Last Sunday, thousands of music lovers gathered at Surf Beach at Sunway
Lagoon just to catch a glimpse of their favourite artistes performing at
MTV World Stage 2013.
Presented by MTV Asia VJs Alan Wong and Hanli Hoefer, this year's stellar line-up included a hefty mix of R&B, hip-hop and K-pop performances. Matthew Zachary, the first-ever MTV World Stage Insider, was also on hand to post live updates on all the action that took place during the show.
First up on stage was Malaysia's very own Joe Flizzow, who did his hometown proud by performing five songs
(Iller Iller, Untukmu, All Around My World, Havoc and Who Do It
Better), which included a collaboration with SonaOne and Altimet on
This was followed by the much-anticipated performance by EXO, which also
happens to be their first performance in Malaysia as a full-member
group and on MTV. Their dedicated fans were reportedly queuing up since Friday
night, and the preppy-looking boys were determined to give them a good
show by performing History, 365 and Growl.
Next up was Asian-American group Far East Movement (FM), who kept the
crowd energetic with an insane twelve-song medley which included hits
like Ain’t Coming Down X Wild Things, Like a G6, Illest, So What, If I
was You, Jello, Change Your Life, Rocket, Get Up (Rattle), Rocketeer,
and Live My Life. Those fun-loving guys also took the time to show off their
whacky side: J-Splif was seen keeping the beat using a customized "iPad station" while DJ Virman performed a solo while wearing a ‘duck-head’
costume, before Prohgress decided to go 'crowd-surfing' along with a
larger-than-life inflatable duck.
Of course, the show would not have been complete without a performance
by the man of the moment, Robin Thicke. Accompanied by three sexy female
vocalists, Thicke delivered a total of nine soulful songs against the
backdrop of Sunway Lagoon, including Give It To You, Take It Easy on Me,
Feel Good, Oh Shooter, Lost Without U, Shaking It For Daddy and Blurred
Lines. The show concluded with an explosion of fireworks during in his
final performance with Clique.
All in all, it was definitely worth the
wait and standing around in the drizzling weather. Check out the clip below for all the highlights from the event:
