tanya1872 tweeted, "#ShowtimeOctoBest sobrang tawang tawa ako kay Ogie Alcasid. Bagay siya sa showtime. Laughtrip kahit wala si Vice!"
@yeahmaybeitsme hoped, "Aliw naman ito si Mr. Ogie Alcasid sa Showtime. Gawin pong mainstay please! #ShowtimeOctobest."
"Favor ako na Gawing mainstay host si Ogie Alcasid sa Showtime nakakaaliw sya #ShowtimeOctobest," @iamjonlorenz said.
