Why does TWICE get praised for their raw vocals when singing casually, but draw controversy over live stages?

A compilation video of TWICE members singing casually has garnered much attention. 

TWICE‘s vocals have always been a controversial topic. Since their debut, TWICE has come under criticism many times for disappointing live singing skills, especially during their encore winning stages. Anti fans claim TWICE should improve their singing by taking vocal lessons to prove they are worthy of being titled a top Kpop group.

Recently, a video of TWICE’s vocals caught the attention of ONCEs.  Fans made a compilation of the off-stage moments where TWICE members sing casually. In the video, TWICE shows off their mellow, sweet and emotional voice. The girls sound much better in these spontaneous singing moments than in their encore stages.

Although there is no background music, the main vocalists of TWICE such as Nayeon, Jihyo, Jeongyeon… still manage to flaunt their vocal techniques. Meanwhile, sub-vocalists like Mina and Momo also sound relatively stable.

Fans praise TWICE for their harmonious vocals, not too powerful, but suit the group’s energetic and vibrant music well. Besides, fans criticize JYP for often giving TWICE high-pitched songs that exceed the group’s vocal range. This explains why TWICE normally sings well, but when they go on stage, having to sing and dance at the same time easily causes the members to lose their breath. There are even many stages where TWICE was forced to lip-sync to ensure sound quality.
