Like the Sing-lebrity edition finale exactly a week prior, the regular edition of Sing Galing also held the grand event in the historic Manila Metropolitan Theater owned by the National Commission for the Culture and Arts (NCCA). With the support and acknowledgement of the NCCA, Sing Galing also aptly commemorated March 12 as the Pambansang Araw ng Videoke.

Rock band Aegis was a special guest artist, performing with the Sing Galing cast, Sindaw Philippines Performing Arts, Team Galing, and Kantastic 6 to open the show.
