Sweeping 10 judges’ score cards with perfect 10 scores, dance group Bacolod Masskara was declared the grand champion of the fifth season of the ABS-CBN noontime variety program “It’s Showtime" on Saturday, April 28.
Bacolod Masskara, the representative of Bacolod City, Negros Occidental in the “Inter-Town” competition of “Showtime,” earned a cash prize of P3 million after beating Amazing Paper Dolls, Tiklad, Infinite Reform, Lahing Anda, Dumaguete’s Pride and Next Level Octomix,.
A third of the winnings will be given to Bacolod City, while P2 million will be awarded to the performing group.
“Madlang people” and “hurados” alike were roused to their feet as the group kicked the spectacle into high gear, with giant masked figures emerging from the audience, and a confetti-showering helicopter joining the troop of dancers in Bacolod City.
Bacolod Masskara is the sixth grand champion of “It’s Showtime,” following triumphs of XB Gensan (Season 1), Laoag City Gymnastics Group (Season 2), True Colors (Season 3), Astig Pinoy (Season 4), and CCP Bobcats (Campus Clash Edition).
