When Dawn voiced her observation about one group’s performance, the Unkabogable Vice Ganda teased Dawn if it was a ‘shady’ statement for Girltrends.

Meanwhile, Vice couldn’t keep himself from teasing Dawn. “Oh Girltrends pinariringan kayo, hanggang ngayon hindi pa tapos sa inyo si Dawn Chang. Gusto ko ‘yun yung hindi puro awra, tas may diin Dawn Chang ha?”
A few hours later, Girltrends member Chie Filomeno posted a dance rehearsal video on her Instagram with the following caption:
“All set. Don’t let people stop you from doing what you love most. Do what you need to do to make you happy. EEEH EEEH EEEEE MO LANG SILA. Hahaha char!”
