Miss Diadi’s genuine reactions to Ian Veneracion’s performance captivate social media users

The video of beauty queen Melar Claire Romero of Diadi went viral, showing her seemingly forgetting that she was one of the candidates in Saniata ti Nueva Vizcaya 2024 after seeing actor Ian Veneracion singing.

In the video that circulated wide on social media, it can be seen that while the other contestants remained poised and stood still as the actor sang, Miss Diadi could not contain her inner fangirl. Romero can be seen excitedly being lifted by the singing Ian. The actor gave a lot of fan service by kissing the contestant’s hand. Apart from this, the candidate also hugged the actor. She truly enjoyed every moment with the famous actor.
