Mandopop king Jay Chou makes quick performance at F1 concert


Like a racer burning rubber on the tracks, Mandopop king Jay Chou was here and gone in a flash.

The 33-year-old Taiwanese singer-songwriter performed for an hour last night Sept 21 at the Padang stage for the 2012 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix.

He was in pretty good form though the volume for the vocals seemed rather soft and muffled at points, especially compared to the recent roar of the engines.

On a brighter note, the lighting was effective and made a dramatic impact in the open-air stage setting.
