The night began with a bang like no other. A huge LED screen with the words “Born To Be” lit up the venue, and music began to blare. Just as you thought you knew what would happen next, the screen began to lift, revealing none other than the queens of performance themselves.

The opening performance of “Born To Be” established the tone for the night as the girls seamlessly transitioned into the songs “Racer,” “Kidding Me,” and “Mr. Vampire” without a break.

Some of the highlights of the night were the solos! Chaeryeong opened with her solo song “Mine,” which she described as a personal song that reveals her heart. Her performance highlighted her talent through intricate dance moves paired with slick and sensual vocals.

Ryujin performed her pop rock-inspired song ‘Run Away.’ During the talk portion of the show, she explained that the song is about a significant other who doesn’t want to be the bad guy and break things off first, so she takes the blame and becomes the villain. Her performance highlighted her edgy side, matched with a soft girl aesthetic that perfectly encapsulates Ryujin’s aura.

Yuna, looked lovely in baby blue as she sang her song “Yet, But,” a light-hearted pop tune about turning someone’s frown upside down. The solo performances were outstanding, with each member shining in their own right. Yeji ended the solo section with a powerful performance that had the entire audience on their feet, screaming their hearts out.

Toward the end of the show, the audience played a game that put them directly in the spotlight. The game had the crowd participate in a variety of challenges such as speed dancing, random dance play, and even a scream challenge. The game was a joyous activity that really brought the audience together, as each person cheered for their fellow MIDZY.

Overall, ITZY put on a performance that fans are sure to remember for years to come.
