On June 25th, MBLAQ’s G.O. sang a cover of Yang Soo Kyung’s ‘Love Is A Cold Temptation‘ on KBS2’s ‘Immortal Song 2‘ and received much praise for his impressive performance.
His choice of song was due to the week’s theme of “Top 10 Songs of 1992.” After singing the oldie, he received a positive response from both viewers and other idol contestants on the show–those of which included 2AM’s Changmin, 2PM’s Junsu, Sistar’s Hyorin, and F.T.Island’s Hongki. However, he placed 5th on the show among the other six idols.
During the filming, there were 200 audience members who cast their votes for the singers. While G.O. ranked in the bottom on the show, he was highly praised by netizens on the internet after the show was broadcast. In fact, in a certain internet survey, G.O. was recently voted as the “Best Idol” among netizens, so G.O. certainly shouldn’t feel any disappointment about his lower ranking.
A representative of ‘Immortal Song 2′ talked with Sports Chosun after the show and said, “G.O. chose an oldie from Min Hae Kyung for the second round and surprised the set even more with his vocal skills. Those results were reflected in his rankings. During the first round, it was G.O.’s first time being on the show. Also, his popularity in comparison with the other artists has nothing to do with the rankings. The response from the audience on site can be less than expected at times… However, seeing that the TV audience were immersed in his performance, it seems as if viewers have fallen in love with G.O.’s charms.”
What do you think of his last performance?
Are you looking forward to his future performances?
