For Jake Zyrus, it was a dream come true to perform a version "Smells Like Teen Spirit", a hit popularized by his favorite band Nirvana! And to perform it on the MYX Music Awards stage over two years ago, it even made the moment unforgettable.

The singer recalled the said special moment during our MYXclusive interview and described it as an achivement. "Kasi syempre isa sa mga achievements ko 'yung nakaperform ako singing the song that changed my life talaga," Jake said.

"Sobrang thankful talaga ako na nabigyan talaga ako ng chance to showcase 'yung side ko na 'yun na which is I really love talaga.", he added while reminiscing his special number with Mayonnaise during the MYX Music Awards 2016.

It was the same he released the album, Catharsis. A record he claims showed his true identity as an artist and as a songwriter.
