It wasn't the first time for the SB19 boys—Justin, Sejun, Ken, Josh, and Stell—to take the ASAP stage, but it was their first time to perform two songs for the show. On iWant ASAP, the five-member boy group did without their synchronized dancing and focused on their power vocals with the heartbreaking ballad "Tilaluha." (FYI, "Tilaluha" is SB19's debut single.)
During their quick chat with hosts Donny Pangilinan and Edward Barber, Josh spoke about their newfound fame and quickly assured their fans that they'll still continue to work hard no matter what: "Hindi pa rin po nagsi-sink in lahat. Pero thankful po kami sa lahat ng attention na nakukuha ng group namin for now. Pero ganun pa rin po yung mindset namin, it's still the same na nagpa-practice po kami ng very, very hard every day." Fun fact: SB19 practiced the choreography of their second single "Go Up" 1,000 TIMES before releasing the song.
SB19's dance skills were put on the spot when they were tasked to play a random K-pop dance challenge. Needless to say, they totally aced the choreos of BTS' "Idol," Jennie's "Solo," Wonder Girls' "Nobody," and more!
But the *HIGHLIGHT* of their ASAP stint was their cover of the James Reid original song "Huwag Ka Nang Humirit"! The boys have performed this cover several times in the past, but it's still as ~refreshing~ as ever. On the ASAP Natin 'To main stage, SB19 added their signature ~dance skills~ to the song which made the song stand out more than ever!
Be amazed in three, two, one…
For a major #throwback, here's James' 2015 ASAP performance of the same song:
