New day. New segment. New segment?
Yes, you’ve read that right! The year may be coming to an end, but this doesn’t hinder It’s Showtime from bringing something new and fresh to the madlang people! And for this week, they launched its newest segment on Monday, December 14, dubbed “Walang Tunugan”, which is apparently a wordplay of the popular late-night television show of the late German “Kuya Germs” Moreno.
It was slated on the last portion of the program, with hosts Vhong Navarro and Kim Chiu as the introductory contestants. As the name suggests, the main mechanics of the game is that participants should try their best not to produce any sound while doing an assigned activity. The one who’s able to create the lowest level of sound – as measured by the decibel meter they wittingly call “Noise Ganda” – would win.
For the first-ever task, Kim and Vhong had to open a can of softdrinks within the 30-second time limit. Both of them were able to do it, but it was the former who was able to do it with the least sound. Thus, she proceeded to the jackpot round wherein she had to wear spiked body gears and pass through a tunnel filled with balloons without popping one. The Chinita Princess failed after striking one balloon on her way out and shrieking loud.
Apart from the new segment, the madlang people surely had fun as well watching the gregarious host talk about Vice Ganda’s recent Boracay getaway with his friends. The thrill went on as they played “Name It To Win It”, wherein Team Vice and Team Vhong had to guess the names of NBA players based on the clues given to them. In the end, it was Vice and his team members Karylle, Jugs Jugueta, and Kim who won and had the chance to share Php5,000 to a lucky home viewer.
And for the Tawag ng Tanghalan segment, the last batch of the quarter finalists who would vie for the opportunity to break into the semifinals performed their chosen pieces that remind them of the greatest loves of their lives.
First off was the “Mommy Sings Best of Bukidnon” Ayegee Paredes who dedicated her astounding rendition of Whitney Houston’s “Home” to her beloved daughter. She was succeeded by the “Music Teacher-rific Singer of Muntinlupa City” Opalhene Rose Paghubasan who belted out her and her beloved husband’s theme song “The Last Time” by Eric Benet.
The “Gift-spirational Singer of Laguna” Donna Gift Ricafrente stepped on the stage next, whose version of Andy Williams’ “Love Story” intended for her daughter enthralled the hurados. Following him was the “Charming Galing Sa Singing of Bulacan” Eivan Enriquez who paid tribute to his ever-supportive mommy by singing Jim Brickman’s “Your Love”. Last, but definitely not the least, was the “Math-inik sa Kantahan of Mandaluyong City” Isaac Zamudio who drew inspiration from his family in singing “Stand Up For Love” by Destiny’s Child.
In the end, it was Donna Gift who was hailed that day’s top-notcher after garnering the highest score of 94.7% from hurados Karylle, Mitoy Yonting, and Rey Valera. It wasn’t only her who won, but a lucky online viewer as well who rooted for her.
