MTV World Stage Live In Malaysia 2012 was held at Surf Beach @ Sunway Lagoon on 15 July 2012. As usual, MTV Asia threw a great party and VJ Rich and VJ Holly warmed up the crowd in-between performers.
This time around, we got to see Justin Bieber, KARA, Mizz Nina and Jay Park on stage!
There were 16,000 people at the concert!
MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia 2012 kicked off at around 6:30pm. This year, the weather was great! No rain! Yay!
Justin Bieber makes the Beliebers cry
Global superstar Justin Bieber opened the concert because he had to fly to Australia for another gig the next day. Next was KARA, then Mizz Nina and Jay Park had the honour of being the finale.
No doubt the biggest act for the night, Bieber came with his entourage – full band, backup singers, dancers and DJ Tay James.
KARA with their sexy dance moves
South Korean babes KARA burst onto stage without much announcement. The slim beauties were dressed in black hot pants and matching sequined top. Their backup dancers were in red – to compliment the group.
Kamilias were happy to see Park Gyu Ri, Han Seung Yeon, Goo Ha Ra, Nicole Jung and Kang Ji Young performing for the very first time in Malaysia!
KARA sang six songs — which felt way too short! The fans wanted more!
They kicked off with “Step”, accompanied by ten backup dancers. Next was “Jumping”, “Lupin” and “Honey”. They also had a treat for fans at World Stage Malaysia and performed “Let It Go” from their album Wanna for the first time on stage.
Can you guess what song they ended with?
MISTER MISTER — and that famous butt dance came on next! The fans (guys especially) went wild!
Party with Mizz Nina
Next Mizz Nina, a home-grown Malaysian act thrilled the crowd with her vibrant backup dancers. Mizz Nina partied with the crowd with her hit “What You Waiting For” as her last song.
JAY PARK gets to end the show
True to the saying — “Save the best for last” Korean-American Jay Park was the final performer at the MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia 2012 party.
He performed AOM 1llionaire, Abandoned, Know Your Name (Korean version) and Carefree.
Next was a medley of Nothing and Girlfriend — the English version. It was Jay’s first time singing the English version of this popular hit for Jaywalkers. They loved it! He also sang I got Your Back and Star.
Next was the very sexy Turn Off Your Phone. Before doing this number, he apologized to the guys in the audience. The girls were screaming at his signature ab flashes throughout the song. We counted 5 or 6 times?
He also sang Do What We Do and then performed Body2Body.
If you missed the concert or would like to watch it again, MTV Asia will be airing it soon.
The 2-hour TV show premieres on MTV SEA channel on Saturday 28 July 2012, 12:30pm (WIB), 1:30pm (SG/HK/PHIL) and 2:30pm (MAL).
