#9 Kep1er

#8 (G)I-DLE

(G)I-DLE's appearance on "You Heeyeol's Sketchbook," was deeply praised by netizens and K-pop fans as the member proved that their vocals were on another level. Others noted that the K-pop groups performance was a way to silence their haters.


BTOB's vocal skills are noted to be on such a high level, they have been compared to vocal coaches. When the K-pop group performs, BTOB always sing live and are always stable. BTOB always manages to fail when they lip-sync because they are so much better performing live.

#6 BTS

BTS is a K-pop group that sings live even though they have explosive performances. ARMYs, the fandom name of BTS, can attest to the K-pop boy group's ability to perform live as BTS's vocals are truly stable regardless of their exhausting dance choreography.

#5 Girls' Generation (aka SNSD)

Girls' Generation's (aka SNSD) debut song "Into the New World" is used to test the vocal skills of female trainees. The track is high-pitched and has multiple high notes. Even though the song is difficult to perform in theory, the members of SNSD perform the song live without fault


RBW's MAMAMOO is known for their amazing vocals. Similar to the previous group, MAMAMOO often finds it difficult to lip-sync, preferring to sing live for all of their performances. MAMAMOO's live vocals are often better than their backing tracks when they perform on stage.

#3 EXO

The MR-removed versions of EXO's "Tempo" and "Ko Ko Bop" have previously gone viral in the past, proving that EXO can sing live while dancing complicated choreographies. This is why a lot of netizens, fans, and younger K-pop artists look up to SM Entertainment's EXO.

#2 Red Velvet

Red Velvet's vocal-line consists of Wendy, Seulgi and Joy, and all of them are known for their vocal prowess. The Red Velvet members have gotten a lot of praise for their "Queendom" encore stage, with netizens and fans saying that Red Velvet's live vocals are among the best.


Previously on the 19th of August, 2020, JYP Entertainment posted ITZY's "Not Shy" stage practice on YouTube. Netizens and fans were quick to praise the K-pop girl group as the ITZY members not only danced the tiring choreography but they also performed the song live.
