It Girl Sam Pinto, host of VIVA Channel’s “Daily Top Ten”, joined other special guests in the ceremonial ribbon cutting to open the exhibit. Singing sensation Anja Aguilar, who sang VIVA Channel’s theme song “Home of the Stars”, kicked off the festivities during the opening lunch with an awe-inspiring performance.
Delegates were then treated to dinner and a full show at the Fellowship Night at the hotel’s grand Maynila Ballroom. VIVA Channel started the show off with a jaw-dropping dance number with upcoming sexy stars Alexis Navarro and Sara Polverini from “Pantaxa” and Petra Mahalimuyak from “Petra’s Panniest”, accompanied by ACS dancers. Hosts Jimmy Marquez of “Karaokray” and Petra Mahalimuyak entertained and engaged the audience the whole night through. Anja Aguilar sang an upbeat version of VIVA Channel’s theme song, with upcoming rap star Pio Balbuena, and wowed the crowd again with powerful song numbers.
Delegates went nostalgic with Gino Padilla, and were treated to the perfect harmony of The CompanY, who also went live and unplugged on VIVA Channel’s “Live at Amerasian.” Jon Santos of “The Jon Santos Show” made a grand entrance as Sherap, his parody character of Erap, as requested by the FICTAP board. A special performance by the “Annebishowsa”, Anne Curtis, ended the night with a bang.
Before the congress closed, FICTAP delegates were yet again treated to upbeat song and dance numbers by the gorgeous girl group Eurasia, who brought attendees to their feet yet again. FICTAP attendees experienced the Home of the Stars, only with VIVA CHANNEL!
