“Muntikan ng magkasabay-sabay. Tapos yung boses nung isa napakatrying hard 🤣”
“How to unsee”
These were just some of the negative comments of netizens had for all-female group GT’s performance on It’s Showtime.
It all started last August 14, when GT, consisting of Chienna Filomeno, Dawn Chang, Mikee Agustin, Mica Javier, Krissha Viaje, Sammie Rimando, and Joana Hipolito, performed a song-and-dance production number “How Do You Sleep Tonight”
During the performance, it was very obvious how the GT Members didn’t dance in sync and how their voices were offkey as well.
Netizen @keikamatsu compared GT’s performance to the islands of the country.

Chie replied and accepted that it was her fault on why the dance was not good at all. “Yup, ako may sala. Aminado ako. That definitely wasn’t my day. I’m sorry for that. Ngayon lang ako naganyan sa 3 years ko sa GT. “
She then called out netizens and others who like giving negative comments and shaming people.
“Eh kayo kailan kayo magiging sorry sa kaka shame niyo ng tao na walang ginagawa sa inyo? ☺️♥️ I wish you all nothing but happiness and contentment.”

Mica Javier also accepted that it’s her fault and reasoned that her bad performance was due to lack of sleep.
On her Twitter, she made a lengthy tweet where she apologized for the performance and admitted that the song that was not in her range.
“1/2 Honestly, I did not feel good about today’s performance. No excuses. If you’re given a shot on stage, you should always perform your best.”
“I’m running on 2hrs sleep segue from taping, same day rehearsal, pang lalake pa yung song–wala sa range ko, pero no choice.”
Mica tweeted that she learned her lesson and with what happened she’ll stand up and will improve her self once more.
“2/2 kailangan gawin kasi yun ang binigay. Regardless I showed up to work, on time, and still did the job. Moral of the story, lahat tayo nadadapa, mas mahalaga, bumangon ka. Do better next time, always keep improving, never give up. It’s a process.”
