2NE1 – Crush Live

Welcome to our show. We’re 2NE1 and TONIGHT its All or Nothing, baby. Are you ready!”

Many reviews of 2NE1’s new album Crush referred to it as a return to their signature sound and with this live performance I have to agree. To say their signature sound, sure it exists…its definitive, but this team is so much more than just a sound. 2NE1 is a brand, their sound is accompanying with a specific striking visual, dance style, and a ton of swag. I love their costumes in this video. I don’t know what to call them…but their gold, black, and I love it. Simple as that. The backup dancers are wearing hot pink which I have associated with 2NE1 since 2010’s Can’t Nobody. The stage background is totally 2NE1 from day one. The graffiti is so reminiscent Fire and Clap!.

This is everything. Dara is back with crazy hair. Beom still can’t move her face much (I like it like that) and Minzi looks to be all grown up and is still in a ridiculously long coat.

Check out this performance cause they killed it. Isn’t that why we love them? Lets ask…

They love me cause I’m hot, they love me cause I’m cold. They love me cause I’m real. They love me cause…

I’m slayed.

Feel the base go, feel feel feel the base go.

I have been waiting all week to watch 2NE1’s comeback video’s Come Back Home and Happy and write my reaction posts to them, but when I went to watch those videos for the first time the first video that came up was CL’s solo live performance of Mental Breakdown which if you read my album review (http://sifuhallyu.com/2014/02/28/2ne1-crush-album-review/) you know that MTBD was my favorite track on the album. That beat, CL’s flow, its the perfect sound. This is now the performance and track I’m going to be showing people why I’m a 2NE1 fan. Hands down, this is Lee Chae Rin’s best performance ever eclipsing the 2011 MNet Asian Music Awards performance of Lonely and I am the Best (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAHD0aFt45A) their live comeback stage of I Love You (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcgFPrlNsvQ). These were two performances where CL stood out and owned the stage. Queen of Kpop, Lee Hyo Ri, once said that CL is the only person who could one day take her spot as the top female solo act and these performances and now with her live solo in MTBD this has never been more correct.

CL once again, once the stage. This time however, she does it alone with no help from her sisters and does she ever work. I love the stage itself. It’s dark and has all of CL’s signature iconography…the flags, the kwon twins, and that ridiculous outfit. I laughed out loud when I first saw her in her Gizibie outfit and then she opened her mouth and mine was shut. Girl…can…work.

If I ever get the chance to see 2NE1 perform live you will see me on YouTube in the front row rocking out.
