On sunday the day had come. It was time for the first live-show of Austrias Next KPOP Star. The Event was scheduled for 5PM, but already at a quarter to 5PM the little waiting room, was filled with guests. Everyone was standing inside the room, because it was too cold, to wait outside. The doors for the event-room opened at half past 5PM, due to technichal difficulties. Everybody was talking about KPOP stuff meanwhile.
As the doors opened, all the people rushed in. Almost like at a concert from an already famous singer. After a minute, every seat was taken, and many people stood in the backpart of the room.
After a short introduction, the first candidate started to perform his song. Before they started to sing, a little clip about the candidate has been shown.
Almost all the harmonies (background-vocals) have been recorded by the candidates.
