After her performance on the recent episode of “The Singer 2018”, KZ Tandingan is hoping that she made Filipinos proud, despite her ranking in the singing competition.
Tandingan rocked out to Sheryl Crow’s “Real Gone”, a song that she hasn’t heard before.
Even though many praised her performance, she ranked as one of the bottom three contestants with Taiwanese singer Angela Chang and Chinese singer James Li.
The performers in the Top 4 were Chinese singers Tengger (2nd), Hua Chenyu (3rd), and Henry Huo (4th).
“Gave everything, every single ounce of strength, and my little heart for every performance. Regardless of the ranking, I hope you guys are proud to be Filipino, because I am, even in a foreign land,” she said on Twitter.

Don't let the rankings define you. It is only temporary.
What will remain is how you fight until the end. "You fought a good fight of faith."
