Vice Ganda finally took center stage for this year's Magpasikat Week!
This year, the comedian decided to look back on his past experiences before becoming one of the country's biggest stars, including being bullied and judged in due to his looks.
The special presentation, which the comedian dubbed as a "hair story," featured several awe-inspiring and electrifying song and dance numbers, aerial stunts, and visual effects, with the participation of veteran star Dawn Zulueta, the Miss Q&A queens, and Vice's characters from his previous movies, particularly the blockbuster hits that have become a staple in the annual Metro Manila Film Festival.
What truly touched the heart of viewers was Vice's rendition of Lady Gaga's hit song "Hair," which marks the imporatance of expressing ourselves freely, away from all the judgement and criticisms from people. It also put a spotlight on those who suffer from Alopecia.
Members of the panel of judges, including Dra. Vicky Belo and Joel Cruz, were completely moved by the number, even pledging cash donations to Alopecia sufferers and the chosen charity of other teams who participated in this year's Magpasikat Week.
Watch the full performance here:
Following a deliberation of judges, Vice's touching number emerged victorious, placing first, followed by Vhong Navarro and Mariel Rodriguez's futuristic presentation at second place, and Anne Curtis and Amy Perez's acrobatic performance.
Vice's victory came just weeks after the announcement that his upcoming film, which will also star Anne, Dimples Romana, and Tony Labrusca, is included among the eight official entries to the 2019 Metro Manila Film Festival this December.
The comedy flick will mark Vice's seventh appearance in the annual festival, after "Sisterakas" in 2012, "Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" in 2013, "The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin" in 2014, "Beauty and the Bestie" in 2015, "Gandarrapido: The Revenger Squad" in 2017, and "Fantastica" in 2018.
