The inaugural “Social Star Awards 2013” held at Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by The Bay over three days from May 24 to 26 saw a star-studded line up that featured Aerosmith, Jessica Alba, Cee Lo Green, Carly Rae Jepsen, and PSY. It is the first of its kind to be held in celebration of the world’s social media superstars across multiple mediums such as YouTube, Facebook, Google, Twitter, and it covers almost all aspects of social entertainment, including music, TV, film, fashion, and sports.
To many’s surprise, Aerosmith did the opening set instead of the finale. They performed a total of three songs including “Crying“, “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing,” and “Walk This Way.” Since most of the awards winners weren’t present to accept the virtual trophies, guests sat through the two-hour long show laughing at funny videos and watching recorded winning speeches. At intervals, we were treated to live performances by Cee Lo Green, Eric Benet, and an amazing dance by Wreaking Crew Orchestra.

Last but no least, I finally saw the man of my dreams performing live for the first time! PSY certainly isn’t my prince charming but for some weird reason unknown even to myself, I actually had a dream about chasing after PSY for an autograph…Well, dreams often don’t make any sense, right? PSY performed “Gentleman” and the song that made him world-famous, “Gangnam Style,” before the show officially came to an end. Watch the video below to find out just how popular PSY is!
