Today, we’re going to discuss some the performances that were done at the Facts Music Awards. From Ateez to Seventeen to (G)i-dle to Got7! (and even Super Junior, which btw, I forgot to mention that burn the floor was LAR!) So actually there was so much live singing at this award show, I almost forgot what reality was. I was hearing people out of breath, but I was also hearing when idols stopped singing because they were out of breath and I was just in awe. I personally love LMR performances, I find I just connect with them so much better. If I can hear an artist's authenticity when they perform, no matter how many mistakes they make, I love it. It’s my favourite. And actually, for those who haven’t seen my video on MAMA, I’ll explain briefly the type of performances we tend to see in Kpop.
So we have LAR performances, which is “Live All Recorded”. These consist of idols lip syncing over a prerecorded track, possibly while they weren’t dancing so it’s usually super clear, super stable and basically perfect, but doesn’t match the idol when they move and dance. For example, an idol could literally be out of breath, jumping around yet their vocals sound absolutely perfect and you can usually just tell.
Then we have LMR performances, which is “Live Music Recorded”. These consist of idols having a backup track that assists them, but their own live vocals can peak through. You can usually almost hear two voices, and you can hear the difference between the two voices, especially when the real vocals stop or whatever the case may be. This again, is personally my favourite type of performance. I think even if an idol can’t finish their part, if the effort is there, I love it. And having a backup track is so necessary when you’re dancing so much.
Then we have AR performance, “All Recorded”, and this is just lip syncing to the studio version. So it’s different from LAR, because LAR plays a different track. And then always on live vocals, we will have some type of voice smoothing filter or autotune, but that’s the new age of kpop. It’s fine.
Now please keep in mind, these are just descriptions of the types of performances we tend to see. I’m not stigmatizing one over the other. I think idols have super valid reasons for picking whatever type of performance they do. Whether it’s to achieve a more perfected sound, that some people prefer, whether it’s to avoid scandal or backlash, whatever the case may be, I understand and I’m not knocking any of them.
