Back in Singapore after two years, and this time for a full length concert, the Wonder Girls packed everything -- their grace, energy, stamina and most of all their unique style. Boasting a 22-track song list, the girls were intent on showing Singapore what they really are about. The concert promptly started at 7:30 PM local time, and the Wonder Girls' juniors from JYP Entertainment, JJ Project, was featured as the front act. JJ Project performed their defining debut tracks "Bounce" and "Hooked" from their debut album. The upbeat songs were a great way to get everyone in the mood for Wonder Girls' awesome performances.
The Wonder Girls then came on stage with "Like This" as their intro song. They continued on with "Nu Shoes" and "Sweet Dreams". Among other songs, "Like This" (Intro), "Be My Baby" (Song #16), "DJ is Mine" (Song #4) and "Like Money" (Song #21) hold significant importance as this was the first time they performed these songs in Singapore.
The Wonder Girls also paid homage to their host country during their performance of "R.E.A.L" (Song #15) as they transformed into Singaporean girls, donning the country's signature outfit for women, the sarong kebaya. During this performance, the Wonder Girls also gave treats to their fans by throwing candies to the audience.
As promised during the press conference, the Wonder Girls also showed different sides to themselves as they performed their songs using different musical genre flavors. One such memorable performance was the rock version of "Two Different Tears" (Song #8) wherein they performed with a guitar.
Yenny performed the popular "Hello To Myself" (Song # 7) from the Dream High 2 soundtrack. Yubin performed "So Hot" (Song #10) for the most parts, and joined by the rest of the members afterwards. After a ballad medley of "Feeling Sorry", "I tried", and "Wishing on a Star" (Song #10.5/11), the girls performed "Long Long Time" and "Girlfriend" (Songs #11 and 12) first as a group, before making way for Sun and Lim's solo stages. Sun performed "The Sound of Rain" and Miss A's "Touch" (Song #13) while Lim performed "Act Cool" (Song #14) and was joined by JJ Project.
After these, they then performed songs leading up to the finale with "G.NO", "Stop", "Bad Boy", "I Wanna" being the 17-20th songs of the night. They capped the night with "Tell Me" as the final song.
With the excitement from the crowd refusing to die down, the Wonder Girls return for an encore, this time wearing casual clothes. For their encore, they sang their monumental hit "Nobody". The crowd was genuinely inspired and awed with their performance.
The Wonder Girls continue on with their Asia Tour, Wonder World Tour, with Malaysia as the next stop on October 13. The tour is made possible by a collaboration of JYP Entertainment and CJE&M M Live Series.
