A total of 13 songs were performed throughout the show that started at 8 PM, including Jack Garratt's "Weathered" that Ruel performed at triple J's Like A Version segment, making him the youngest ever act to perform there. 

"This is one of the songs that started my journey," Ruel said before an audience that was dominated with young teens.

Aside from his hit singles such as "Dazed & Confused", "Not Thinkin' Bout You", and "Say",Ruel also took the opportunity to perform three unreleased songs which were "Real Thing", "Unsaid", and "Pain Killer".

The Weeknd's "Call Out Your Name" and John Legend's "Who Did That to You" were amongst the song in Ruel's 13-song setlist last night.

Ruel closed the show with two of his Gold-certified singles, "Don't Tell Me" and "Younger". "Thank you so much, I promise to come back here soon," Ruel said.
