It’s Showtime continues to show all the Christmas feels, a few days before the merriest day of the year!
After those trademark banters at the start of the show, the It’s Showtime hosts would play “Name It To Win It,” wherein they would guess a word or phrase based on visual clues. On Tuesday, December 15, they would battle it out on American states. Vhong Navarro’s team, composed of Tyang Amy Perez, Jugs Jugueta, and Teddy Corpuz, bagged the victory with a perfect score, while Team Vice, which consisted of Ryan Bang, Kim Chiu, Ion Perez, and Jackque Gonzaga, ended up with 18 points.
Meanwhile, four contenders slugged it out in the quarterfinals of Tawag Ng Tanghalan singing famous novelty hits.
First on the stage was the “Bibbo Kid” Isaac Zamudio who would characteristically sing Vhong Navarro’s “Totoy Bibbo,” as he exuded his extraordinary energy. Ayegee Paredes performed her own rendition of “Ye Ye Vonnel.” She chose this song because the artist who sang it, the late April Boy Regino, is her idol. Ayegee shared that they have similarities because just like him, she has also joined singing contests ever since she was young. Moreover, Ayegee also took the chance to work abroad just like April Boy in order to provide for her family. Next to perform was Eivan Darrel Enriquez, who talked about enjoying the friendship of his close friends, after singing “Sasakyan Kita” by K and the Boxers. Donna Ricafrente then took the stage to adorably interpret Jolina Magdangal’s “Chuva Choo Choo” as she disclosed her love story with her five-month Australian boyfriend, whom she said she hasn’t met in person yet. The last quarterfinalist was Opalhene Rose Paghubasan, who gave a very powerful rendition of Vice Ganda’s “Push Mo Yan Te” because she said the song actually inspires and motivates her to continue working hard in life. The four who advanced to the semifinals were Eivan, Ayegee, Donna, and Opalhene.
The Gold Squad member Seth Fedelin, who will soon star in Huwag Kang Mangamba, played Hide and Sing, to guess who among the disguised TagoKanta was the real singing celebrity. He however failed to correctly identify the acclaimed indigenous musician, stage actress, and proud Manobo Bayang Barrios in the group.
