10 Times (G)I-DLE Blew Our Minds With Their Overflowing Talent
Meet (G)I-DLE, the group who dropped their rookie tag by the time they released their very first comeback single. For the past 17 months, Miyeon, Minnie, Soojin, Soyeon, Yuqi, and Shuhua greeted us with amazing music that had fans mesmerized on more than one occasion. Furthermore, they completely bewitched with their overflowing talent in terms of vocals, dance, and rap that shined through during both live performances and covers.
Being one of the few self-produced girl groups, these hardworking ladies definitely have what it takes to stay in the game. To explore their musical journey in depth, here are 10 times (G)I-DLE delivered buzz-worthy moments of their prosperous career.
1. Their amazing cover of BTS’s “Fake Love”
BTS is known for their hardcore dance routines, and (G)I-DLE paid them homage with their brief but lively cover of “Fake Love.” The line distribution, rearranged choreography, and fiery rap showed that these talented ladies are full of potential and are ready to dominate the K-pop scene.
2. Their sharp choreography for “Hann”
Elegance, harmony, and sass crown “Hann,” a single that left fans with jaws dropped more than once. What makes the performance below even more impactful is the fact that (G)I-DLE flawlessly delivered their choreography in high heels. Props to that!
3. Their goosebump-worthy stage at the 2018 MAMA Premiere in Korea
You know a rookie group is promising when they get invited to perform at a major award show. Just like their flamboyant stage shows, the ladies impressed with their thrilling intro and snatched wigs and hearts with their incredible performance overall.
4. Their Arabian-inspired performance at the 2018 Melon Music Awards
Following in the footsteps of their first two MVs for “LATATA” and “Hann (Alone)” respectively, the sextet featured once again an Arabian theme during their live stage, with mainly Egyptian-inspired scenery on set.
5. Their production skills that shined through “I Made”
Just like the name of the girls’ second EP suggests, each member contributed to the making of its music. While Soyeon is credited for most of (G)I-DLE’s discography, the other members are joining her more and more to make a name for themselves as a self-produced group (which is a rare thing amongst girl groups). Listen to “Señorita” down below, which served as the title track for “I Made.”
6. Their rendition of “All That Jazz” at KCON NY
Just when we think we’ve seen it all, the sextet comes and sweeps us right off our feet. Choosing jazz as a concept for their cover, (G)I-DLE blew the audience away with their sultry and vibrant take on “All That Jazz,” a song from the 1975 musical “Chicago.” They ended up delivering the performance of a lifetime thanks to their powerful vocals and breathtaking dance moves.
7. Their “Uh-Oh” MV shoot in New York
It looks like (G)I-DLE are no strangers to the Big Apple anymore, as they’ve come back once again. This time, they graced us with a groovy version of “Uh-Oh” in the streets of New York. On top of the ’90s vibes that accompany the song, the girls made sure to flaunt their swagger throughout every take. See the video for yourself!
8. Their “LATATA” remix on “Queendom”
It only takes one listen to the newest version of “LATATA” to know that (G)I-DLE has what it takes to ascend the musical throne on “Queendom.” From Minnie’s verse in Thai to the dance break, you know that whatever the group brings, you will always enjoy it to the fullest!
9. Their badass take on 2NE1’s “Fire”
Yes, this is the second entry for a (G)I-DLE performance on “Queendom,” and it is well-deserved. The girls brought talent, innovation, and nostalgia to the table with their fierce cover of 2NE1’s debut track, leaving both the contestants and the crowd in absolute awe.
10. Their first-ever performance on “Immortal Songs”
Bold and sensual, (G)I-DLE gave a performance to remember with their cover of Koyote’s “Sad Dream.” The panelists and audience alike were left speechless by the stellar reprise as well as the sexy spin that the group put on the choreography.
