    TEEN TOP and 100% performing Sorry Sorry!!

    6 + 7 = 13

    BTW, did Suju ever performed Sorry Sorry with 13 members? 

    • http://evacuatewithstyle.org/blog Amy

      SuJu’s never performed Sorry Sorry with Kibum, so no 13 member live performance exists.

    Totally agree about Miss A’s performance. I never thought their regular perfs lacked energy, but their choreography for IDNAM is sooooo dry and uninteresting and the girls are way better dancers than this set of choreography shows off, which just makes all their performances kinda blah. But the sped up remix and all the movement really added to the song’s dynamic.

    Here’s to hoping they get way better choreo for whenever they come back again in 2013…

      ‘Touch’ was so much cooler than ‘I don’t need a man’, both musically and dance wise.

    Minzy sounded great covering 1,2,3,4 and I wouldn’t have been opposed to her singing the whole song. Out of everyone in 2NE1 her lives are the most consistent and I find her voice to be the most appealing. 

    And SM, please let Amber sing more. Her alto could really change the entire dynamic of f(x)’s future work if they cut down the rapping and gave her more vocal lines.

    I love 2NE1 performed 1,2,3,4. It’s smooth, well-done singing and classy. The CL’s part itself was awesome. Idk why many people seems didn’t like it tho

    • imhigh

       because the truth is 2ne1 did not cover it as great  as some people including the publisher here claim they do.  1234  does not suit 2ne1′s style. if we’re talking karaoke wise, then yes 2ne1 did amazing.  for your knowledge, 1234 was especially produced for someone with a soulful voice who could bring out the retro feel and motown touch of the song. 2ne1 is a hiphop group that doesn’t require much substance in their singing. as long as they can rock the stage, their vocals are irrelevant. simply put,  because someone can sing and sound like the original…it doesn’t mean they’re better. like someone that sounds and sings like adele doesn’t mean she’s better than adele.

    I just don’t feel the love for Shinee’s sherlock performances honestly. But on a brighter note, INFINITE’s stage made me teary, it was the most beautiful thing seeing Sunggyu smile while his members sang 60 sec together. They sang 3 songs in the freezing cold and although it wasn’t broadcasted, they stayed outside 10 minutes after their performance talking to their fans and performing paradise for them since they waited in the cold for hours. I’m gushing, I know but I’m just proud okay? Their most flawless stage ever imo, it was magical and heartwarming.

      That’s very courteous and kind of Infinite. A good story to share.

    • kalemba

      What surprised me in Infinite’s performance is that audience sang ‘Without you’ along with Yadong.
      they didn’t release this song yet, so i thought it will be new for crowd.

      Inspirits are daebak!

    There’s so much amazing blue team performance but white team won. Popularity seems to be greater than quality.

  • Streby

    SHINee is really bringing their game this year, I don’t know how they manage to dance that dance and sing as well as they do. 

    • http://twitter.com/PlumAusten Plum Austen

      Yes :-)

      They are always so consistent and bring in their best efforts that I think their abilities are taken for granted. I also think they are capable of much more and their company should provide them with more challenging opportunities.

      • Streby

        I think they are provided with songs that are challenging enough, its just that their promotion is all over the place which is really preventing them from taking their fame to the next level. 

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/YQ53WK5K4DPXQ5DIBKDELB6WPE Camille

          THIS. Not to mention that there’s so much competition lately. SHINee’s definitely popular, and one of the most well-liked, but they’re not at the top yet. They’ve been at the cusp of it for a good couple of years. It’s past time they hit the big time, too, just like their SM sunbaes.

          • Streby

            They are sort of a niche, and the evil little hipster in me doesn’t want them to sell out and go all Super Junior with the lame repetitive hook songs. 

            But I do want them to claim the weird, ever-evolving, awesome performance niche which they are well on their way to if only they had a clean promotion schedule. 

            If they do hit big time (which I want), I want them to do it with real music that screams SHINee not some hand-me-down formulaic stiff. 

        • http://twitter.com/PlumAusten Plum Austen

          I did not think of that. Good observation.

    I enjoyed seeing Crazyno at this event.  

    In all the three year end events discussed here, I enjoyed the cross-group collaborations best of all. These may not always be performance perfect, but they show surprising and interesting sides to the artists. Now if only TVXQ and Big Bang could do a collaborative piece… :-)

      Crazyno attended?! I gotta watch it then.

        Yes.. he was in a mix of songs, but without his blond curls. Here’s the reference from the article above:

    2ne1′s cover of 1234 is just as bad as lee hi’s cover of i love you. people who say otherwise are delusional. it’s very obvious people!

      No they’re not delusional, they only have a different opinion. lol.

    I loved the switch between 2NE1 and Lee Hi.  I think 2NE1 did 1, 2, 3, 4 justice.  I liked how CL said 1,2,3, POW in the beginning.  And Bom’s voice, for me, killed it.  And their ILY was stronger than their performance in the SBS Gayo which was rather bland. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XMW5CNLNDR6NYJLNH3MXGBG5YM Kyla

    It seems I’m the only one who thinks shinee’s lives are not very good. It seems like they do more yelling than singing and it looks SO painful especially with jonghyun, he’s going to ruin his voice.

  • http://twitter.com/nippaul10 P▲ul

    Yeah! 2NE1 and Lee HI! I really loved their performance in here. It’s like the song fits them.

    I totally hate MBC for creating an outdoor stage. Are they out of their mind? Didn’t they think about how torturing it would be for not only the performers but also for the MCs and fans? The person who came out with this brainless idea should go and sit for 30 minutes in the coldness.

    As a huge Inspirit and Boice, I feel proud seeing how well my boys did. Sure, Infinite’s performance wasn’t the best. They can definitely do better if they didn’t have to deal with the extreme coldness. I hate lip synced performances but this is one of the very few situations I’ll forgive the performers for lip sync, other than SM’s Spectrum for SBS. Anyway, Infinite still killed it with their live singing as they always do and that’s very respectable. I salute every other outdoor groups that sang live too. CNBlue’s performance with Juniel and FT Island was also one of the best stages though it’s pre-recorded. But I still hate the fact that bands are not allowed to play their instruments live during music programs like this..

  • happy_slip

    After the rather disappointing that was SBS Gayo, I was so happy with what 2NE1 did for MBC. I miss CL rapping! I was also glad that Bom sounded good here (as well as pulling off UP live — I thought YG will forever make her avoid singing that song live)…damn just made me so so so happy because 2012 was more or less like a 2NE1 drought for a lot of blackjacks lol. Makes me think, Choice 37 and Lydia Paek really needs to do songs for 2NE1 too, hopefully they do that in the future. 

  • Angela

    JiHoon & Ailee’s performance! ♥

    Why not Block-B? It seems like everyone else was present…. (-:

  • lokifairy

    Ailee, Ji Hoon, f(SHINee) and SHINee were the highlight for me. Big Bang were also good. But I liked MBC more than KBS & SBS because MBC showed me many artists which I didn’t knew earlier. Secret & B.A.P performance was horrible…Zelo looked totaly awkward.

  • mmsss

    Infinite’s performance was definitely one of my favourites, just overall they’re the ones who stood out by managing to come up with something /actually/ interesting and original on each Gayo Daejun this year. Also I’m super proud of B1A4′s MBC Gayo Daejun performance, they pulled off something more creative than their SBS stage, which I wasn’t necessarily disappointed with but simply felt like it was lacking a bit, and also seemed more in their element  so I was happy to see them having a dynamic performance like this despite the cold. (also just really how strong and loud our BANA’s fanshouts are)

    SISTAR’s rock version of Alone was awesome! I want them to do a rock concept now. Ailee and Roh Jihoon were so cute, and I also really liked miss A’s performance. I don’t need a man sounds good sped up & Min’s dance solo was a nice touch.

    For me, SBS & MBC were way better than the first Gayo Daejun.
