MANILA — “It’s Showtime” is marking its 11th year on air with the traditional “Magpasikat” week, wherein its hosts put on spectacular performances for a charitable cause.
The mainstays of the ABS-CBN noontime program announced on Monday the groupings for this year.
First-time “Magpasikat” performer Kim Chiu will partner with Vice Ganda; while Vhong Navarro will be joined by Amy Perez and Jackie Gonzaga.
Jhong Hilario will reunite with Karylle, this time with Ion Perez; and the tandem of Jugs Jugueta and Teddy Corpuz will have Ryan Bang as a third member.
Dubbed “Eleven Up ang Samahan,” the anniversary celebration will be held week-long until Saturday.
“Kahit mahirap ang kondisyones, mahirap mag-perform ngayon kasi may mga safety protocol tayong susundin, limitado ang tao, we will still try to deliver a good form of entertainment,” Vice Ganda said.
Since the inaugural “Magpasikat” week, Jugueta and Corpuz as a duo have clinched the most number of trophies at 5. Karylle and Anne Curtis, who is currently based in Australia, trail with 3 championships each.
Navarro and Vice Ganda have each won twice, while Hilario and Perez have separately been named winner once.
