After their performance, Angel Locsin explained that, “Ako kasi parang hindi ko kaya na makita kayo na nagsasayaw na naka-underwear para lang sa amin. Masyado kayo magaganda at masyado niyo ’tong pinaghirapan para gawin ’yan. Kung may talent kayo, ’yun ang ipakita niyo sa’min dahil talent ang hinahanap namin dito, hindi katawan. Kaya ko kayo binuzz, ayaw kong ma-objectify kayo, masyado ako nagmamalasakit para sa inyo para i-go ko ’to.”

Many Filipinos supported her opinion but some were not happy from what she have said.
