Xian Lim asked a hug from Kim Chiu but he got more than that during his Songs in the Key of X concert.
During his July 15 concert, Xian felt so nervous when he performed at the Theatre at Solaire that he had to ask help from Kim to relieve his tension.
Xian admitted that he was feeling nervous and audience members told him that Kim had already arrived at the venue.
"Saan si Kim?" asked Xian as he went down the stage to approach her seat.
He asked her for a hug and some concertgoers could be heard shouting, "Pagbigyan mo na."
Xian told her, "Kinakabahan talaga ako. Hug lang. Hug lang."
He then told his KimXi love team partner, "Thank you for coming," before giving her a hug. Xian also kissed her on the head before he went back onstage.
Xian performed "Beauty and Madness," which according to him is a favorite song of Kim.
The actor also said he dedicated this song to Kim with lyrics that go: "Who will see the beauty in your life, And who will be there to hear you when you call."
ON JUSTIN BIEBER. A few days ago, Kim became viral when Justin Bieber gave her a shoutout in his Instagram Live video.
This paved the way for the ABS-CBN actress to be featured in New York-based publications Teen Vogue and InStyle.
Last night, Xian and Matteo Guidicelli performed "Treat You Better."
This prompted Matteo to quip, "Hey Justin Bieber, Xian can treat Kim better."
Matteo also reminded Xian, "I know so many love secrets. That you fought in Hawaii before."
After the concert, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other reporters had the chance to interview Xian backstage.
When asked for his message for Justin Bieber, Xian said: "Watch my 'Despacito.'"
This Spanglish remix is a collaboration between Justin and Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee.
Xian took a month to prepare his own remix of "Despacito" and he danced to it during his concert.
Matteo Guidicelli teased Xian Lim about Justin Bieber who noticed Kim Chiu on Instagram recently. "Gagalingan natin," quipped Matteo.
