BGYO & KZ Collaborate With Daniel Padilla’s Hit Songs
As soon as possible Natin’ To was definitely pop on Sunday, April 10, as its versatile mainstays and impressive guest performers treated avid viewers to invigorating, fantastic numbers that either had us singing or got us back on our feet for sure.
The episode began with an ’80s-themed extravaganza, with the Kapamilya singers and dancers entering the stage as they sang and skipped The Go-gos “We Got The Beat” at the same time. Regine Velasquez-Alcasid then chained it solo, followed by the dance break provided by Viveroe, Krystal Brimner, AC Bonifacio, Joao Constancia, Enchong Dee, Jeremy G and Kyle Echarri. They were later joined by Martin Nievera, who was singing Wang Chung’s “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” at the time.
Klarisse de Guzman, Elha Nympha, Janella Salvador, and KZ Tandingan joined forces to perform The Pointer Sisters’ “Neutron Dance.” Zsa Zsa Padilla, meanwhile, had Gen Z artists AC Bonifacio, Jeremy G, Sheena Belarmino and Kyle as backup to sing Bananarama’s “Love In The First Degree.”
They were replaced by Maris Racal, Fana and Anji Salvacion, who wowed us with their rendition of Seduction’s “Two To Make It” to which Echong and Joao also provided a dance break. The rest of ASAP’s homies returned to the stage to sing another Go-gos hit “Head Over Heels” with Kim Chiu finally joining them after her energetic dance solo.
Darren Espanto, Angela Ken, Jeremy and Sheena then wowed us with their version of the popular 90s dance hit “5,6,7,8” by Steps.
Since the episode is about all things pop, it would probably be incomplete without having some of the hottest acts from the Filipino Pop or P-Pop scene on the show! BGYO had us swooning with their mashup of Daniel Padilla’s hits “Simpleng Tulad Mo” and “Nasa ‘Yo Na Ang Lahat” featuring KZ, who twisted it a bit by injecting a rap part.
Next up was Alamat, who inspired us to keep reaching for our goals with their track “ABKD.” MNL48 delivered the same message when performing “No Way Man.” BINI, meanwhile, captivated us with their cover of “I-swing Mo Ako” by Sharon Cuneta and VST & Company featuring Ogie Alcasid. The ASAP family also didn’t forget to salute BGYO members Akira Morishita and Gelo Rivera as they both celebrate their birthdays in April.
Asia’s Songbird Regine and guest performer Ice Seguerra then gave us a laid back vibe on Sunday with their duet of Michael Johnson hits “Bluer Than Blue”, “Doors” and “I’ll Always Love You”. It was followed by the mesmerizing number of girls from Juris and Nina, as well as “New Gen Sessionistas” Anji Salvacion, Shanaia Gomez, Fana, Angela Ken, SAB and Lian Kyla, where they performed sweet renditions of “Yun Ka by Willie Revillame. and “Ikaw Na Nga”.
To commemorate The Rolling Stones’ 60 years in the music industry, “Dancefloor Queen” Kim Chiu set the ASAP stage on fire by dancing to their hit “(I Can Get No) Satisfaction” with ASAP Dancefloor Hotties Belle Mariano, Vivoree, Maris and AC, as well as idols Joao, Enchong and Kyle.
After wowing us with her enjoyable performance earlier in this episode, Anji Salvacion surely thrilled her fans when she finally announced that she was going to have her very first major concert on April 30th titled “Feels: The Concert” which will be aired on KTX.
Our beloved New Gen Birit Idols then moved on with their heartbreaking OPM song duets. Anthony Castillo and Janine Berdin sang “Paano” by Gary Valenciano, Lara Maigue and Reiven Umali sang “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala” by Ice Seguerra, Sam Mangubat and Sheena Belarmino broke our hearts with “Pagbigyang Muli” by Erik Santos, while Elha Nympha and JM Yosures wowed with their version of “Ikaw Ang Lahat Sa Akin”. Elha was also greeted by her family ASAP on her 18th birthday on April 16 and even received a warm group hug from fellow New Gen Birit Idols and hosts Martin Nievera and Robi Domingo.
As always, the program ended with “The Greatest Showdown” segment, in which the timeless hits of Barry Manilow were performed. Martin sang “Life Will Go On”, Jona sang “Somewhere In The Night”, Jason Dy sang “Ready To Take A Chance Again”, Zsa Zsa moved us with “Sandra”, Nina moved the audience with ” It’s A Miracle”, while Régine made us sing with “The Old Songs”.
