It’s Showtime brings its biggest anniversary celebration to date called “Sampu Sample,” a year-long festival of surprises that marks the program’s ten years of making Filipinos happy and invites all madlang people to not just have fun but also help in taking care of the environment and in making a difference.
Team Jugs Jugueta, Teddy Corpuz and Jhong Hilario gave a mind-boggling throwback performance for Magpasikat 2019 on It's Showtime Thursday, October 24.

Their piece's theme centered around looking back and cherishing the moments, even those that have already passed.
It started with a video of Jhong telling Jackque Gonzaga and Ion Perez about the VHS player which was used to watch videos and movie back in the day. In it, they watched an 80's version of It's Showtime wherein the two rock kings and the sample king were the hosts. However, the video played backwards.
With this, they called Kuya Kim Atienza to fix the VHS player. Came with him were Eric ‘Eruption’ Tai who was dressed as wrestler ‘Hulk Logan’, Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia who wore Gabby Concepcion and Sharon Cuneta masks, respectively.
Because of their appearance, their performance served as a reunion for the hosts and after a few knock knock jokes, Kuya Kim and Eruption fixed the VHS.
Because of this, they were now able to watch the video properly. Present in the video were song and dance numbers from Ion Perez, Jacque Gonzaga, Sanrio and the Sample King.
After watching, they changed some lyrics of the show’s original soundtrack to lines about the tenth anniversary.
Randy Santiago and Carmi Martin also took the time to participate in the performance.
According to MTRCB Chairperson Hurado Rachel Arenas, the group was able to bring their audience to a new generation.
International choreographer Hurado Andy Alviz added that their performance had an impressive concept and it was like going down “memory lane.”
The head of Public Affairs and Information Office of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) Hurado Rene Napeñas then said they filled everyone’s imaginations. “Siksik, liglig, umaapaw at buhay na buhay ang inyong pagka-malikhain,” he said.
“Nabigyan n’yo ako ng instant facelift dahil napangiti ny’o talaga 'ko,” the Doctor to the Stars Vicki Belo added.
