“It’s Showtime” marks another historic milestone as it airs its first episode on the GMA channel on April 6. As promised, Team It’s Showtime has gifted Kapamilya, Ka-A2Z, and Kapuso audiences with all-out entertainment, kicking off the grand episode with an almost thirty-minute concert-like performance.

This exclusive behind-the-scenes video from ent.abs-cbn.com gives us a glimpse of the hosts and production team’s preparations for the opening number.

Vice Ganda’s stunning, powerful birthday prod sure took a village to mount, given the intricate costume changes and stunts.

Anne Curtis and Karylle likewise made sure to fine-tune their song number fit for queens like them. Kim Chiu’s aerial dance routine took her intense practice to perfect. Having been in the entertainment industry for decades doesn’t make Amy Perez complacent, so she made sure to master her dance steps and blockings as well.

Dancefloor heartthrobs Vhong Navarro and Jhong Hilario gave their best moves as early as pre-prod. For the music department, they’ve got Ogie Alcasid, Darren Espanto, Jugs Jugueta, and Teddy Corpuz, who rehearsed well, as they were excited to rock the stage in an exhilarating song number.

Ryan Bang and Ion Perez also had enough time to practice their dance steps. The same goes for Jackie Gonzaga and Cianne Dominguez, and comedic duo MC and Lassy who infused a bit of playtime into their moment on stage.

The “It’s Showtime” fam is made of truly talented members and they make use of their individual strengths to craft the perfect entertainment for their beloved madlang people. Of course, our camera also captured the solid teamwork among the show’s hosts and off-cam crew.
