MTV Music Evolution in the Philippines was a Big Hit

RAIN or shine, Filipinos really love MUSIC.

Nothing can’t stop us from hearing and seeing our favorite singers, girl group or boy band perform live on stage. I witnessed it last June 24 at the MTV Music Evolution 2016 held at SM MOA Concert Grounds.

I know the weather was a bit unpredictable, but I was so glad that I did not forget my raincoat. So, even I was soaking wet under the rain, I danced and sang my heart out together with the crowd during that wonderful night of music evolution.

The events place was jam-packed with people of all ages. Yes. Full security was noticeable too as there were police patrollers within the vicinity.

Here’s what I’ve witnessed that night, however, I was not able to watch the start of the show.

“Babalik Ka Rin” by Gary V was an epic song perfect for MTVMusicEvolution going back to the Philippines for the second time around. Plus his son Gab was indeed filled with energy that night too.

Hosts also gave away some instant prizes.

The crowd went wild when JaDine or James Reid and Nadine Lustre were introduced to sing on stage. OMG, these celebrities have a huge following – young and old, I can hear them singing with JaDine.

A little FYI: Bebe Rexha said she was too broke when EminEm picked the music she has written. And the rest was history.

Strong rain started pouring while Bebe Rexha was singing. The microphone even had a glitch but the show must go on and the crowd still party with the Monster hit.
