“Medyo nagulat…’Yung reaction ng mga tao noong nag-Mandarin ako, parang mas maingay, compared doon sa ‘Say Something’ na performance, so feeling ko, ‘Oh my gosh, baka mas mababa sa rank six ‘yung ranking ko.’ Sobrang unpredictable talaga, e.”
Actually the KZ revealed that “Say Something” was a last-minute song choice. She only had a day to prepare since she was already getting ready for another song . KZ was informed just the night before the performance.
