The hosts, audience, viewers, and netizens were surprised by the special surprise and explosive performance of the Unkabogable Star Vice Ganda and his team's special guests on "Magpasikat 2023" on It's Showtime this Thursday, November 9.

After leaving the mentioned noontime program, their former co-hosts, Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia-Crawford, who are now married, stepped foot on the show again, accompanied by their child, Baby Amari.

It's quite surprising because there were talks and it became a topic in showbiz news about the supposed rift between Vice Ganda and Billy during the time when the singer-TV host left Showtime and ABS-CBN. Billy then jumped to TV5 to become one of the hosts of the now-defunct noontime show "Lunch Out Loud" (LOL), which later became "Tropang LOL."

After the performance, the two admitted that they had a misunderstanding before, leading to them unfollowing each other on Instagram. However, in 2023, they're now okay and talking again. Vice admitted that he was inspired by the "healing" realization from the performance of Anne Curtis, Ryan Bang, and Ogie Alcasid's team. This prompted him to text Billy for a surprise appearance in their performance, along with Billy's wife Coleen and their child.

“Lingid po sa kaalaman ninyo, okay na okay na kami ni Billy,” Vice Ganda said.

“Pero hindi kasi kami ‘yong tipong… ‘di ba, basta okay kami.”

“Tapos, bigla kong naisip ‘yong concept ng healing. Knowing that the madlang people know we’re okay, baka mag-inspire ito sa inyo na mag-heal din.”

“It’s about time na baka kaya n’yo na rin ‘di ba, na makipag-reconcile sa taong mahalagang-mahalaga sa inyo.”

“Thank you, Billy and Coleen kasi biglaan ‘to. Kagabi ko lang sila tinawagan. Nagte-text kami ni Billy this past few days pero hindi namin ‘to napag-usapan.”

“Kasi si Billy is one very important person sa buhay ko. At the end of day, you are my best friend and I love you very much. Regalo natin ito sa madlang people na makita nilang magkakasama tayo ulit,” he reiterated.

On the other hand, Billy apologized to Vice Ganda, the It's Showtime hosts, madlang people, and the entire Kapamilya. However, he didn't specify the reason for the apology.

“Thank you, Vice. Happy anniversary, first of all, to us. Marami akong realization these past months. Kababalik ko lang galing States, kakakita ko lang sa daddy ko. Hindi ko alam kung hanggang kailan ang daddy ko sa mundong ito. Pero ang bilin niya sa akin ay mag-ayos tayo,” Billy stated.

“Noong sinabi ng daddy ko na part of that, it’s beyond my control, it’s beyond Vice’s control din. I think lahat ng ito ay orchestrated by God.”

“Katulad ng sinabi mo Vice, nahanap ko ang aking asawa, nabuo ko ang aking pamilya, dahil sa programang ito. Para sa akin it really doesn’t matter kung saan ka. Mahal namin ang isa’t isa. Lahat ng pamilya nagkakaaway, nagkakalabuan, but at the end of the day, in God’s time, Siya na rin ang bahalang mag-ayos.”

“Kaya on my end, I want to say I’m sorry. I’m sorry, Madlang People. I’m sorry, Kapamilya. Magpapakumbaba na po ako. Gagawin ko kasi ang lahat para sa aking pamilya.”

Because of this, Billy Crawford became trending on X (formerly Twitter). Netizens are also hoping that Vice Ganda and former It's Showtime host Kuya Kim Atienza, as well as the former director Direk Bobet Vidanes, can also reconcile.
