With its much-anticipated season two beginning tomorrow, July 26, Filipinos have even more to look forward to from the hit talent-variety show.
Last week, the program announced a wild card round that gave a second chance to groups that failed to reach the finals. Then last July 19, hosts Vhong Navarro, Anne Curtis and Kuya Kim Atienza got the shock of their lives when they were asked to decide on the fate of the wild card contestants as co-judges of resident judge Vice Ganda.
Moreover, the biggest surprise of them all came yesterday at Showtime The Finals, where the wildcard winner from Mindanao, the XB GenSan was announced the Grand Winner of Showtimes first season and took home the P1-M grand prize.
The wacky tandem of Jugs of Itchyworms and Teddy of Rocksteddy were all praises for the finalists. “For me, they are all winners. The joy and amusement they have brought to Filipinos already make each one of them a champion,” said Navarro.
The hosts also expressed excitement for the second season of Showtime, which has been a source of entertainment and inspiration of many Filipinos.
“Where else can you see hosts, judges, crew, director and the audience all game to dance and sing together? We are a family here and this makes us even more motivated to work harder in our second season,” Curtis shared.
Showtime airs after Simply KC.
