The Show Must Go On

I'm not really a musician but I've been in a lot of instrumental ensembles (trumpet) and I've played guitar/bass for church over the past 15 years. Even though you practice and rehearse, there are going to be mistakes. The important thing is to not draw attention to your screw up and keep going as if nothing happened. I used to mess up while strumming chords on the guitar and wince. People would later tell me that they wouldn't have noticed anything if they hadn't seen my expression.

Anyway, here is a performance by Kara, yet another all-girl K-pop group. At about 3:15 into the video, one of the girls (wearing the pink thing on her head) forgets her dance routine. It wasn't all that noticeable until she lets out a loud "Ah!" into her microphone. Newspaper articles said that after the performance, she ran to the restroom and cried for an hour. I didn't think it was that bad. At least we know they weren't lip-synching.

Kara - Pretty Girl

Yes, the English is atrocious. "If you wanna pretty, every wanna pretty..." Huh?! That's pretty lame considering two of the girls went to high school in the U.S.
