Immortal Song 2 is a very interesting show. I don’t tune in every week, but when I do, it’s almost always a treat and song-fest for me. I always sit in awe and enjoyment watching the singers deliver singing performances with so much intensity and emotion. There are times when I’d sink in dilemma, whereby I’d clap so hard for one, and root so hard for another. There are times when I’d just watch them go all out and tears would just start streaming down my cheeks. There are even times when I’d just have no words.
The concept isn’t new, with idol singers/members from idol groups pitting against each other with their (surprisingly) strong and solid vocals for a winning victory in the end. But what’s so alluring and meaningful about this show is that not only does it pay tribute to those legendary and old-time singers featured, it also opens our eyes to a mass of talented and solid idol singers who’re mostly either buried unnoticed in their individual groups or those who’re so underrated (or not so good looking) that they just go unnoticed all the time. It gives us an insight into their heart, enthusiasm and passion they have for singing and music. And most importantly, their growth and progress in becoming real singers, singers of their own worth.
And thanks to this show, I’ve discovered a bunch of really good and talented youngsters who come from extremely popular idol singing groups, but whom I’d never paid attention to before the show. People rant about how K-pop is so overrated and how those singers can’t sing to save their lives..etc. I used to be one of them.
But perhaps not so much anymore now?
1. Yang Yoseob (BEAST)
2. Yesung (Super Junior)
3. Hyorin (SISTAR)
4. Junsu (2PM)
5. G.O (MBLAQ)
Those were some of my fav performances in the show, delivered with utmost endeavor and passion. The heart-gripping emotions, the heartfelt delivery. No wonder the audiences just sat quietly and stared in awe, with tears filling their eyes. I can only wonder in amazement, how on earth do they do it?
So just when I thought singing was the only forte they could count on to win my heart, I stumbled across videos of MBLAQ‘s leader Yang Seungho playing the piano. And holy gracious goodness, I was stunned, dumbfounded and awestruck. Waddaheck did he just do there?!@#@$#@$@
Jay Chou, you’ve found your competitor here!
And I read that he can do everything from singing, rapping, dancing, guitar to sports and other random stuff as well? o_0
Right, I’m so not gonna judge any singing idol group anymore. NOT until I find out what they’re good at.
*still mind boggled by the piano renditions*
