Review: MAMA 2009

I definitely enjoyed that whole show, but it would've been better if SM Entertainment was there and of course our Leadja can feel the void without them. But you can't deny that all performances were great.Congratulations to the winner! whatever people will say you all deserve it because you put blood and sweat to make it on stage. Respect and Love.

1st Wave- Drunken Tiger "Monster"
Love his intro, Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody turned into Black Eyed Peas' Hey Mama.. Very Mama huh? lol. Great performance to start off the show. I'm not really a big fan of him but I respect him from what he's doing.He's the best rapper I've seen in Korea

2nd Wave- Brown Eyed Girls "Sign", KARA "Honey", Abracadabra/Mister Remix
Love the orchestra version. Though I'm more of an Abracadabra fan than Sign.. this performance made me appreciate the song. Somehow I feel like I'm just watching them on a regular music show. But they pulled me back in awe when they perform with KARA

I think KARA will throw their cutesy image for good.They made "Honey" look fierce. And I admit it I'm Nicole biased.. she so looks good here!
Love this collab!... They look fab and fierce!.. This two dance moves have been so popular this year, you wouldn't even able to count how many parodies and covers were done for this two great songs (excluding SNSD's "Genie" of course.. really sad that they didn't show up)

3rd Wave- Seo In Gook/ Baek Ji Young "Don't Forget", Seo In Good "Boom Boom Pow", Seo In Gook/ MFM Church Choir
Baek Ji Young made me fall for her beautiful voice.. Totally in love with the song.. it gives me teary eye. I don't know if it was scripted where he called Baek Ji Young to sing it.. very pro if not. I love Baek Ji Young now! sorry for mistaking you in "ear candy".

This Superstar K champion got some groove in him. lol. But it's kinda awkward dancing after singing super stardom and before performing with the MFM Church Choir.. but he still rocked it...and the lady with him too(whom I don't know).
And of course you can feel the church feeling in this performance. I like it when there's more people on stage than just performing by himself. This is definitely his time to shine bright.

4th Wave- 2NE1's 21street Musical Special (I Don't Care, Kiss, You and I, Please Don't Go)
And yea I'm always YG biased.. because I love them! YG always prepares a good stage for us. Love the musical theme, it suits the song I don't care because they don't only focus on dance steps but also with their comical expressions (CL and Dara are always in charge of this) First time seeing Dara perform Kiss and the fierce look really fits her, she can prove us that she's not just a cutesy image. And the guy from the style.. why o why didn't I notice you before? He's smexy! Bom's You and I.. good thing she didn't dance that much because whenever she adds dancing her voice lacks and last night didn't! Great Job Bommie! And the two maknaes! finally! It's about time! because they're still young, their solo single can be set aside for next year right? so CL and Minzy fans don't fret. And I expect them to have a great performance in their new single "Please Don't Go".. because they always bring it! Could it be their young spirit? kekeke.. Congrats on winning Newcomer Award, Best MV and Song of the Year..well deserved!

5th Wave- GirlsXGirls "Free to the Woman"
Rapper from different girl groups. Miryo from Brown Eyed Girls, Hyuna and Jiyoon from 4Minute, Baby J from Jewerly and I save the best for last.. Tasha! I'm totally naive of Tasha but I know she's the best rapper from every rapper in Korea just like her true romance Drunken Tiger ^^.. This two lovers makes me wanna listen to rap music more. I'll start listening to their songs from now on. They performed their own version of Lip Gloss and May Day.

6th Wave- Ivy/ Nichkhun of 2PM, 2PM's Heartbeat and Again&Again
I guess to others they will like this performance.. but I don't.sorry. She did great, but I don't really like too sexy image.. especially in awards where their will be different age groups will be there.I know I'm narrow-minded. But that's just me. No one will beat Hyori and TOP's kiss scene last year. that's all my say.

Great Performance is always expected with 2PM.. everyone knows that they always bring their A-game wherever they perform.. but this time they performed without their leadja Jaebum.. which make people anticipate them more. and you know what I always think that they don't think that Jaebum is not part of their group anymore.. because if they do, they wouldn't perform Again and Again..again (lol) And we can still say that Jaebum is in the full album because the old songs are included and all. I don't know, that's just my opinion. Congrats on winning Artist of the year they really showed us how great they are and what they can offer to us.. a lot of guy groups debuted and old ones that didn't wowed me like 2PM did. And I really cried when Chansung made his speech.. Jaebum please come back T_T

7th Wave- G-Dragon's "Heartbreaker, Taeyang's "Where U At" & "Wedding Dress", G-dragon/Taeyang's "Korean Dream"
I expect something new from G-dragon last night and he didn't fail me. I think he got tired people copying him with his blonde hair and decided to have this jimmy neutron upgraded hairstyle that no one can copy. I love his extravagant stage of course, people might think he's weird.. but that separate him from others because he's not afraid to step out of the box. With all the plagiarism issue, he ignores it and perform a rock version of Heartbreaker... and oh! Love the hundreds GD clone! you're the man G-Dragon!

Taeyang is the total opposite of G-dragon. G-Dragon performed with hundreds of his clone while Taeyang performed Where U At by himself. He's a simple guy which balances them. If he turned out like G-Dragon then I wouldn't like Big Bang. He also performed Wedding Dress which he currently promoting.

And finally! GDYB moment!.. though they're both different in many areas they are still best friends. and I don't think anyone will separate them. they performed Korean Dream and I personally love the song from G-Dragon's solo album. Taeyang is in charge of the dancing and G-dragon is in charge of getting the crowd hype.
