KZ Tandingan became known internationally when she joined Singer 2018, a singing competition on China's top-rating show. During her initial appearance as a challenger, she beat UK singer Jessie J, who is also a competitor in the show, for the number one spot in the challenger round. She earned new fans with her powerful performances during her stint. Although she did not make it to the finals, KZ made a mark with the Chinese audience, cementing her title as Asia’s Soul Supreme.
Now back in the Philippines, KZ performed for her fans at the SM Mall of Asia on April 22, Sunday, to support the launch of Vivo’s newest flagship smartphone, the V9 with a 24-megapixel AI selfie camera and more. It was her first public performance in the Philippines following her appearance on Singer 2018.
As the crowd roared in welcome, KZ belted out her signature hits like her cover of Lorde’s “Royals,” which she performed on Singer 2018, and Air Supply’s “Two Less Lonely People in the World.” She also sang her original songs, “Labo” and “Mahal Ko o Mahal Ako.”

someone as talented as her is part of the Vivo family,” she said.

TJ also had nothing but praises for her girlfriend as she introduced her on stage and encouraged the mallgoers to cheer KZ on.
“KZ deserves a loud crowd,” he said.
