On its pilot episode last February 26, Sarah G. Live showed a glimpse of the real Sarah Geronimo. Bubbly, cheerful and talented, the Popstar Princess performed a jaw-dropping opening number together with the G-force dancers.
In another song and dance number, Sarah performed to the beat of Gab Valenciano’s choreography. Joining Luis Manzano as Sarah’s co-host, Derek Ramsay shared a bit of his hosting skills in this pilot episode.
Ai-ai Delas Alas, who acted as Sarah’s mother in Bituing Walang Ningning, was Sarah’s special guest for the night. Ai-ai gave a couple of motherly tips regarding boys and love.
The word “babe” became a very intriguing question about Sarah and Gerald’s relationship status. In Sarah G. Live’s Sige Go Adventure, Sarah was surprised by Gerald to a yacht dinner date cruise. The two were enjoying a karaoke session when Sarah blurted out, “Hanap lang ako, Babe.”
The Popstar Princess insisted that the term “babe” didn’t mean anything and the saying “We’re just friends” is not a showbiz answer. On their date, Gerald kept expressing how pretty Sarah is by calling her “Ms. Very Beautiful Girl in the World.”
On the other hand, Sarah expressed how much she values their friendship. “Wag tayong papadala sa pressure. Pinapahalagahan kong sobra yung friendship na meron tayo,” she said.
When asked by Derek how happy she is with all the happenings in her life, Sarah gives a perfect score of 10. She considers Sarah G. Live as a blessing, which made her happier than ever.
Before the show ended, Sarah revealed her very optimistic personality. Genuine and humble words came out from Sarah’s mouth, which made the audiences teary-eyed.
She’s thankful for the ABS-CBN and Viva management, as well as her fans, who brought her career to the top. “Everyday is a gift. Everyday is a blessing. Nabuhay po tayong gumigising sa umaga at inuulit ko pong napakagandang blessing po ng show na ito para sa akin. Kaya sobra po akong grateful sa ABS-CBN, sa manager kong si Boss Vic at lalong-lalo na po sa inyong lahat, sa’kin pong mga supporters na naniniwala sa akin. Sa Popsters, sa Ashralds at sa lahat-lahat po.”
She admittedly said that Sarah G. Live is indeed a big challenger for her. “Pero isa rin po itong malaking challenge para sa akin. Napakarami pong tanong na sumasagi sa isip ko. Mapapantayan ko ho ba yung mga expectations n’yo sa’kin this time? Especially those who have trusted me. Mapapasaya ko ho ba talaga kayo every Sunday night? Pa’no po kung hindi. Pero, I realized na talagang no one can please everyone. Wala naman ho talagang perfect.”
All that Sarah can assure is that she’ll be giving her best in every performance. “Basta sinisigurado ko po na gagawin ko ang best ko tuwing nandidito ako sa stage. At hindi ho ako tumitigil na ma-improve yung talent ko para mapasaya po kayo. Ngayong gabi, I’m giving all my best. At ito na po ang chance ko to grow. At ngayon po ang tamang panahon para gawin ko ‘yan. It’s time for me to do it on my own.”
