Iza Calzado, Sunshine Dizon, Karylle, and Diana Zubiri — who made waves as the original Sang’gres in “Encantadia” — made fans emotional as they reunited for a special performance on “It’s Showtime’s” “Magpasikat” segment.

Screams were heard at the studio of the ABS-CBN noontime show after the actresses, decked out in costumes inspired by their characters, showed grace in an interpretative performance in what seemed to be an ode to the hit fantasy drama on Tuesday, Nov. 7.


In a video captured by one @AltStarMagic on X, Calzado (Amihan), Dizon (Pirena), Zubiri (Danaya), and Karylle (Alena) displayed their sisterly chemistry while pretending to be in battle during the performance of the so-called Team KALM, composed of Karylle, Amy Perez, Lassy, and MC.


The actresses then greeted the “It’s Showtime’s” audience with its signature catchphrase “What’s up, madlang people” which sent the segment’s judges, hosts, and audience into applause.

Following their performance, Zubiri expressed her excitement for their reunion on Instagram, where she addressed her “Encantadia” co-stars as her “sisters.”

“AVISALA! So good to be back! Love you sistahs,” she wrote.
