- Vhong Navarro challenged Vice Ganda to compose a Christmas song live on “It’s Showtime”
- Ganda showed off songwriting skills and impressed the “Tawag ng Tanghalan” hurados
- TV host/comedian dedicated his newly composed song to Navarro
“It’s Showtime” hosts are really doing their best to make their noontime show interesting and entertaining. During the Dec. 9 episode of the show’s segment “Tawag ng Tanghalan,” Vhong Navarro challenged co-host Vice Ganda to compose a Christmas song live on air.
Based on the video KAMI obtained from ABS-CBN Entertainment, Ganda impressed the madlang people when he successfully composed a Christmas song, considering Navarro’s rule. As per Navarro, Ganda should make a song and each line should begin with the first letter of the alphabet.
“Sige nga, tingnan natin ang galling mo, chinachallenge kita,” Navarro told Ganda. “Magsulat ka ngayon ng kanta dito sa harapan naming. Kantahin mo na lang pero sa bawat stanza parang nagsisimula sa Abakada hanggang sa dulo.”
The 41-year-old “Boom Panes” composer then asked what exactly Navarro’s point was. But as a true-blue fighter, Ganda accepted Navarro’s challenge.
To the tune of “Sana Ngayong Pasko,” Ganda nailed Navarro’s impromptu songwriting challenge with perfect lyrics.
“Ako na naman
Ba ang laging masasaktan?
Kahit anong gawin
Damdamin ay di mapigilan
Eto na naman
Halik ng iyong labi
Lalo ngayong Pasko
Madarama ko ang paglisan mo
Nangungulila sa pag-ibig mo
Ngayong wla ka na
Oras-oras ay nagdaramdam ang puso ko
Paano na ngayong Pasko?
Ramdam ko ang paglisan mo
Sa araw ng Pasko…”
Ganda’s composition earned a chorus of cheers from the madlang people. The “Tawag ng Tanghalan” hurados, on the other hand, gave the Unkabogable star a standing ovation.
When Navarro told him that he forgot the letter T, Ganda comically sang the line, “Tama na, overtime na daw po tayo…” This set of lyrics made the audience to burst into laughter.
Navarro, on the other hand, appeared speechless as Ganda asked for a kiss from him. According to “The Revenger Squad” star, the song was dedicated to Navarro.
Meanwhile, Vice Ganda reminded the audience that each of us has the ability to write a song because all of us have emotions and are going through something.
“Kaya lahat daw ay may kakayahang magsulat ng kanta kasi lahat naman daw tayo ay may emosyon at may pinagdadaanan,” Ganda told the madlang people. “Isulat lang natin yung sarili nating pinagdadaanan at makakasulat ka ng kanta, ganun yun!”
KAMI applauds Ganda's songwriting talent as he showed his skills to the madlang people during the impromptu Christmas song challenge.
