(UPDATE) Everyday, we see madlang people ("Showtime" audience) from different parts of the world visit the Showtime studio, greeting friends and family from their respective hometown. Time to turn the tables around. The entire "Showtime" family flew to Dubai to be with the madlang people in the Dubai Airport Expo. Vhong Navarro, Anne Curtis, Billy Crawford, Vice Ganda, Kuya Kim Atienza, Jugs, Teddy and I were joined by hurados Jon Avila and Mr. Danny Buenafe, News Bureau Chief of ABS-CBN Middle East and Europe.
Four teams including Artistic Revolutionaries and the Filipino Dance Sport & Social Club bested several others through online auditions while the hosts performed for Pinoys in Dubai. Watawat Dance Crew and KSA Knight Movers went home with AED10,000 each and the title of being winners of "Kabayan…It's Showtime."
Beyond work, the "Showtime" family went to Dubai to bond with the madlang people and with each other. Here are some of the pics from that super fun trip that coincided with the UAE 40th National Day :)
