Wonder Girls Debut in U.S. at Jonas Brothers’ Concert
The girl band Wonder Girls debuted in the United States with the English version of its song “Nobody” on June 27. The band released the song as a digital single and performed it at the concert of the popular American band Jonas Brothers in Oregon.
Wearing glittery purple costumes, the Wonder Girls performed “Tell Me” by using cute dance moves and evoking cheers from some 20,000 people in the audience. Kevin Jonas, the leader of the Jonas Brothers, lauded the band for its perfect choreography and in an unprecedented move personally went onstage to introduce the Wonder Girls to the audience.
Kevin called the Wonder Girls “the most magnificent group in Asia” and invited the audience to get up from the seats to dance along with the Wonder Girls. When the group began performing “Nobody” wearing white dresses, the audience rose from the seats to enjoy the music. During the rehearsal, Joe Jonas even danced along with the Wonder Girls. After the concert, the Wonder Girls and Honor Society, which opened the concert, held a fan meeting. Following their activities in Oregon, the Wonder Girls will visit Seattle.
A person from JYP Entertainment said the Wonder Girls have taken on a big challenge and that everyone is looking forward to seeing whether the band’s hit songs will receive a favorable response in the United States as well.
The English version of “Nobody” was released in Korea on June 29.
