While there was plenty of action at the 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards on Tuesday, will.i.am, apl.de.ap and 2NE1′s CL stole the show with a knockout performance of the Black Eyed Peas‘ ‘Where Is the Love?’.
The two BEP members took the stage with the celebrated Korean singer/rapper, much to the delight of the packed crowd at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. While Fergie was nowhere to be found, CL held her own in the performance of the Peas’ 2003 smash single, unleashing her bold vocals and keeping up with will.i.am and apl.de.ap’s flow.
Recently, reports claimed that Fergie would be leaving the Black Eyed Peas to start a family and that the group was looking to replace her. However, will.i.am took to Twitter to squash the rumors. “Fergie will never be replaced…she is our sister,” he wrote. “@bep family is more than just a musical group…#stoptherumors.”
The 2011 MAMAs took place on Nov. 29, honoring the best in Korean music. CL had more to celebrate than her performance with will.i.am and apl.de.ap — 2NE1 went on to win Song of the Year for ‘I Am the Best.’
