Showtime

From BluWiki

Showtime is an ABS-CBN morning variety show which premiered October 24, 2009, replacing the long-running Philippine game show, Pilipinas, Game KNB?. It is also aired on The Filipino Channel.

Format

There are three groups, each made up of ten to twenty-five members (with no age limit), performing a single performance, whether it is a song and/or dance number or an acting performance. Before the performance, at least one member of the group is given 20 seconds to make an introduction in any way that reflects the group, but should end with the clause "It's Showtime!" After the performance, the judges, as well as members of the audience, rate the group from 1 to 10. Audience ratings do not count, but can influence the ratings to be given by the judges.

A fourth competition spot is randomly given to one of three groups who did not pass the auditions, but are still worthy to perform in the show. After the group's performance, the judges would give a collective yes or no to the group. If the judges give a yes, the group is considered part of the main contest, with the judges' scores to the group's performance to be included in the calculation for the winner. A no would, of course, mean exclusion of the group from the main contest.

The group with the highest average score from the judges wins and proceeds to the weekly finals. Whoever wins in the weekly finals will get the chance to compete in the monthly finals.

Main Hosts

Judges

Five judges will be present for a week. They will grade the group performances, 10 being the highest and 1 the lowest. Judge Vice Ganda is the only judge who can present his score right after the performance.

Every week, a judge will be voted off. In this portion called Burado o Hurado (lit. "Be Erased or Be a Judge"), the audience and the viewers may evict judge/s through SMS. If a judge gets more than 25% of the total votes, he or she is evicted. Vice Ganda (as a permanent judge) is the only judge who is exempt from all public votes.
