SINGAPORE: It was a celebration full of song, dance and a magnificent display of fireworks as Singapore ushered in 2013 at the Marina Bay countdown.
Spectators thronged the Marina Bay area to soak up the celebrations as the nation counted down to the New Year!
And with a slew of performances... there was something for everyone.
Whether it was grooving to the beats of regional acts like Korean Hip Hop group M.I.B.... or homegrown talents like Taufik Batisah and John Klass and his band The Professionals.
One of the highlights of the night was from award winning musical group Jersey Boys.
Grant Almirall, Cast of Jersey Boys, said: "It’s an amazing opportunity to perform for Singapore. It’s raining at the moment but it’s a rain or shine event so we still will be performing anyway. Hopefully, the crowd will be cheered up and ready for us. So yeah, it’s going to be awesome."
Right after that, spectators were treated to an eight—minute fireworks display at the stroke of midnight.
