Can it also be 'showed up'?

Yea, or maybe even 'popped up' :)

Why doesnt the literal translation work? It makes perfect sense to me. "Come up on tue screen" works just fine in real conversation.

Although I did not answer correctly myself, I believe that John842218 is correct that "the faces came up on the screen" is perfectly acceptable English.
