Actress-dancer Ella Cruz just had another ultimate fangirling moment after performing an impressive dance number in front of her idols, the members of the K-pop group BLACKPINK yesterday, January 14, in Indonesia.
Ella and her team, SB New Gen Daphny Red and Eunice Creus, flew all the way to Jakarta, Indonesia as Philippine representatives to a dance competition hosted by Samsung, which the BLACKPIINK is endorsing.
Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, and Rosé—the members of the popular South Korean girl group—were all present at the event to promote the new Samsung Galaxy phone.
Ella, along with two SB New Gen members, set the stage ablaze as they danced to BLACKPINK’s hit songs Kill This Love and DDU-DU DDU-DU.
Their jaw-dropping performance made headlines because they were able to wow the BLACKPINK members. In fact, Lisa, who’s known for being her group’s dancing machine, was awe-struck with their dance moves.
At the end of the competition, Ella and her team bagged the Awesome Cover award! They even got to interact with the BLACKPINK members and had photo ops with them!
On Instagram, Ella uploaded glimpses of her experience at the event. She also uploaded her group’s whole performance on her Youtube Channel earlier today!
Ella’s once-in-a-blue-moon experience made some of her celebrity friends and fans, who are also BLINKs (how the group’s fans call themselves) wishing that they were in her shoes.
She was also showered with love, support, and congratulatory messages in the comment section.
Congratulations, Ella, Daphny, and Eunice! You girls represented the country well!
