Zoey later posted in her Instagram a message to everyone who praised her for dancing “Single Ladies” during the Miss Universe rehearsals.

In a sweet Instagram post shared after the finals, the beauty queen thanked everyone for their support and all the sweet messages and love she is still getting. She wrote...

Thanks everyone for all the sweet messages and love I'm still getting! The girl with the natural curls and tattoos who does crazy dances to "Single Ladies" unfortunately didn't make it to the #Top13 of #MissUniverse. But I'll make the top of something else that comes on my path. This was not my destiny, but an experience I can add to my journey! My time in the #Philippines was indescribable and I will find it hard to leave you all!  I didn't win the crown, but I hope that I've won your hearts. Thanks everyone, keep loving yourself AND SEE YOU AT THE AFTERPARTYYYY

"They said we can relax during the rehearsal so when I heard the music I was just being me,” Ivory told the media. She further added, "At first I didn't even notice that people were looking at me. Then I started to hear the cheering and then I said, 'Oh my God, people are looking at me.' Then I went a little more full out.

Ivory told ABS CBN that she learned the choreography of the Beyonce hit after she was asked to perform it when she was 17. "Two men were going to get married and they asked me if I can perform 'Single Ladies' on their wedding because it's funny and they're gay," Ivory said.
