The winners of Magpasikat Week, as part of It's Showtime's ninth (9th) anniversary celebration, were announced on Saturday, October 20.

Team Jhong and Karylle's performance tells the story of a cockroach and a caterpillar tackling self-acceptance and gender equality.

The team got 9.4 points from the judges composed of Empoy Marquez, Shalani Soledad-Romulo, Rey "PJ" Abellana, celebrity couple Ronnie and Maris Ricketts and Gus Abelgas as the "punong hurado."

Ricketts admitted they almost lost their words because they were so captivated. Ronnie said, “Para akong nasa New York, nanonood ng Broadway show. Saludo ako sa inyo.”

Marquez said that the team impressed him so much. He went on to praise the comedic timing of the team members and called their performance a “laughternoon.”
