EXID’s Solji left the audience in awe with her performances on MBC’s Lunar New Year special broadcast Mask Face, leading to her win on the show on February 18th!
As the show’s title suggests, participants wear a mask throughout their performance and do not reveal their identities until the very end. As such, the audience do not have the chance to judge the book by its cover and listen solely to their vocal abilities.
In particular, Solji’s collaboration stage with singer-comedian Shin Bora stood out as they showed their exceptional singing skills while hitting the high notes of Ailee’s “Don’t Touch Me.” This song allowed the original singer to achieve numerous wins on music shows in October 2014. In fact, Shin Bora and Ailee are close friends in real life.
Besides covering the pop song, Solji also showed her abilities as the main vocalist of EXID as she sang her version of two emotional songs, overwhelming the audience with teary eyes. While keeping her mask on, she performed Gummy’s “We Should’ve Been Friends” and Shin Young Jae’s “The Reason I Became a Singer.”
Other contestants for the night includes 2AM’s Jokwon, Hong Jin Young, K.Will, and Kim Ye Won.
