The F9Star also praised them for their talent and their willingness to spread positive energy among their fans. “Not only is the choreography, the development of personalities, the whole entertainment they put on spectacular, young people are listening to their music and they’re sending a good message through their music,” Cena explained. “I think that’s really cool, when you have popularity and you choose to use your voice for something good. I think that’s a plus.”
