MANILA – Hip hop dance group XB GenSan won the top prize at the Dance2Dance: The World Streetdance Showcase Competition held in Zurich, Switzerland on Saturday night (early Sunday morning in Manila).
The dance crew represented the Philippines in the competition after being chosen from over 100 groups who auditioned.
They bested 10 groups from other participating countries, including Russia and the United States, which finished second and third place, respectively.
XB GenSan, whose members hail from General Santos City, shot to fame after winning the first edition of the flagship talent contest of "It's Showtime."
In their Facebook page, the group thanked all those who supported them.
“Magandang Umaga PILIPINAS!!! PROUD TO BE PILIPINO!! PROUD GENERALS!! SALAMAT sa lahat ng mga nag pray at walang sawang sumuporta! We all love you guys! Salamat sa Showtime Family at sa mga nagmamahal sa amin lalo na sa aming pamilya. TO GOD BE THE GLORY,” the group said in a post.
Earlier this month, "It's Showtime" gave a fitting send-off for the group which included messages from several of their loved ones.

"Hindi lang 'yung pangalan ng GenSan ang baon nila, hindi lang 'It's Showtime' ang baon nila, kung hindi buong Pilipinas ang dala-dala nila paglaban nila sa ibang bansa kaya nakaka-proud naman talaga," said host Vhong Navarro.
