Maja Salvador, the female villain in the popular intense drama series ‘The Legal Wife’, who also had her concert titled ‘The Legal Performer’–did a song-and-dance number during the awards night.

Only in this awards that young rising stars from the three giant networks get to perform in an electrifying dance number as Sam Concepcion (ABS-CBN 2), Jasmine Curtis-Smith (TV5), and Mark Herras (GMA-7) showcased their moves as they gyrated onstage.

The father-and-son, Mr. Pure Energy himself–Gary Valenciano and Gabriel didn’t just exhibit their awesome singing and dancing skills, but they get to play the musical instruments, too.

Sarah Geronimo and Bamboo, this year’s Female and Male Performers of the Year also did a duet.

Wolfgang and the Band of the Year–Parokya ni Edgar also performed that evening.

Sidelights of the Show.

Four of Kapamilya stars stole the limelight for a few minutes upon entering the Arena.

Coco Martin, the star former ‘Juan Dela Cruz’ drew screams and cheers as he walked inside the venue. While Vice Ganda who was dressed in a long white t-shirt with a pony’s head head printed on it with an accentuation of a exaggerated and blown-up loom band grabbed the audience’s attention.

However, it was the love team of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim that rocked the crowd especially the fans seated at the upper box section.

The said award-giving body is powered by fan votes. This year it broke all its records with an overwhelming 17.5 million votes. It is also supported by Philippines’ biggest brands–McDonald’s, KakaoTalk, PLDT Home Bro Ultera, JAG Jeans, Emperador Jeans, Jack & Jill Piattos, and Pond’s.
