Christian Bautista appeared as a special guest in Eat Bulaga Indonesia earlier today, December 17.
During the opening number, the theme song is played. The tune is familiar but the words are not.
This is because the song has exactly the same tune as "Isang Libo't Isang Tuwa," which is played on the Philippine version of Eat Bulaga.
After performing the theme song in the Bahasa language, the hosts then gathered onstage to formally open the show.
One of the male hosts, Uya Kuya, made two important announcements. The first is that Eat Bulaga Indonesia is now officially airing 5 times a week starting today.
Since it started a few months ago, the franchise was airing three times a week: every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Due to positive feedback and good ratings, Eat Bulaga Indonesia will air daily Mondays to Fridays from 2:30pm-4:30pm.
The host then announced that Filipino singer Christian Bautista was present as a guest that day.
Christian then went onstage and shook hands with all the hosts. The singer-actor said that he will be in Indonesia until December 19.
Christian told the audience that he was glad to be given the opportunity to promote his newest single "Beautiful To Me" under Universal Music Indonesia.
After the interview, the balladeer sang "Beautiful To Me," amidst loud cheers from the studio audience of SCTV.
Halfway through his song, one of the hosts dressed as an angel approached Christian onstage. They held hands and they danced for some time.
Last night, December 17, Christian also appeared as guest judge and singer in Indonesia Mencari Bakat (Indonesia's Got Talent).
Christian landed on the number 5 spot of Twitter trending topics in Indonesia moments after his appearance.
The Pinoy singer also appeared in other TV musical variety shows and gave interviews to publications such as Men's Health Indonesia and Cosmo Girl Tabloid Wanita Indonesia.
Christian will end his promo tour in a showcase at Lippo Kemang, the newest Atrium Mall in Indonesia, on December 19.
