Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray strutted her iconic “lava walk” as she reunites with Ne-Yo on stage during the first day of the R&B artist’s concert at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

“Huhu got to the share the stage with @NeYoCompound twice (whaaat) huhu my fangirl heart is so happy,” she wrote in a tweet.

Four years ago, they shared a moment on stage during the Miss Universe grand coronation night in Thailand. 

The singer performed his hit “Miss Independent” while Catriona flaunted her iconic “lava walk.”

During the concert, Ne-yo initially did not recognize Catriona, who went up onstage when he chose a member of the audience to serenade. 

“Ma’am, what’s your name?” Ne-Yo asked Catriona.

“My name is Catriona. I actually walked with you in Thailand. I’m Miss Universe,” Catriona answered. 

After the singer recognized the beauty queen, Ne-Yo gave Catriona a warm hug. 

Ne-yo then serenaded Catriona as she recreates her iconic walk.

Last October, Catriona expressed her excitement over Ne-Yo’s concert in Manila.

She also jokingly responded to a Twitter user if she would recreate her “lava walk.”

“Lava walk part 2?” she jokingly said.

Some of Ne-Yo’s hit songs are “Because of You,” “Closer” and “So Sick,” and  “Mad” among many others.
