The stage is set for a spectacular show within a show featuring various entertainers such as Primo, a group of three tenors, a star of the “The King and I” plus an under the sea-inspired number featuring an acrobat act from Resorts World Manila, among others. To add to the sensory experience and to highlight Cebuano creativity, the candidates will be wearing the creations of Cebu’s top designers with maquillage by the MakeUp Artists Club of Cebu.
