The winner was curated towards a new Korean look by the K-Pop group’s stylist and received a wardrobe makeover. She strutted proudly on stage as the boys serenaded her. Their show culminated with a fan favourite, “Party Rock”.
As Yuna was elevated elegantly on to the stage, the crowd gave a rousing welcome to their home girl. She mesmerized fans as she performed “Rescue” with her ukulele. The Malaysian superstar then wrapped up her set with an absolutely magical performance of “Come Back”.
