Following their captivating intro video, they performed “Burn It Up” off their first single album. This performance was followed by B.A.P’s “Unbreakable” with it’s strong beat and impressive vocals. Then they showed off a completely different side of themselves with their classy rapping style and emotional melody in “Secret Love“.
In addition, B.A.P’s Bang Yong Guk, Dae Hyun, and Zelo performed unit group songs which were released prior to the group’s debut including “I Remember” and “Never Give Up“. Other members prepared solo stages to bring attention to their individual talents as well.
TS Entertainment labelmate SECRET made a special appearance at the showcase as they performed their hit songs “Madonna” and “Love is Move” in hopes of B.A.P’s success.
“Thank you all for coming to B.A.P’s debut stage. We are so proud. We were jealous of other agencies who held family concerts. We’re happy now that we think we will have those kinds of opportunities.“
After about an hour of performances, B.A.P wrapped up their showcase with their first single’s title track “Warrior“. In alignment with the song’s concept of an alien who plans to take over the world, the spaceship like stage hyped up the audience as they gave an energy-filled performance.
