Actress Isabel Granada and her family emerged as the grand champion yesterday, April 13, in the Bida Kapamilya Celebrity Round: The Finals of It’s Showtime. Their heart-stopping routine featured fire performance skills as well as roller-skating skills.
The Granada family won P1 million – half of which will be donated to their chosen charity – after receiving an average score of 9.8 out of a possible 10 from the panel of judges composed of Ruffa Gutierrez, director Rowell Santiago, choreographer Maribeth Bichara, and hosts Vice Ganda and Jhong Hilario.
The family’s winning performance featured a fusion of fire poi, dance roller-skating, and Isabel belting a power ballad while on a hula hoop suspended in air. The former That's Entertainment star sang Adele's "Set Fire to Rain" for their routine. At one point, Isabel was lifted by her partner and fireworks shot out of her roller-blades.
Meanwhile, celebrity siblings Gem and Duncan Ramos’ clan bagged P200,000 after winning first runner-up, while wildcard winner and girl group AKA Jam won P100,000 for being second runner-up.
Isabel’s family created a buzz even with their first performance last Tuesday (April 9), which trended on social networking site Twitter. The winning family is the first grand champion in the Kapamilya noontime show’s Bida Kapamilya Celebrity Round, which saw a total of 36 celebrity families competing for the whole season.
It’s Showtime airs Mondays to Fridays at 12:30 PM and on Saturdays at 12NN on ABS-CBN.
