During the episode, KZ peformed Lorde's "Royals."
According to a report from ABS-CBN, following her elimination from the episode, KZ said: "I will never forget this experience."
"My tears are a mix of happy and sad tears because I'm going to miss all of you. I hope to see you guys again. I love you."
KZ made her debut in the show last February, when she performed "Rolling In the Deep." She also got a chance to meet one of her favorite singers, Jessie J.
In a previous interview, KZ said that she was determined to beat her personal best in the show.
“I always make sure I do something different every week and do something surprising every week. [I] always push myself to do things I’ve never done before, na magugulat pati ‘yung mga tao dito sa Pilipinas na ‘di pa pala nila napapanood sa'kin ([things] that will be surprising even for Filipinos, [things] they haven't seen from me),” she said.
"Yun lang po muna ‘yung iniisip ko eh. Kasi kahit naman matanggal na ako this week or next week, as long as I give the best performance, ‘yun ang maaalala ng tao. So ‘yun po ang importante sa ‘kin.”
(That's all I'm thinking of for now. Because if I'm voted out this week or next week, as long as I give my best performance, that's what people will remember. So that's what's important to me.) – Rappler.com
