It was the moment ViceRylle fans have been waiting to happen since the love team of Vice Ganda and Karylle was formed. The crowd went wild when Vice Ganda as his alter ego Viceral, kissed Karylle during his production number. In the middle of the performance, Vice kissed Karylle on the lips, which caught the latter by surprise. In an interview with Vice backstage, he shared that it was all spontaneous saying, “For the fans ‘di ba? Hindi [pinlano]. Natawa siya. Tawa kami ng tawa.”
3. Jadine, KathNiel and LizQuen perform together in one stage
It was one television moment that fans would never forget as James Reid-Nadine Lustre, Daniel Padilla-Kathryn Bernardo and Enrique Gil-Liza Soberano tandems sang together on one stage. The Big Dome was filled with the loudest cheers and yells among fans when the Kapamilya love teams appeared on stage. Prior to their performances together, each love team also had their own song numbers. JaDine performed “On the Wings of Love”, KathNiel sang “Pangako Sa’yo” and LizQuen performed “Forevermore”. Because of the kilig vibe inside the Araneta Coliseum, KathNiel fans even cried when their idols stepped out on the Showtime stage.
