This year, the F1 rocks concert was a star attraction.

BEYONCE, BLACK EYED PEAS, JACKY CHEUNG, NO DOUBT & LINDSAY LOHAN... what else could you ask for?

Although I didn’t have the fortune to attend this concert due to er..budget constraints, I caught it on television yesterday night.

The concert was so awesome you could hardly tell it was Fort Canning. The open area was packed with a sea of jumping, screaming people. The live performances of Beyonce and No Doubt was so energetic I jumped off my sofa involuntarily. (it’s true!)

So imagine how much more amazing it would be if next year’s Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games and F1 combine forces to stage a concert to celebrate the two mega events?

Just last night, Teo Ser Luck, Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Community Development, Youth & Sports Ministry, said: “Maybe we can have a bridging event between the two. If you look at F1 Rocks as a potential event, we could possibly use it and scale it up to become a very big party to link the two. A big party as a closure for YOG and a party that starts the F1 season in Singapore.”

If it were true, 2010 will be certainly an exciting, adrenaline pumping year for Singapore.

Let’s just say, YOG rocks too.
