In the show’s Saturday (Sept 14) episode, the hosts introduced the contest by giving a special a capella performance of Blackstreet’s hit song “No Diggity,” with Billy Crawford as lead vocalist, and Anne Curtis, Karylle, and Coleen Garcia providing back-up vocals.
They were accompanied by co-hosts Vice Ganda, Vhong Navarro, Jugs Jugueta, Jhong Hilario, Ryan Bang, and Eric ‘Eruption’ Tai who supplied the rhythm and beats and was conducted by Teddy Corpuz. Anne and Karylle also sang the track’s rap parts.
Meanwhile, “It’s Showtime” also named Cainta, Rizal’s dance group Rizal Underground as its first ever Bida Kabarkada grand champion for its unique and theatrical hiphop performance that earned the only standing ovation from the judges.
Rizal Underground ditched the explosive stunts to give a compelling interpretation of Philippine history’s remarkable events, such as the battle between Magellan and Lapu-Lapu and Gen. MacArthur’s return to Leyte.
With an overall score of 9.5, Rizal Underground was declared champion and won the P1 million cash prize.
