also Faiz who performed Super Junior Yesung’s ‘Paper Gray’ very well. The crowd’s
favourite, Isaac who included EXO’s latest choreography from ‘Overdose’ in his
medley performance received hot responds and loud cheers from the crowd. Same
goes to Alex who performed a fusion dance and also did a short rap when requested

One of the contestants may be the next 10th member of AlphaBAT and the result is

After a long wait, AlphaBAT finally appeared
and greet the Alphas, the name for AlphaBAT's fans. B:eta said that Malaysia is a
beautiful country and they really love to be here. B:eta also said that Malaysian Alphas
are pretty and I:ota quickly replied “like me..Pretty like me”. His joke makes the crowd
burst in laughter.
AphaBAT has performed total of 6 songs, starting with a cover of DBSK’s Love in the
Ice. AlphaBAT’s powerful vocals and rap definitely amazed the crowd, as it is known
by K-pop music fans that DBSK's songs are always a huge challenge to cover, even
by fellow K-idols. They continued to amaze Alphas, old and new with their song,
Always. According to B:eta, Always is a very meaningful song for them and every
member took part in the production of the song. They hope that they can stay together
as AlphaBAT and Alpha will always be with them until the end.
continued when they boys hit the stage with their debut song, AB City and the
audience were going insane when the boys jumped off stage several times during
The crowd once again scream out loud when B:eta asked, “do you know Infinite?”
and there you go, Infinite’s Nothing’s Over by AlphaBAT! The boys also performed
B2ST’s Fiction which makes the crowd amazed to see their ‘penguin’ dance step.
Surprisingly, after ended their showcase performances with Ttantara, Bubble
Candies was being invited again to perform a short choreography of Tttantara.
AlphaBAT was totally impressed with those four little girls of Bubble Candies. B:eta
even said, “You good…now you’re AlphaBAT…I go…”.
A showcase is incomplete without a game session with fans! Nine lucky Alphas were
being chosen to be on stage with AlphaBAT and play “passing the rubber band’
game. Playful B:eta and I:ota always give laughter to the crowd. After the game
session, the nine lucky fans received a special gift which is handmade soap made
by AlphaBAT! When being asked why they gave the soap, they said the reason is
because they want their fans to stay clean.
The event was dubbed as the best so far, because of the uniqueness of its concept,
the collaboration with the guest performers, and the hand-made gift by the boys
themselves. They will next go to Tambun Lost World Resort Perak, for a funfilled
event with their fans, before finishing their event at the Scott's Garden, Diamond Club
on the 1st and interviews on the 2nd. They were scheduled to go back on the 3rd of
