Well, I wasn’t there, so I don’t know how accurate this take on the performance was, but apparently Jon Caramanica of the New York Times was less than impressed with 2NE1‘s performance Friday night. You can read the whole article here, but let me give you the quick overview.
While the performance was over the top, he felt it wasn’t polished and lagged in many places. His descriptions for the members went along the lines of this: CL was the “spark plug”, Dara was “coy”, Bom seemed confused the entire night, and Minzy was the “anchor”. Of course, this comes after fans learned that Bom was apparently sick that night, but how could he have known that?
As I said, I wasn’t there for the performance, so I don’t know how accurate this is, but after looking over a few of his other articles and the artists he tends to prefer (mostly male rappers with a side of Nicki Minaj), I think the NY Times could have made a better choice in who to send to review the extremely over-the-top girls of 2NE1.
Did you attend the performance? What did you think of it?
