Watch: ATEEZ Blows Kim Jong Kook And “Immortal Songs” Away With Epic Performance Of Turbo’s “Black Cat”
On August 29, KBS’s “Immortal Songs” continued the second part of their Turbo/Kim Jong Kook special.
Last week, Jo Kwon, ASTRO’s MJ, and Shin Joo Hyub won the first part of the special with their performance of “Twist King.” The three singers performed with the dancers from “Jamie,” the musical in which they are currently starring.
Performing this week were MONNI, Yook Joong Wan Band, Lim Jeong Hee, Car, the Garden, and ATEEZ.
The episode opened with Kim Jong Kook and Kim Jung Nam performing Turbo’s “Love Is… (3+3=0)” and “Twist King.”
First to perform were Car, the Garden and MONNI. Car, the Garden covered Turbo’s “Jazz Bar,” while MONNI covered Kim Jong Kook’s “Standstill,” and Car, the Garden took the win for the round.
Yook Joong Wan Band performed next with Turbo’s “Goodbye Yesterday” and won their round against Car, the Garden.
ATEEZ performed fourth on the episode. The group shared that they were nervous but excited and added that they had been influenced by Kim Jong Kook’s “Lovable” when they were younger to become singers. The song they chose to perform was Turbo’s hit “Black Cat,” which the group re-interpreted with their trademark powerful choreography.
Kim Jong Kook commented, “I was shocked when I saw the rearrangement. It’s impressive.” LAPOEM said, “We felt in our bones that this is what dancing is. They were able to sing perfectly even in the middle of such powerful dancing.” B.O.Y’s Kim Kook Heon said, “This is the only team in Korea that could pull off a performance like this.”
At the end, ATEEZ won the votes from the panel to beat Yook Joong Wan Band, their first win on the show. The last performer was Lim Jeong Hee, who sang Turbo’s “December,” but did not take the win over ATEEZ, meaning that ATEEZ took the final win on the episode.
