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.
