Bacolod Masskara is Showtime's Season 5 Inter-Town Edition Grand Winner

The group Bacolod Masskara has been named grand winner on It's Showtime's Season 5 (Inter-Town Edition) grand finals held earlier, April 28, 2012.

Representing Bacolod City, Bacolod Masskara got a perfect score of 10 from all 10 judges.

They won the grand prize of P2-million cash plus P1-million cash for the City Government of Bacolod, for a total of P3M.

My personal favorite Next Level Octomix from Caloocan City unfortunately had lots of failures in their grand final performance, thus getting the lowest average score of 7.6.

Here's the official results / ranking of the 8 grand finalists in Showtime Season 5 - Inter-Town Edition Grand Finals:

1. Bacolod Masskara (Bacolod City) - 10.0
2. Lahing Anda (Anda, Pangasinan) - 9.9
2. La Castellana Bailes de Luces (La Castellana, Negros Occidental) - 9.9
4. Dumaguete's Pride (Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental) - 9.6
5. Infinite Reform (Taytay, Rizal) - 8.5
6. Amazing Paper Dolls (Olongapo City) - 8.4
7. Tiklad (San Pablo City, Laguna) - 8.0
8. Next Level Octomix (Caloocan City) - 7.6

Judges included Robi Domingo, Laureen Uy, Maricel Laxa, Angelu de Leon, Richard Yap, Elizabeth Ramsey, Ginger Conejero, Francine Prieto and mainstays Jhong Hilario and Vice Ganda.

Today's episode also marked Billy Crawford's last day (for now) as host in the show. He will fly to France this Monday to revive his career there. (Actually, he will be gone for only 2 months and will still return as Showtime host.)

LATEST UPDATE: It was revealed on Showtime's next episode Monday, April 30, that it was supposed to be a triple tie among Lahing Anda, Bacolod Masskara and La Castellana Bailes De Luces.

'Showtime' rules state that there should be only 1 grand winner, just like in any major competitions.

The 10 judges had to break the tie and come up with a unanimous decision to name Bacolod Masskara as grand winner.

To break the tie, judge Jhong Hilario had to change his score from 10 to 9 for Lahing Anda and judge Maricel Laxa's score of 10 for Bailes de Luces was also changed to 9. ©
