It’s Showtime celebrates the Christmas season with jolly, good Yuletide tidings for the madlang people as the show’s hosts wish them all the happiness the season can offer, thanking them for the support throughout this difficult year on Thursday, December 17.
In “Name It To Win It,” the words or phrases the two competing teams of hosts need to guess are the common Filipino female names in “See My Name.” Vice Ganda’s team composed of Ion Perez, Jackque Gonzaga, and Ryan Bang won the segment with a perfect score, while the team of Vhong Navarro, Jugs Jugueta, and Teddy Corpuz ended up with 18 points.
In the continuing quarterfinals of Tawag Ng Tanghalan, Donna Gift Ricafrente, the topnotcher last Wednesday, December 16, together with Eivan Darrel Enriquez, Ayegee Paredes, and Opalhene Rose Paghubasan came back to determine the final three contenders who will move on to the semifinals rendering songs from their idols that influenced their singing aspirations.
Donna sang first with her rendition of her idol Chaka Khan’s “Through The Fire,” which her sister once performed brilliantly and this inspired her to sing it. Eivan went next to give his own version of his much-admired songstress Anita Baker’s “Sweet Love,” a memorable song he would sing with his sisters that made singing his passion. Opalhene would follow with her performance of her personal favorite, Toni Braxton’s “Unbreak My Heart” because she looks up to American soul singer’s artistry and style. Lastly, Ayegee took the stage for her interpretation of Peabo Bryson’s “Love Will Always Find A Way,” stating that her inspiration for singing has always been giving a good life to her family. In the end, Ayegee topped the contest with 95.7%, followed by Donna with 94% and Eivan with 92.8%, qualifying for the semifinal round. Opalhene bowed out of the competition, with the lowest average score of 89.2%.
Singer-comedian Eric Nicolas then played “Hide and Sing” trying to guess the celebrity singer among the TagoKanta, but was unable to correctly identify OPM hitmaker Jude Michael in the group.
