Best of Weekly Music Shows: 4/22 – 4/28
Another week, another recap! This week saw comebacks from the likes of SHINee, Lyn, uBeat, 4minute, and Juniel, and a debut from Loen‘s newest group, History. Mnet M! Countdown also aired their Nihao Taiwan special, bringing back some songs from years before. Below are my favorites of the week, but don’t forget to comment with your own!
C-Clown‘s “Shaking Heart,” MBC Music Show Champion, April 24, 2013
This is probably my favorite song from the group yet, and they nail the song live, vocally. It’s also a visually pleasing performances, with most clean movements and suits.
Jay Park‘s “JOAH,” MBC Music Show Champion, April 24, 2013
I’m still jamming out to this song. And as usual, Jay Park’s got this in the bag in terms of performance.
Lyn’s “Breaking Heart” featuring VIXX‘s Ravi, KBS Music Bank, April 26, 2013
Lyn is such a fantastic singer. Her voice doesn’t even need those backup dancers, especially since most of the focus is on her singing anyways.
Geeks‘ “How Are You” with DJ Dopsh, KBS Music Bank, April 26, 2013
The song is fun. The stage is fun. Lil Boi seems to jam out more than Louie, really making the most of the stage.
History’s “Dreamer” featuring IU, SBS Inkigayo, April 28, 2013
Jang Yi-jeong is just lighting up this stage with his expressions. And Na Do-kyun sounds unreal live. The rookie group is off to a strong start, already having loud fanchants. IU’s appearance to do her narration was certainly a booster, giving Kim Si-hyoung someone to actually speak to in real life.
SHINee’s “Why So Serious,” SBS Inkigayo, April 28, 2013
SHINee’s comeback has left some wanting more from their title track while others are utterly tickled pink. Regardless, SHINee definitely knows how to bring it to their performances, even sans Jonghyun. Taemin in particular seems to be attempting to work it for two, perhaps because he’s taken on most of Jonghyun’s lines. While this Inkigayo stage is most likely lip-synced, it shows off their choreography more, while their KBS Music Bank stage definitely showed that their vocals aren’t behind. And just how good do they all look? Especially Onew.
