“It’s Showtime” Delights Viewers with Spectacular Comeback and New Segments
Last Monday, October 30, “It’s Showtime” made a highly-anticipated return to television, debuting on its new and earlier timeslot at 11:30 am on weekdays. The show immediately captured the attention of viewers with its exhilarating new segments, “It’s Showdown” and “Funanghalian,” which quickly became trending topics on social media.
Netizens expressed their joy and excitement in seeing ABS-CBN’s hit noontime show return to its classic roots, showcasing the amazing talents of Filipinos in dancing through “It’s Showdown.” Additionally, viewers were treated to some laughter through the witty banter of the hosts in “Funanghalian.”
One of the highlights of “It’s Showdown” is the intense competition between two groups as they face off in ‘Hatawan-one’ and ‘Dance Showdown’ to impress the judges. In the first round, each group selects one representative for a thrilling dance-off in the Dance Arena. In the second round, both groups showcase their prepared dance pieces. In the event of a tie, the hosts step in and select one member from each group to engage in a solo showdown.
On the inaugural episode, AMK Rock Nation emerged as the victorious group, impressing the judges with their incredible performance and garnering a total score of 4.2 points. The panel of judges included Vimi Rivera, the country director of World of Dance, Mickey Perz, the head choreographer of Star Magic, and Kim Chiu, known as “ASAP’s” Queen of the Dancefloor.
Meanwhile, in the segment “Funanghalian,” two “It’s Showtime” hosts are tasked with matching their answers in various categories. This engagement adds an element of fun and lightheartedness to the show, further entertaining the audience.
