Before her performance, KZ had the chance to meet and talk to Jessie J.

“I can’t believe I’m talking to you. Who will compete with you?” she said.

“When I was in high school, I almost stop singing because I couldn’t reach the high notes anymore. Then I heard you. Who I am as an artist now, a big chunk of that is because of you,” she added.

KZ Tandingan performed her own take of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” jazz version.  She also did some Filipino rapping.
