BLACKPINK took to the stage at Coachella to perform hits from the past and present.
In the words of the LA Times, the quartet “brought the rigor and charm of K-Pop” to the festival, putting the audience “in the canon of K-Pop crossovers”.
Celebrities all over the world couldn’t get enough of their historic performance–here are some of the highlights.
Billboard editors Jeff Benjamin and Bianca Gracie with their take on the performance.
Oh I'm obsessed. They transcended their past performances and looked like global superstars. I haven't said this about a lot of K-pop acts but they really brought it. Can't wait for tour. https://t.co/PzsbOCH257

Rosalía and Blackpink blew me TF away tonight! It’s so awesome to see these women from different genres and cultures completely DEMOLISH their first Coachella performances 🔥
