Billy’s team showed the madlang people why they are rightfully called performers. In the theme of the classic Phantom of the Opera, they opened their act in Victorian outfits and background. The three decided to go outdoors to perform a thrilling magic act. They placed James inside a glass cubicle and water sprayed him.

In an amazing feat, James appeared right on the stage. Amy Perez also became a showgirl as she changed her outfit with the wave of a cloth. She also sizzled in her sexy rendition of “All that Jazz.” For the finale, Billy performed a breathtaking magic trick where he transported the rest of the team across the studio.

The team’s hashtag #MagpasikatBiLLyJamesAmy also trended Monday afternoon.

Last year, Billy was paired off with Ryan Bang in a comedic skit. Their presentation ended up the madlang people in fits of laughter and even had Piolo Pascual as a guest. The madlang people were surprised when an unexpected kiss happened between the two and Billy decided to walk out in the middle of their show. But, it was all part of the show and for good time’s sake. Billy ended their presentation with an impressive dance number with Hashtags McCoy and Jimboy, and GirlTrends Barbie, Erin, Kamille, and Joana. The pair ended up with the Consolation prize with P50,000.

Anne Curtis with Amy Perez and Joey Marquez scored a perfect 10 from the hurados and earned them the title of the 2016 Magpasikat Grand Champion. They won P300,000 for their chosen charity.

Who do you think will earn the boasting rights as 8th It’s Showtime Magpasikat Grand Champion?
