The new kings and queens of the UAAP Cheerdance Competition have been crowned.
With a magical routine that captivated an audience of almost 20, 000 people, the National University Pep Squad broke its spell in the UAAP's most popular event after winning third place in both the cheerdance and group stunts tilts on Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
The royalty-themed performance wowed the judges --- some of them from Europe and other Asian countries --- and allowed the NU crew to nail its first podium finish since the competition began in 1994.
University of the Philippines dazzled once more with a performance that saw all their athlete-dancers shave their heads while Far Eastern University, clad in body-hugging animal prints, placed second for the second time in three years.
Before the competition, NU coach Ghicka Bernabe shared that spectators will be in for big surprises.
"Last year was like an appetizer," Bernabe said. "Now, we're ready to serve the main course."
