K-pop artists with attention-grabbing performances at big events in America
These K-pop artists make fans proud and impress the public with their stages in America.
Entering the American music market is the ambition of many Korean artists, especially K-pop idols. Recently, K-pop artists have continued to appear at major music festivals and shows in the US. Delivering impressive performances, these idols never fail to make fans proud. Some outstanding names include BTS, BLACKPINK, NCT 127, CL or most recently aespa.
BLACKPINK is undoubtedly the most successful K-pop girl group in the American music market today. The group often performs on famous American talk shows such as The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,… In 2019, 4 members of BLACKPINK had an explosive performance at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
BLACKPINK made history by becoming the first female K-pop act to perform at Coachella. Bringing the smash hits DDU-DU DDU-DU, Kill This Love together with their top-notch charisma and gorgeous visuals, the YG girls delivered a legendary stage.
BTS is always a sought-after name at American music events. With their top global popularity and impact, BTS regularly joins the line-up of major award ceremonies and music festivals such as Billboard Music Awards, Grammy, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,…
Recently, the group had an energetic performance at the American Music Awards 2021 with 2 songs “Butter” and “My Universe” (ft.Coldplay). BTS also excellently won Artist Of The Year. In the near future, BTS will continue to write history as the first K-pop act to perform at America’s largest winter music festival – Jingle Bell Tour.
SM’s rookie girl group is the first Kpop female group to perform at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. This is also the group’s first overseas schedule after their debut a year ago. However, aespa’s first performance in America is considered underwhelming by many netizens. Specifically, aespa showed up in “recycled” outfits instead of something new, giving off the feels that they were just performing at a weekly music show.
Performing the hit “Savage” in the middle of a crowded parade, aespa members showed the lack in stage presence, not on par with their seniors.
Before aespa, NCT 127 also performed at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2019. The members flaunted handsome visuals and stirred up the atmosphere when performing the hit “Highway To Heaven” with stable vocals and eye-catching choreography.
In early November, CL made fans proud when performing at the Head In The Clouds festival, one of the biggest music events in Los Angeles. The event brought together a lineup of top stars from many countries to perform. Appearing on the big stage, CL exuded confidence and charm, capturing the hearts of thousands of fans.
Thanks to these amazing performances at America’s biggest events, not only do these K-pop idols make fans proud, they also bring K-pop music closer to the Western audience.
