IN PHOTOS: Celebrities party at Star Magic Ball 2016

MANILA, Philippines – The Star Magic Ball 2016 was not just about the red carpet. The stars proceeded to the ballroom after their walk through the red carpet for the main event: the ball.

The event was hosted by Martin Nievera.

Nyoy Volante, Markki Stroem, Bibo Reyes, and Rhenwyn Gabalonzo performed some songs from the musical Jersey Boys.

Richard Poon, KZ, Martin, and Jona Viray performed a Tony Bennett medley as they serenaded former ABS-CBN president Freddie Garcia, considered one of Star Magic's pillars. 

Young singers CJ Navato, Kristel Fulgar, Bailey May, Ylona Garcia, Darren Espanto, and Alexa Ilacad performed a Carole King medley as tribute to to ABS-CBN chairman Gabby Lopez

Some of Star Magic's young and upcoming talents did the traditional cotillon presentation, with Jason Dy singing the ballad "I Won’t Give Up." 

These year's cotillon participants are Tommy Esguerra and Miho Nishida, Sofia Andres and Diego Loyzaga, McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson, Sue Ramirez and Ronnie Alonte, Grae Fernandez and Kira Balinger, and Nash Aguas and Alexa Ilacad.
