Teen Top cannot sing and dance at the same time
If Niel and Chunji are Teen Top's best singers, then the rest of them must really suck.
Right off the bat Niel sounds out of tune. Before there's even anything to hinder his singing performance. No one else even sings until about two minutes in and he sounds terrible, whoever he is. The next guy misses his cue and can't even manage to sound like a decent singer. At least Niel manages to put a tiny bit of vibrato at the end of some of his notes that seem to dip in and out of being in tune.
The first rapper's voice mixed in with the backing track. The second rapper with red hair (I need to learn their names so I can criticize them properly) sounded... horrible. It almost sounded like he was trying to sound like G-Dragon.
Some of the choreography is kind of difficult and I understand that it can take a toll on their voices but they shouldn't sound this bad. They should either do a song with impressive vocals and weaker choreography or pick a song that they can sing easily and pair it with strong choreography. Their voices are bouncing with their bodies and it does not sound good. Like trying to sing while driving down a bumpy road.
They're throwing all of the pressure to sing well onto two members who have to do the dance and sing at the same time but they cannot seem to balance it. I kind of feel sorry for Niel having to sing that much. You have more members, train them to sing and use them.
Also, shouldn't the most attractive member be in the middle of the dance formation more often? Is that not some kind of K-pop rule? All I see is Niel with his blobfish face and Chunji with his stupid fucking winks and smiles that make me want to punch him in the face. He reminds me of... a moron.
Just gonna predict a couple of comments.
"They're young, they'll get better!"
If they're this terrible they should not have debuted yet. They should have trained until they could handle singing and dancing at the same time.
"You can't judge based on just one performance!"
Yes I can, shut up. This performance just sucked. Hard. The only other song I've heard any of them perform was a ballad from Chunji that sounded rather nice. He will make a fine solo artist when he's all grown up.
"lawl it's k-pop every group is like this get over it"
Just... don't even bother posting comments like that. If there weren't groups that sucked like this we wouldn't have much to write about.
Also I just happened to look on the video at a comment.
"chunji is so cute! He keeps winking. And he sounds a lot like KEY!"
...Teen Top fans are really young, aren't they?
