MANILA, Philippines – Music has united everyone at the second MTV Music Evolution.

People of all ages, with different music genre preferences sang and danced all night to the all-out performance of the six artists this year, which happened on Friday at the SM Mall of Asia concert grounds.

The night was opened by Gary Valenciano and his son Gabriel Valenciano. As Mr. Pure Energy gets everyone singing along to his hits like “'Di bale na lang kaya,” “Hataw na” and “Babalik ka rin,” Gab, on the other hand, made everyone dance to the beat.

Second to perform is the Kapamilya love team James Reid and Nadine Lustre, who performed both their solo and duet hits.

James sang “Randomantic” and “Bonfire,” while Nadine after a long while sang “Me and You” which her fans have missed.

Of course, there were kilig moments in their performance of “Bahala na,” “Hanap-hanap” and “No Erase.”

The first foreign act who rocked the stage was Bebe Rexha who looked like a rock star Barbie doll.

Bebe Rexha inspired and reminded everyone that “if no one got your back, if you feel no one is there to love you, you got to love yourself. You have to have your back. Put yourself above all.” She then performed her song “Me, Myself and I.”

She also sang the song “Monsters,” her original song and composition which was revived by Eminem. She also performed “Take me Home" and “No Broken Hearts in the Club.”

The Korean pop group Apink was also present that night, with production filled with dance steps, cute smiles and lively beats.

Far East Movement was also there making everyone dance and sing in every beat of their hits like “G6” and “Rocketeer.”

The last to perform that night is the American pop-rock band One Republic who performed their popular hits like “Secret,” “Stop and Stare,” Apologize” and “Counting Stars.”

Here’s a sample of their performance “Whever I Go” posted by MTV Asia on their Facebook page.
