Baekhyun and Chen took the stage on Immortal Song 2, and they completely owned their song. The boys showed off their powerful, controlled vocals and wowed fans, audience members, netizens, the judges, and fellow competitors alike. They showed that despite being rookies, EXO is a force to be reckoned with.
At their first performance on Immortal Song 2, they performed their own rendition of Lim Hee Sook’s song “I Sincerely Didn’t Know” and added their own special twist to it.
They completely surprised everyone with their powerful vocals, with many netizens going to messaging boards praising the group they once underestimated. The netizens and fans stated,
“Sorry for accusing you guys of being backed by SM… EXO was good.”
“They really did well. Hard to believe they’re rookies.”
“Their performance made me shed tears!”
“EXO sang really well! They’re definitely talented.”
Unfortunately for the boys, while the performance was spectacular, it wasn’t enough to grab them the first place win. Lim Hee Sook, who happened to be the judge, stated,
“You two are young, so it’ll be difficult to express love.”
To which both Baekhyun and Chen responded with,
“Yes. We still haven’t experienced true love.”
Despite not winning, Baekhyun and Chen showed off a very impressive first performance on the show, and they also showed everyone else just what a threat they can be. Perhaps next time, D.O will join them on stage.
The boys are currently recording for their second performance on Immortal Song 2. It’s known that Chen, Baekhyun, D.O., Kai, Sehun, Xiumin and Lay are the EXO members who attended the recording, but fans speculate that this time around, Chen and Baekhyun will be the only ones singing again. We’ll have to wait for official confirmation though.
