The ‘MBC Korean Music Wave in Google’ concert took place at 11am KST on May 22nd (local time, 7pm PDT on May 21st) in Shoreline Amphitheater, California, USA and was aired live worldwide simultaneously through YouTube.
On the previous day, SM artists performed at the ‘SM Town Live World Tour III in Los Angeles’ held at Honda Center in Anaheim in front of more than 12,000 fans. For the two concerts, the girls had to perform with only seven members as Yuri and YoonA were busy with their drama shoots.
The girls opened their performances with the English version of ‘The Boys’ and they covered YoonA and Yuri’s parts professionally throughout the song. Without an interpreter, the girls had some great time interacting with the audience.
Girls’ Generation then continued to captivate the audience with ‘Mr. Taxi’ and ‘Gee’. During the early part of their ‘Gee’ performance, there was a technical problem with the microphone. Nonetheless, the members kept their focus, showing no signs of panic and wrapped up their performances professionally.
‘MBC Korean Music Wave in Google’ was hosted by Taeyeon and Tiffany with great performances by some of the biggest stars of Kpop such as Girls’ Generation,TVXQ, Wonder Girls, Kara, Beast, MBLAQ, Sistar, f(x) and Super Junior. During Girls’ Generation’s performances the number of viewers rose to more than 119,000, which was the highest figure observed throughout the concert.
