These are neither neon signs nor scenes from cartoons. The image shown in this article was made by Filipino blacklight handmime group— Lal-lo's Blacklight Performers—which recently won in the 3rd monthly finals of ABS-CBN's pre-noontime program Showtime.

The group, which was lauded not only for their skills but for their message on unity, is just one of talented groups that were discovered in the show, which will be turning one this weekend.


Showtime continues to top its timeslot, according to ABS-CBN, based on the ratings data from Kantar Media. Last Monday (October 18), the show got 12.5% rating compared to 4% and 7.4% of competing programs from GMA-7.


The talent search program will have its grand 1st anniversary with hosts Vhong Navarro, Anne Curtis, Kim Atienza, Jugs Jugueta, Teddy Corpuz, and resident judge Vice Ganda this Saturday (October 23) before Pilipinas Win na Win! on ABS-CBN.
