XB GenSan, First Showtime Grand Champion!Category: Entertainment
The Madlang Pipol has spoken!
The Yñares Sports Center was virtually filled with tens after XB GenSan’s performance.
Even judges Vice Ganda and Jhong Hilario can’t contain their excitement and admiration for the group.
As the only group from Mindanao, XB GenSan from General Santos City bested 10 other finalists to become the first winner of ABS-CBN’s Showtime in its Grand Finals last July 24, 2010 held at the Yñares Sports Center in Antipolo City.
It was a classic underdog story for the group as they were already eliminated in the monthly finals but was given second chance after winning the Wild Card Round.
Here’s the video of their performance below. I can really feel their fierce determination to win coupled with angst. Notice too that they have without props and just a simple costume.
The group earned an average score of 9.875 and received P1 million as cash prize.
Other crowd favorites Philippine Islands Assassin and Boyz Unlimited Dancers got average scores of 9.7 and 9.625 respectively.
