This is the quartet’s very first performance in Malaysia, since their formation in 2009. Made up of CL, Minzy, Dara and Bom, the group’s name 2NE1 is a combination of the phrases “21st century” and “new evolution”. The group first surfaced in LG Electronics commercial campaign, “Lollipop” alongside another K-Pop sensation Big Bang. They subsequently released their debut single “Fire” that same year.

Since then, the group has released two extended plays, 2NE1 and 2NE1 2nd Mini Album, and one studio album, To Anyone. 2NE1 are also twice Song of the Year winners at the prestigious Mnet Asian Music Awards. After bagging the award with their single “I Don’t Care” in 2009, the quartet was again recipients of the accolade in 2011 with “I Am The Best”.

Also a new addition to the showcase of Malaysian artists is One Nation Emcees.
