Event| Mamanee Goes to MTV Music Evolution 2016: Catch the Premiere on MTV Asia!

I think this is one event where I felt by hook or by crook I needed to make it. I totally filed a leave to cover this event and not only because it's an event hosted by MTV Asia but also because my idol Mr. Gary Valenciano was going to perform! I have been a fan of his since his days back in the 80's.

The line up MTV Music Evolution was impressive alone, with Gab Valenciano, James Reid and Nadine Lustre also known as JaDine, famous songwriter and singer Bebe Rexha, Fareast Movement, the K-Pop Group Apink! and of course One Republic as the closing act!

During the press conference which was held at Sofitel Manila, each performer had expressed their excitement of being part of such a big event where The Philippines was chosen as the venue, press people from all over Asia were present to cover the question and answer portion, the MTV VJ's Yassi Pressman, Alan Wong, Hanli Hoefer and Andre Paras was also there gracing the event.

See some of the live clips here:

The show was scheduled at 7PM and even though I had just recovered from an episode of high blood pressure, that nor the rain could stop me from watching. MTV Music Evolution 2016 was held at the SM Mall Of Asia Concert Grounds and the large crowd was energetic despite of the heavy rains, great thing the MTV provided disposable rain coats for everyone and so that party went on!

Mr. Pure Energy, Gary Valenciano opened up the MTV Music Evolution 2016 event with a blast, he even sang songs from his younger years which got the crowd going wild but the highlight was definitely his dance number with his son Gab Valenciano whose performance was amazing. I braved the rain for his performance!

This was followed by the on and off-screen loveteam of JaDine where Nadine Lustre sang "Me and You" which was recognized by SBS Pop Asia with a Titanium Award, James Reid also rendered his popular songs. Since my co-blogger/friend Iya was a fan of James Reid we also took to the rains to catch a glimpse of his performance.

I especially enjoyed listening to Bebe Rexha and how much she also interacted with the crowd telling everyone that to keep doing what they love, I particularly remember when she was telling the crowd that she had her last 200USD in her pocket when she wrote one of her hits songs.

Apink left me with a huge LSS with the song "Remember" They were absolutely flawless with dancing and the crowd totally went wild.

The energy was lifted more with the hits from Fareast Movement who turned the concert into a party venue.

Last but not the least - One Republic where they made the crowd's wait totally worth it especially when they sang their hit "Apologize" and the crowd totally sang along!

  1. awwwww... reading this blogpost made me regret my decision not to brave the downpour and watched the show. Dolby gave us tickets, they are the official audio provider of the show... and one comment on Mr. Pure Energy... gosh did he discover the fountain of youth? He is not aging... not at all :)
