The most beautiful night of the year is upon us with the Binibining Pilipinas 2022 coronation night promising grace, gowns, and P-pop action courtesy of SB19.
The Superbowl is coming to town, and no, we don’t mean the sport. One of the country’s favorite pastimes of pageant competitions will reach its climax as Binibining Pilipinas is set to have their latest coronation night on July 31. After months of pageant walks, over-the-top costumes, glamorous looks, workshops, parades, kumu livestreams, and so much more, the queens of Binibining Pilipinas 2022 will let it all out on coronation night as they vie for one of six coveted crowns of the competition. 40 contestants from around the country are coming together for one night of grand pageantry. Here’s what you need to know about the Binibining Pilipinas 2022 coronation night.
ALL-FEMALE HOSTS RETURNS
In 2021, Catriona Gray and Nicole Cordoves made history as the first ever all-female hosts for a Binibining Pilipinas coronation night. And for the second year in a row, the statuesque duo are coming back once more to serve looks, confidence, and bring their queenly energy to the stage. (Fun fact: Catriona is the last queen to compete in Miss Universe when it was still under the Binibining Pilipinas organization.) It’s not just these two queens though who will serve as hosts of the night. Miss Grand International 2020 Samantha Bernardo and Edward Barber will also be on hand to give some commentary during the night.
NEW BATCH OF BINIBINIS
All 40 contestants should consider themselves winners for making it this far in the competition. But at the end of the day, only six queens will take home a title. And more importantly, only four queens will be able to represent the Philippines in international pageants. Coronation night will see a new batch of queens be named Binibining Pilipinas International, Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental, Binibining Pilipinas Globe, and Binibining Pilipinas Grand International. Hannah Arnold, Samantha Panlilio, Cindy Obenita, and Maureen Montagne will all be at the event ready to crown their successors. Given how many of the current title holders have won or placed high in international pageants, the new batch of queens have a lot to live up to.
P-POP MEETS PAGEANT
The program flow for the night is mostly the same from past years. There will be pageant walks in swimsuits, evening gown segments, and the ever iconic Q&A portion. But the Binibining Pilipinas 2022 Coronation Night will get a little P-pop touch courtesy of SB19. The band was tapped to modernize the pageant’s classic theme song, Win Your Heart, and they are set to perform it live during the show. P-pop has actually had a presence throughout the span of Binibining Pilipinas 2022. Aside from SB19, 4TH IMPACT, Dione, 1st.ONE, and VXON have all performed in various pre-coronation night events. The queens even had a P-pop dance workshop, adding to the pageant meets P-pop vibe. Maymay Entrata is also expected to perform in what sure is to be a kabogera performance.
BIG PAGEANT AT THE BIG DOME
Beauty pageants in the country are usually treated on a grand scale. And as such, the 58th edition of Binibining Pilipinas needs a venue to match its ambition. This is why coronation night will be held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Sunday, July 31. The festivities begin at 9 PM PHT. It will be a big, beautiful, and grand night to say the least.
HOW YOU CAN WATCH
If all these and more has got you excited to watch, or at least curious to see what may go down, there are multiple ways you can tune in. If you want to root for your favorite queen/s live and in person, tickets are currently available via Ticketnet. But, if you can’t make it in person, ABS-CBN will be airing the show live and for free via the Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, and TV5.
