The Wonder Girls will appear on the hit reality show “So You Think You Can Dance” Dec. 9 as guests, according to the girl group’s agency JYP Entertainment.
The five-member band, which became the first Korean singers to enter the Billboard Hot 100 in October, will sing their hit number “Nobody,” along with Kris Allen, the season eight American Idol winner. Allen will perform his newest single “Live Like We’re Dying.”
“We believe that the opportunity was scheduled because the girls made it on the Billboard charts and also because of their appearance as the opening act of the Jonas Brothers. We hope the girls will be appearing in other famous shows as well,” the band’s agency said.
The girls were introduced as a “pop sensation” on the program’s Web site, adding that they “are the striking chord with a young U.S. audience.”
“So You Think You Can Dance” is aired on Fox and has become one of the most popular television shows in the U.S. Contestants are chosen through auditions, ranging from street to professional dancers. The final 20 make it to the program, and from there, the dancers are assigned different dance styles and partners each week.
There are currently spin-offs in a number of countries, including New Zealand, Ukraine, Turkey, Canada, Germany and Norway.
The Wonder Girls has been active in the U.S. with their catchy song “Nobody,” attracting both young and old fans with their cute and easy-to-follow dance moves and lyrics.
The band’s number ranked 76th on the October Billboard Hot 100, which was written by its producer JYP, also known as Park Jin-young. The group signed a management contract with the Jonas Group and Hollywood’s Creative Artists Agency (CAA) as the band’s agency in the U.S. (Korea Times)
