It’s Showtime’s “Tawag ng Tanghalan” host Vice Ganda was the one who will announce the dailychampion of the amateur singing contest. He proclaimed Jade Hipe, a mother from Davao City who made a cover of Rachelle Ann Go’s “From the Start”, the winner.
However, it was a mistake because the defending champion Mary Gidget dela Llana got a score of 92.4 percent from the judges.
His mistake was quickly compared with American host Steve Harvey, who announced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner of the Miss Universe pageant 2015 instead of Pia Wurtzbach from the Philippines.
Vice Ganda also posted to his Twitter account and apologized for his gaffe. “Sorry po! Lutang pa! Waaaaaahhhhh!!!! Sorry!” he posted.
Mary Gidget Dela Llana already secured a place in the semi-finals of the talent search. She will come back on the “Tawag ng Tanghalan” stage on Monday in hopes to have her eighth win.
