Watch: ATEEZ Gets Standing Ovation From Rain With Their Performance On “Immortal Songs”
The episode opened with a powerful performance from Rain himself and Ciipher, the boy group he produced, of his viral hit “GANG.”
The first performer to compete was Kim Young Heum, who put his own spin on “Instead of Saying Goodbye.” Jo Kwon went next with “Bad Guy” and set up his performance like a whole musical number, winning the round against Kim Young Heum. Performing third was N.Flying’s Yoo Hwe Seung, who sang “How to Avoid the Sun.” At the end, Rain stood up to applaud his performance, but Jo Kwon ended up winning this round as well. Performing fourth was Changmin with “Rainism,” which he reinterpreted with a band and a funky vibe. As a result, he was able to defeat Jo Kwon and win the round. Next to perform was Jamie, who sang “Love Song” and showed her emotional range, but was unable to win against Changmin.
Going last this episode was ATEEZ, who chose the song “It’s Raining” and impressed the audience with a performance that lived up to their title as “performance masters.” Asked about the key point of Rain’s original performance, ATEEZ talked about Rain’s amazing physique and his sexy breathing during the song. The group also hyped up their performance by asking, “Is the stage sturdy? Because we’re going to smash our performance” and “Instead of ‘it’s raining,’ it’s going to be ‘ATEEZ-ing’ from now on.”
ATEEZ also shared a preview of their powerful moves while dancing to some of Rain’s songs before their performance.
After their electric performance, Rain and the entire panel rose to give the group a standing ovation. MC Kim Tae Woo said, “There are no cracks in ATEEZ. Their dancing, singing, expressions, and gestures are all perfect.” Rain said in admiration, “I think that ATEEZ are the superstars of the next generation superstars.”
The panelists voted ATEEZ the final winner of the episode, marking the second time that the group has taken the final win on “Immortal Songs.” The group previously also won a round on the “King of Kings” special of the show.
