JJ Project and San E elevated the atmosphere with their hiptronica tracks while 2AM showed perfect harmony, completely filling the stadium with their soulful voices.

Park wrapped up the solo stages with a charisma all his own, proving once again why he’s Asia’s greatest producer and dance singer.
That wasn’t the end there, though, as Jo Kwon and JOO then teamed up to perform a self-composed song by Junsu titled “Hanarete Itemo” while Taecyeon and Yenny performed “After You Left Me” as a duet.
J.Y. Park, Changmin, Taecyeon, and Junho covered the Wonder Girls’ “Be My Baby” while Chansung, Wooyoung, Seulong, and JB showed off their masculine sides with “Bad Boy Good Boy“.
