BLACKPINK held their first online concert THE SHOW on January 31, 2021. Many things were revealed during the event, from re-arranged songs to band versions, solo stages, original tracks, and more.
Below are just some parts that fans will not forget anytime soon!
1. When the set was stunning
The set for the concert was large and beautifully decorated for each song. It was spacious enough to house numerous dancers, the members themselves, props, and a live band.
The water floor for “DDU-DU DDU-DU” was one of the most eye-catching parts!
2. When Jennie wrote a new rap for “SOLO”
“SOLO” may be two years old but it felt as fresh as ever in THE SHOW. Jennie made a new rap about confidence and being the best. She referenced “DDU-DU DDU-DU”, being on the cover of all major magazines, and how thankful she is to BLINKs.
3. When Lisa impressed with her rap
Attitude and class were Lisa’s trademarks that she conveyed best in her rap. She was laidback and confident, proving her seniority and years of experience.

Jisoo made jaws drop with her fully translated Korean version of Tove Lo’s 2014 song “Habits”. Her vocals were stable the entire time and the emotion in her voice was clear.
She re-arranged “Habits” to make it more sorrowful and emotional, fitting her individual style as a singer.
5. When Rosé slayed with her outfits
Rosé undoubtedly had some of the prettiest clothes during the concert!
One of her outfits that was discussed far and wide on Korean social media sites was her modified Moncler jacket. It was both cropped and made into a skirt for a coherent and creative look.
