BEATBOXER CROWNED FIRST-EVER “VERSUS” GRAND CHAMPION ON “IT’S SHOWTIME”

 


Twenty-five-year old beatboxer Jessie Pascua a.k.a. ‘The Ihaws of Us’ was named the first-ever ultimate grand champion of “It’s Showtime’s” “Versus” talent competition after getting the most votes from the judges in “Versus: The Grandshowpresa,” on Friday (May 28).

 

Jessie was picked to win by two of the four celebrity judges – Darren Espanto and Angelica Panganiban – after beatboxing an entire party remix, using different body parts to showcase a variety of sounds, and playing a harmonica.

  

Jessie, who hails from Meycauyan, Bulacan, took home the grand trophy and won P100,000. His co-contenders ‘Christorpe Reeve’ (Jestoni Rubantes), ‘Otso Gwapito’ (Jericho Ayala), and ‘Siyam Milby (Larry Into)’ each took home P20,000.

 


Iza Calzado and AC Bonifacio also served as judges for the grand finals.

 

For three months, “Versus” searched for the best Filipino talents and showcased different acts who entertained the madlang people with their impressive stunts and acts.


 

After “Versus,” viewers can anticipate more world-class performances as “Tawag ng Tanghalan” continues its two-week quarterfinals today (May 29), where Froilan Cedilla, Reiven Umali, and Josh Labing-isa are fighting for a spot in the semifinals. The vocal battles will resume on Monday (May 31) as theater actress Aixia Mallary, former service crew Kiro Remon, conservatory graduate Faye Yupano, online seller Erika Buensuceso, and student Psalm Manalo go head-to-head.
