Here we go! I’m finally blogging about my experience at the MTV World Stage Malaysia 2014. It was my first time to be invited by MTV Asia to attend the huge concert and I had so much fun. The concert was held on Surf Beach, Sunway Lagoon on a Saturday night (meaning a whole lot of people attended because there was no work the following day) and what I mean by that is over 10,000 fans attended the concert! The line up of performers were Thaitanium, Boys Republic, B.o.B. and Yuna. You can’t bring any SLR and digital cameras inside- only cellphones were allowed. Good thing MTV Asia provided the media with photos so we get to share our wonderful experiences with you guys.
With the help of MTV VJs Hanli and Alan, the crowd was full of energy and excitement!
First performer of the night: Thaitanium. They opened the night and wowed the audience with an upbeat 11-track medley, which included an inaugural performance of their new single with Snoop Dogg, “Wake Up (Bangkok City)”. I also got a chance to see them afterwards in Changkat! Woot!
Boys Republic. Can I just say, I was totally in awe when I saw how well they performed. No wonder they have fans all over the world. The boys really know how to charm the audience as they interacted with the fans and expressed their love now that it’s their second time in Malaysia.
They surprised everyone with a maiden performance on the MTV World Malaysia wherein fans were asked to post a 15-seconds video clip on Intsagram with the hashtag #worldstagemyfancam and one lucky fan was introduced to “Dress Up”. The winner was given a new Korean look by Boys Republic’s stylist and walked on stage with confidence while the boys serenaded her. I wanted to be that girl!!!
The crowd went wild when home girl Yuna came up on stage. I really loved her performance and her voice is just amazing. Everyone, including me, got mesmerised by her talent and beauty. She also sang a couple of local songs and had everyone head over heels for her. I’ve actually watched some of her Youtube videos and seriously, her voice is 10x more spectacular in person. I hope she gets to visit our country too!
I swear, you’ll really fall in love with her voice. I did. Sometimes, I listen to it before I sleep because it’s so soothing.
And the last performer of the night: B.o.B. got everyone’s energy all up when he kicked off his set with a spectacular display of lights as his backdrop. All his songs were upbeat and it got everyone to dance like no one’s watching. When he sang “Magic”, he was giving high-fives to his fans and I could hear everyone screaming and singing to his song.
I loved how we dedicated his song “Airplanes” featuring Hayley Williams to all those who had lost loved ones in recent tragedies. The best part of his performance was when he went crowd surfing before his finale! Now that’s what I call a fun performance!
Thank you so muchMTV Asia and Viacom International Media Networks for giving me a chance to experience World Stage Malaysia 2014. I had so much fun and the after party was great too! When I got to interview the artists, I got more excited about the concert and of course, as expected, it met my expectations. I’m really looking forward to next year’s event and hopefully, I get to attend again.
