TWICE has been embroiled in a controversy over their shocking performance.
On June 10, the latest episode of MBC’s Show! Champion was broadcast. In this episode, IU, Baekhyun, MONSTA X, TXT, and TWICE were nominated for the first place, and eventually, TWICE won the trophy.
Jihyo said, “’Show! Champion,’ thank you for giving us our first No.1. Most of all, thank you ONCE for cheering us even when we can’t meet you in person.” Soon, TWICE had an encore stage.
Viewers who watched the encore performance were shocked. The video drew much attention in various online communities, drawing two opposite reactions.
Some criticized and showed their shock:
“That was absolutely terrible.”
“It’s really shocking.”
“Even I’m embarrassed from watching it.”
“I know TWICE isn’t known for their vocals, but this…”
“Are they sick?”
“I’m not trying to be rude, but are they tone deaf?”
However, some expressed different opinions:
“TWICE’s songs are all really high even though no members can sing in that range.”
“You guys do know that it’s an encore stage.”
“I hope JYP let them sing in their own voices.”
