2NE1 brought the awesomeness to Inkigayo tonight with their first live performance of their new single “I Love You”.
Papa YG is a total diva and stops his major artists from promoting too heavily on music programs. That’s bad for the super stans, who don’t get to see their faves perform fifty million times per week, but the upside is that the few live performances they do have are usually extravagant and high in quality, and you can’t get more extravagant than 2NE1′s “I Love You” comeback stage.
CL walked out with a screeching parrot on her shoulder, and then the group performed with live swans swimming in ponds on the stage.
But all this marvelous animal cruelty aside, the best thing was that I could actually hear all of the girls singing. Last era, their backing track drowned out all their voices, but this time around, CL and her three assistants came through loud and clear.
Of course, as with all 2NE1 performances, the choreography wasn’t particularly difficult or impressive, but the group always makes up for it with their ‘swag’ and repeated hair flips.
