IN PHOTOS: Grace Poe's celebrity friends show support in Cebu
CEBU CITY, Philippines – Presidential candidate Grace Poe was back in Cebu and held a rally that was grander than ever.
Showbiz personalities from Cebu and Manila entertained the crowd while waiting for Poe, who was at several rallies that day.
The rally was hosted by Eat Bulaga's Ruby Rodriguez, actress Bela Padilla, Cebuano actor Slater Young, and JC Baron.
In between the introduction of members of Poe's senatorial slate, there were song and dance numbers, along with comedy routines of the evening's hosts.
Grace's son Brian Llamanzares appeared at the rally and performed two dance numbers.
When reelectionist Senator Vicente "Tito" Sotto III came out to speak, two surprise guests from Eat Bulaga appeared on stage with him, newly-wed celebrity couple Vic Sotto and Pauleen Luna.
Poe made her dramatic entrance amid fireworks, appearing as a silhouette while her introduction video played.
