Wonder Girls at the United Nations: U.N DAY

Wonder Girls perform with Stevie Wonder / are photographed with United Nations secretary Ban Ki Moon for UN Day Concert



"In celebration of the 67th anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations Organization, the 2012 UN Day Concert: "A Message of Peace featuring Stevie Wonder” took place on Wednesday, 24 October 2012 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the General Assembly Hall at UN Headquarters in New York.

The concert was sponsored by United Nations Messenger of Peace Mr. Stevie Wonder, in partnership with Black Entertainment Television."



This performance was only scheduled two days before the show and they did not have time to rehearse until a few hours before since they were in Houston the night before, so it's not their best, however, they performed two songs:

What The World Needs Now Is Love with Stevie Wonder (here)
Like Money with a Live Band, introduced by Stevie. You can watch it here.

They also came back on stage for the closing number with the rest of the performers, including Doug E. Fresh.

"They performed for a crowd including the under-Secretary-General Peter Launsky-Tieffenthal of the Department of Public Information, the UN Secretary-General, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, the President of the 67th Session of the General Assembly, Mr. Vuk Jeremic, and the Chief Executive Officer of Black Entertainment Television, Ms. Debra Lee."

I can't believe they wore bootyshorts at the UN. I love them so much <3
odd_fish_stick 26th-Oct-2012 04:46 am (UTC)
lol yeah they should have worn something more solemn... like their pink power suits XD
pivotandsway 26th-Oct-2012 04:48 am (UTC)
Lmao. I love those suits! Their so fitted in all the right places. I need one for my career woman concept. I actually hate their "Like Money" outfits idk who designed them but they need to be put on leave.
devilsatin 26th-Oct-2012 04:52 am (UTC)
They need to get whoever styles them in Japan to work for them full time. I'm not even sure they have one in america...
pivotandsway 26th-Oct-2012 05:06 am (UTC)
Oh yeah. Their dresses in nobody (not the gold ones) were really nice. They should have worn their Wonder Best suits actually.
odd_fish_stick 26th-Oct-2012 04:53 am (UTC)
gurl i'm having one made forreal lol
yeah i hate them too, idk who though that was okay. the only good one is Sohee's. Lim's is horrendous and so is sun's.
pivotandsway 26th-Oct-2012 05:03 am (UTC)
I love how before the iheartradio thing they were like "we're premiering new outfits!" and it was just these same ones but in black. they looked like they were going to a really sad beach in the 1930s. I'll have to send them some moodboards for "Wake Up" or w/e song they're going to do next so this doesn't happen again. You know JYP loves getting advice as long as it's free.

Sohee's at iheartradio was really cute up close though! I don't care for the others'
kiki3291 26th-Oct-2012 07:06 am (UTC)
Seriously. Lol, it looks so odd... Would have just made them wear what they wore for rehearsals.
surisays 26th-Oct-2012 08:11 am (UTC)
not to mention they are poorly fitted shorts. yubin and yenny are rocking some cameltoe there...
pivotandsway 26th-Oct-2012 04:49 am (UTC)
Also I wish they had done a song like "What the World Needs Now Is Love" for the cover the world thing. It would sound so perfect if they sat down and recorded it, better than "True Colors". It's such an honor that they got to perform at the UN w/ Stevie Wonder. I'm so proud of them ^__^
devilsatin 26th-Oct-2012 04:51 am (UTC)
Wow I can't believe they got to perform with Stevie Wonder! I'm so proud of them :-)
odd_fish_stick 26th-Oct-2012 04:55 am (UTC)
yeeun was fangirling so hard lol
markthatcoin 26th-Oct-2012 05:04 am (UTC)
good for them :) i still remember hearing nobody on repeat in asia in 2009!

hehe Like Money playing in front of the UN. the Nobel concerts always feel random to me too (love robyn with her ridiculous shoes but rly?). but i love that song and that i hear it on the radio in the midwest.
risesandtides 26th-Oct-2012 05:44 am (UTC)
is seohyun ok with this

Stevie Wonder~~ Yeeun's dream come true~~

I am left here wondering (once again) why the hell they went to the trouble of filming the mv with those outfits if they were never going to rock them. I hate these, they are so unappealing and only Sohee's looks okayish. Goddam, did JYP blow up his budget and decide to go for a rent-for-a-day outfit??
gypsy_sonata 26th-Oct-2012 07:52 am (UTC)
those outfits are not good.
soramai 26th-Oct-2012 09:19 am (UTC)
like others say their outfits are meh! But I'm so proud of them!!
noneko 26th-Oct-2012 12:07 pm (UTC)
I wish they had worn different outfits. It's the UN, not a concert hall.
phililen3 26th-Oct-2012 02:03 pm (UTC)
Those pants don't fit right.... Stylist.....
yasmine2009 26th-Oct-2012 02:59 pm (UTC)
I'm so happy I'm not the only person disturbed by those outfits! I saw a picture on Tumblr were Yeeun's camel toe was so bad it damn near came out my screen and slapped me.

Anyway, I'm so proud of them getting to perform with such a legend! ;-;

Calm down people Stevie performs with anyone. He did a medley with The Jonas Brothers.
Not cute coochie cutters with UN officials.
I heard the song too, nice they are getting visually well-known.
