Kids are set to take center stage on “It’s Showtime” this summer via its newest segment “Junior Hashtags,” a search for ‘gigil ambassadors’ who possess the moves and charm of the noontime program’s all-boy dance group.
Every day, three solo performers aged five to 12 show off their moves à la Hashtags and face off on the dance floor. The kid who gets the highest score from the jurors will be named the winner and bring home P10,000 and will again compete in the weekly finals.
Aspiring “Junior Hashtags” may audition at the ABS-CBN audience entrance from Mondays to Fridays, 11AM until 6PM, and look for Noli Espenosilla or Bing Ramos.
The said segment was launched last Saturday (April 2), when Maricell Callo and Mary Gidget Dela Llana were declared the winners of the first semi-finals of “Tawag ng Tanghalan.”
Viewers nationwide indeed tuned in to the highly anticipated competition as “It’s Showtime” recorded a national TV rating of 21.58%, beating its rival program “Eat Bulaga,” which only got 14.8%, according to data from Kantar Media.
Watch “It’s Showtime” from Mondays to Saturdays on ABS-CBN or ABS-CBN HD (SkyCable ch 167). Catch its latest episodes on iwantv.com.ph or skyondemand.com.ph for Sky subscribers.
