Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo had said that an international artist with Filipino roots would perform during the Miss Universe coronation night, with fans bringing up the name of Bruno Mars. But Tourism Undersecretary Katherine De Castro said Mars would not be able to perform in the pageant due to rehearsals for his world tour.
