Feeling proud and privileged sina James Reid at Nadine Lustre dahil napili sila bilang representative ng Pilipinas sa biggest international concert event ng MTV, ang MTV Music Evolution Manila 2016 na ginanap sa SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds last June 24.
Ang famous international artists na kasama ng Jadine sa MTV Music Evolution Manila 2016 ay ang singer na si Bebe Rexha, K-Pop all-girls group Apink, at ang mga banda na Far East Movement at One Republic.
Nag-perform din si Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano at ang kanyang anak na si Gab Valenciano.
“I was happy and then when I heard OneRepublic was coming with other international artists I literally freaked out,” excited na bungad ni James sa ginanap na presscon sa Sofitel Hotel, Pasay City bago ang concert.
“I was so excited for the OneRepublic guys.
“This is a very big step for us so we're so proud to get this far and to perform among international artists and to be recognized as among the best in the Philippines.”
Dagdag naman ni Nadine, “It’s amazing.”
Sino ang favorite artist nila sa concert?
“Of course OneRepublic I can't deny it. I'm really psyched to see them and my personal idol Gary Valenciano,” pag-amin ni James.
What kind of preparation ang ginawa nila ni Nadine?
“Actually since we got back last week, we've been working everyday straight so we had to do a really quick rehearsal,” paliwanag ni James.
Despite the many concerts na ginawa nila inside and outside the country, may stage fright pa rin ba sila?
“Yes I do, every time,” ngiti ni Nadine.
“Well maybe it's because I want to do good that's why I get nervous but when I go on stage it goes away.”
“I still get butterflies in my stomach but once you feel the adrenaline it helps me.”
Ano ang pagkakaiba ng local audiences sa international viewers?
“Well it's really not that much different. It's really not. At the end of the day they're all still Filipinos and so it's like bringing the whole Filipino community of Calgary, San Francisco, and New York so it's really not that different.
“It's amazing to be able to greet all our fans and followers of On The Wings Of Love and those who love our music so that was an amazing experience.”
Sa tingin nila, what’s the best song that describes their relationship?
“Thank you for an amazing question. It's a pretty hard question,” na tila nahirapang mag-isip na sagot ni James.
“Off the top of my head, it's 'Firestone' by Kygo I love that song. I always use it as a caption in my Instagram page."
Pagsalo naman ni Nadine kay James, "Kasi it's a really, really nice song.”
Ang naturang kanta ay may lyrics na: Our hearts are like firestones / And when they strike, we feel the love / Sparks will fly, they ignite our bones / And when they strike, we light up the world
May theme song ba sila?
“Actually it's the song we used in our travel video.”
Pwede ba nilang i-describe ang journey ng kanilang respective careers?
“Unexpected,” diin ni James. “I never really planned to enter showbusines so I guess it's unexpected.”
“I was already studying,” na ang tinutukoy ni Nadine noong nagsimula siya bilang member ng Popgirls.
“I mean I probably was going to quit showbiz but then the Diary ng Panget happened. Popgirls was a stepping stone for me. I was still studying at that time.
“All our outfits were so colorful, sobrang the dances were cutesy. I guess I've matured now. I guess I'm a little more serious now.”
Ano ang asset ng loveteam nila?
“As a musical artist, I think it's the fact that we can also dance. That helps a lot because it gives us that much more energy on stage. But other than that, it's also because of our following. Our fans are amazing.”
Paano sila nagpre-prepare every time magta-travel sila?
“I’m terrible at it,” natatawang sabi ni James.
Ayon naman kay Nadine, “I always bring toiletries for two, toothbrushes for two and then I never leave my cameras."
How does James let Nadine know she's beautiful?
“I guess I do tell her that she's beautiful everyday.”
Do you have the same taste in music?
“Yes we do,” sabay tingin niya kay Nadine.
“Mine is more R&B and hip-hop. Nadine is more of indie. It's really more pop. I don't know but I feel like when we're together it's a slow R&B song.”
Samantala, nagbigay ng update ang JaDine sa mga upcoming projects nila this year.
“With regards to music, I have an album coming up soon and also Nadine. We did a teleserye and a movie but now we're really excited for the book,” pahayag ni James.
“Right now we're just really focusing on our careers, on acting and singing but hopefully, of course, I'll be doing some things like maybe directing or something. We'll see,” sambit ni Nadine.
If plans will not miscarry, maglalabas ng bagong album si Nadine sa August.
“Yes, but James' album is almost done so you can look forward to that."
