In what is the dream battle for those that love the idea of K-Pop divas or for those that just want to blow out their speakers, Hyorin and Ailee faced off against each other and the results were pretty good and very loud.
One is known as Korea’s Beyonce and the other one made her first big waves in the K-Pop sphere by riding Bey’s jock so hard with “Halo”. Both have been labeled “divas”, presumably because the term diva has now been watered down so much that it essentially means “can sing boisterously for a long time and screw subtlety”. And both sing K-Pop as well, so the showdown between the two of them seemed to be inevitable. And wouldn’t you know it, Ailee won because when it comes to singing loudly, no one does it as persistently or with as much conviction as the Jersey product:
SISTAR‘s Hyorin and Ailee, who are both known for their amazing voices, dueled it out on the competitive singing show. Ailee covered Shin Seung Hoon‘s ballad “You Who Shone Inside a Smile“, while Hyorin took on Kim Gun Mo‘s well-known hit “First Impression“.
Both their performances impressed the other singers in the waiting room as well as the audience, but Ailee took the win for the round with a score of 365 points.
Hyorin put on a better show but if the score was based on the ability to melt eardrums with volume, then there are few who can touch Ailee.
The Ailee World Domination Tour continues. Get behind it or be prepared to be blown away by the jet engines that power Ailee’s lungs.
