2NE1 performed in the heart of New York City in a passionate performance with 2,000 local fans.
The group held its first performance in America on December 12 at New York’s Times Square for MTV Iggy’s 2011 Best New Band in the World Concert.
2NE1, which won the contest to become the next generation’s best band of the world thanks to its global fans, performed in the concert as the headliner and winner, on a stage which previously invited global sensations Madonna, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears to perform.
The fans of New York continued to shout out 2NE1’s name even before the concert started, and as soon as the group appeared performing its debut single Fire, the crowd started cheering loudly to welcome the group to New York.
When 2NE1 sang Fire and Can’t Nobody, the theater instantly transformed into the hottest club in New York. The hot performances were continued with a calm showcase of the members’ vocals in Lonely, and the group said goodbye with its final stage, performing I Am the Best.
At the end of the performance, the members of 2NE1 received the crown prepared by MTV Iggy for the winner of the Best New Band in the World.
The members told enews through their agency YG Entertainment on December 13, “It felt great to see that many people knew us and knew the name of 2NE1. We were amazed and happy to see we were enjoying the performance together although we spoke different languages.”
Jeremy Scott even lent items from his 2012 S/S Collection to 2NE1 for the performance in New York, and continued to show his support by visiting the venue on the day of the performance to cheer for the group.
The performance was streamed live on a giant billboard in Times Square and also on the internet, letting many more global fans be with the group for its historical performance. 2NE1 plans to return to Korea on December 14.
