On August 28, BLACKPINK made history at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards. There, the group won the “Best Metaverse Performance” award, and Lisa won the “Best K-Pop” award.
The group also shut down the internet when they played their pre-single “Pink Venom” live. Social media was buzzing about the group’s performance because of how good their singing was.
But it looks like the American news outlet Variety wasn’t impressed and magazine published an article that talked about the best and worst parts of the award show.
The article said that BLACKPINK was lip-syncing, and it said that it was one of the worst parts of the night.
On that day, a post about BLACKPINK began trending on Instiz‘s community board under the title, “Even now, there are articles about BLACKPINK lip-syncing in other countries“.
The netizen who posted wrote, “They could have done just as well if they had performed live, so why do they insist on lip-syncing?“.
Other netizens quickly responded with comments such as:
ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I can’t help but laugh.
Huh? It was totally live though….?? You could even hear them touching their mics.
It was straight up live?
Jennie was criticized for getting her lyrics wrong, and now they don’t like them because they lip sync ㅠ.
They did perform live though? Shouldn’t Variety apologize….? They even called them ‘repeat offender’…
Isn’t Variety quite a reputed outlet? I don’t know who to believe…
Why is Variety putting out articles saying they lip-synced when it was clear it was live??????
No but anyone could tell it was live..
It was live.
