The winners were announced on Saturday, October 21, with the hurados for this year's "Magpasikat Week," as part of the noon time show's eighth (8) anniversary, praised all the teams on their explosive performances.

Team Vhong Navarro got perfect score of 10 from the judges composed of director Rory B. Quintos, actress Ina Raymundo, Diamond Star Maricel Soriano, reporter Marc Logan and singer Janno Gibbs.


“Vhong, you are a creative genius. I am impressed beyond words,” said Quintos.

“Very timely ang message! ‘Yung mga kabataan talaga ngayon ay nabibiktama ng depression. Sobra akong tinamaan sa performance niyo. Yung timing niyo, sabay-sabay talaga. World-class,” Raymundo commented.

As the "Magpasikat Week" champions, Navarro, along with Hashtags members Nikko Natividad, Tom Doromal Bugoy Carino and Kid Yambaro, and Girltrends Erin Ocampo and Joana Hipolito, won P300,000 for their chosen charity.


Placing second and third were the team of Vice Ganda, Teddy Corpuz, and Jugs Jugueta; and the team of Karylle and Jhong Hilario, taking home P200,000 and P100,000 for their chosen charities, respectively.


The two remaining teams -- Anne Curtis, Nadine Lustre and Ryan Bang and Billy Crawford, Amy Perez and James Reid -- received consolation prizes for their chosen charities.

Showtime hosts show gratitude

In today’s grand finale, It's Showtime hosts reminisced all the performances from the previous years and thanked madlang people for the continous support. There was even a ceremonial burning of guitar to wish the show’s following year to be another successful one.

In a touching scene, the hosts recalled how being part of It’s Showtime has changed their lives. Gathering in a big group, their family prayed together.

This week had been a whirlwind of excellent performances. With the theme of Phantom of the Opera, Billy’s team presented a magical show. Vice, Jugs and Teddy showed that love trumps everything as Teddy married in real wedding.

Anne, Nadine and Ryan was all about love and party for their love parade. Karylle and Jhong’s musical play was also well applauded as they become insects in love.

Congratulations to all the winners!
