The ‘2012 KBS Music Festival‘ suffered from numerous audio problems to the frustration of many viewers. However, one positive from the audio issues was that it managed to separate the actual kings and queens of live K-pop.
Many idol groups came onto stage to put on brilliant performances. However, most of them could not keep up with their vocals. The only ones who showed off they could excel at singing live were 2AM, K.Will, Hyorin, Ailee, SHINee, Noel, and TVXQ.
As well-known vocalists, 2AM, K.Will, Hyorin, Ailee, and Noel were able to overcome the difficulties of issues with the sound system to belt out their notes while SHINee and TVXQ were able to pull off an incredible performance even with the addition of complicated choreography.

The KBS K-pop Festival’s honest sound system has exposed the vocal talents of K-pop idols.
KBS 2TV’s ‘K-pop Festival’ was aired on the 28th of December and was graced by singers who shined in 2012. They sang their biggest hit of 2012 and also got together for collaboration performances that exuded a completely different charm than usual.
However, aside from the dance numbers, the performances of the attending idol singers fell below expectations and were disappointing. As the entire concert was performed live, their embarrassing vocal talent, or lack thereof, was exposed. The sound of singers struggling to catch their breath could be heard through the microphones, and there were some idols who couldn’t sing at all because they were out of breath. There were also idols who lip-synced and relied on the AR of their songs, making the entire ordeal awkward for those who were watching.
The only people who survived the exposure were 2AM, K. Will, Hyorin, Ailee, SHINee, Noeul and TVXQ. Hyorin showcased her vocal talent through a sexy performance, as well as during her collaboration number of the guitarist Park Joo Won. SHINee and TVXQ gave perfect performances as they sang so well to extremely difficult choreography that it made one wonder if they were actually singing live or lip-synching.
Meanwhile, netizens left comments on various online community sites as they were watching the performances. Most of the netizens picked up on KBS’ sound system and the singers’ vocal talent. They left comments such as, “KBS’ K-Pop Festival’s sound system has no mercy. A forced MR removal”, “The singers vocal talents are exposed. It’s embarrassing to listen to”, “This shows who has talent and who doesn’t”, “It must be embarrassing for the singers. How will they perform live”, “I can hear their voices so well. I can easily tell who can’t sing”, “Is today a MR removal special?” and “Forced live performances.”
