Ambush shot during the Miss Universe 2018 Technical Rehearsals
Your blogger with Designer Mak Tumang
Your blogger got to watch the Miss Universe 2018 Technical Rehearsals at Impact Arena and tomorrow morning’s Finals will be such an amazing experience, I tell you.
We were also fortunate to see the actual #LavaRed competition evening gown (by Mak Tumang, left photo) that Miss Philippines Catriona Gray will use and (without creating any spoilers), it will blow you away. You have to see it with your own eyes than rely solely on a leaked photo online.
Guest performer Ne-Yo also provided a very apt song number that will raise the temperature levels inside the Impact Arena even more, while Host Steve Harvey kept the audience in stitches with his funny ad-libs.
BTW, the mock Top 5 during the final rehearsals were Albania, Ghana, Russia, Sri Lanka and Barbados.
As is traditional during technical rehearsals, a member of the production was “crowned” Miss Universe instead of one of the mock Final 3 (Sri Lanka, Ghana and Barbados)
One-Night Only for Ne-Yo. Remember the date: January 9, 2010
If you’re a fan of R&B singer-songwriter Ne-Yo (Shaffer Chimere Smith in real life), then you’re up for a big treat. The Gentleman is coming to Manila next month for a one-night only concert at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds on the night of January 9, 2010. Credited for hit songs like “Closer”, “Go On Girl”, “Can We Chill” and “Miss Independent”, he will surely fill the concert venue to the rafters with his heavy fan base in the Philippines.
Tickets can be bought online via Ticketworld or in one of their several outlets around the metro.
Here’s a video of Ne-Yo with one of his biggest hits “Closer”:
