A scene from the final showdown of “Idol Philippines” that took place last night, September 18, is now viral, with the names of Vice and Zephanie becoming the top trending topic on Twitter.

Some viewers believed that Vice was throwing shade at Zephanie when he appeared on the grand finals of the ABS-CBN singing search.

The Phenomenal Box-office Star had a production number in the said program for being a former judge and also went on the show to promote the second season of his game show “Everybody Sing.”

After his performance, Robi asked Vice for a message about the new “Idol Philippines” grand winner.

The comedian said: “Sa bagong hihiranging grand Idol winner, sana maraming magbukas na opportunities sa ‘yo.”

At that moment, Vice Ganda paused and said: “Sana mag-stay ka muna dito sa network na ‘to.”

Idol judges Moira dela Torre and Regine Velasquez are seen covering their mouths after the comedian uttered his joke.

Robi Domingo, on the other hand, said: “Whatever happens, Kapamilya forever.”

Vice Ganda continued: “Hindi, sa mananalo at pati sa lahat ng mga sumali at nagsimula na ang kanilang singing career, tapangan ninyo. Tapangan ninyo. Kasi, lahat maraming talent, pero hindi lahat matapang kaya bumibigay agad sa napakaraming pagsubok na haharapain ninyo.”

“Hindi easy ang showbiz, ha. Hindi ito easy money. Akala nila easy money. Ang dami mong isasakripisyo dito at lahat ‘yon kailangan may kasamang tapang. Tapangan ninyo,” the comedian added.

Vice Ganda did not mention the name of Zephanie in his message but the netizens and televiewers are sure that he was referring to the singer.

Zephanie Dimaranan, who’s now a Kapuso star, became the grand champion of Idol Philippines Season 1 in 2009.

Vice was one of the judges of the first season of the reality-based singing competition along with Regine, Moira, and James Reid.

Zephanie stayed as a Kapamilya for three years after winning Idol PH. Now, she’s a contract artist of Sparkle of GMA and regularly appears on “All-Out Sundays.”

On the other hand, the grand champion of Idol PH season 2 is Khimo Gumatay.
