EB 90's Dance Contest is a cheerdance competition for high school or college pep squads with 15 to 20 members, creating routines using dance hits that were popularized on Eat Bulaga! in the 1990s. The segment premiered on 25 November 2019 and concluded on 11 January 2020.

The segment is a reincarnation of the numerous dance contests which dominated the airtime of the noontime show back then. It is part of the show's 40th anniversary resurgence of its "Tatak Eat Bulaga!segments. The revival of these segments is meant to give the new generation of Filipinos an opportunity to get a taste of the show's several iconic competitions.

Arellano Chiefsquad of Arellano University was hailed as the grand winner of the competition. Its head coach is Lucky San Juan and its student captain is John Christian Indoc. The cheerdance group will then compete in the upcoming Tatak Eat Bulaga! Grand Showdown against the winners of the show's revived iconic segments.

Meanwhile, Altas Perp Squad of the University of Perpetual Help System Dalta, led by head coach Ruf Rosario and student captain Jomar Lopez, emerged as the first runner-up.

Overview

Registration and audition

The dance contest was open to college cheerdance groups or pep squads consisting of 15–20 members. The groups must include songs released in the 1990s in their mashups, although they are not completely restricted to using just 1990s music. Audition videos must be sent to an online email address.

Daily rounds

Each daily round featured two new high school or university groups showcasing their award-winning cheerdance routines which uses music from the 1990s.

Their performances were decided by 50 audience judges who each wrote their choice on a card. One guest celebrity joined the panel each day whose vote equals 50 points. The celebrity judge may either decide to split his votes between the two competing groups or to award all of his votes to only one group. Whichever act received the most total votes was declared the winner.

Two wildcard rounds occurred from 19 to 20 December 2019. Cheerdance groups who previously lost were given the opportunity to compete in the segment once more. The winners of the wildcard rounds joined the other daily winners in the fourth weekly finals to compete for a spot in the grand finals.
