The 2013 F1 event started off with a big bang last Friday night, but it was not just the sounds of the race cars that got people excited.
Korean male group BigBang took to the stage as thousands of fans thronged the Padang, all armed with the band's official yellow light stick.
Consisting of members T.O.P, G-Dragon, Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri, the fashionable and slick guys immediately got the fans jumping and screaming with their hits Tonight and Hands Up, before getting everyone to sing along to their infectiously catchy Fantastic Baby.
Diehard fans told Life! that the band looked "really relaxed" that night, as its members had "more casual interaction" with one another.
Leader G-Dragon seemed to be happily "serving" the band, as he wiped off the sweat off of Seungri's face at one point, and then poured a bottle of cold water all over a very sweaty Daesung later on.
One of the highlights of the night? When Taeyang got everyone laughing as he launched into a fun beatbox segment about eating "chilli crab and pepper crab at Nando's". Never mind that it hardly made any sense.
