For just one hour on Friday (Sep 21) night, king of Mandopop Jay Chou performed at the Padang for the 2012 Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix.
The 33-year-old Taiwanese singer-songwriter was in pretty good form, reported The Straits Times.
However, the volume for the vocals seemed rather soft and muffled at points, compared to the deafening roar of the race car engines earlier in the night.
Lighting was effective and made a dramatic impact on the open-air stage settings, said The Straits Times.
Jay belted out familiar tunes, particularly older hits such as "Can't Open My Mouth".
Lead singer of American rock band Maroon 5 Adam Levine blew audiences away with their closing music act of the second day.
Singing hits such as She Will Be Loved and This Love, he had fans screaming as he hit the high notes effortlessly.
But the highlight of the evening came when Levine performed speedy solo runs on a selection of electric guitars, giving main guitarist James Valentine a run for his money.
According to organisers, the crowd size was estimated to be at 35,000.
