Fans could not contain their excitement at the sight of Tony Labrusca and Kisses Delavin sharing the stage at Kisses' first-ever concert, Confidently Kisses at the Kia Theater. The emerging love team known as #KissTon wowed the crowd with a performance of “Rewrite the Stars” from the film The Greatest Showman.
After the performance, Tony and Kisses shared a few words for their fans onstage. Kisses shared in jest, “Bago ang lahat gusto ko lang pong sabihin na itong si Tony, napakabait kasi kahit gaano ako kabigat, kinakarga niya ako.” Tony then replied with a message “Napaka-special nitong night na to para kay Kisses. Unang-una gusto kong magpasalamat sayo [dahil] ininvite mo ko. And of course, I want to congratulate you on this amazing concert—your very first concert. I am so happy that I get to be part of this special day for you, ‘cause I know that for the rest of your career, you will remember this day, kaya I am blessed to be part of it.”
In an interview, Kisses talked about their preparations for the surprise concert number and how this strengthened their friendship even more. She said: “Noong una natakot ako eh kasi siyempre ano eh parang na-build ‘yung friendship namin talaga nong dance na kasi you need to trust your partner kung hindi ka mahawakan hulog ka.” She added, “Talagang pinaghirapan namin ‘yun ni Tony. Dugo at pawis. Literal na dugo at pawis ‘yung nangyari dun. As in nasubsob kami, kung ano na nangyari, ang daming injury pero nagawa namin ng perfect. I’m so happy.”
After the The Greatest Showman tribute, the two also performed a cover of the song "Pag-ibig na Kaya," much to the delight of the fans.
