DisKover the Cover: AOA – Egotistic

‘Queendom’ is one of my favorite variety shows this year. I was obsessed with it. The show is GIRL POWER and let the idols shine and show their potential and talent. 

Personally I think it’s just a refreshing concept for a survival show and I thoroughly enjoyed it. After the performances in the first round of the competition I thought it couldn’t get better, but I was wrong. They went way beyond my expectations.

This week’s cover is by AOA (Ace of Angels) and their version of ‘Egotistic’ originally by MAMAMOO. Covering another group’s song is hard and more so if you are covering one by a group well known for their incredible vocals, but AOA pulled it off and raised the bar that was already sky high.

This performance, besides letting viewers appreciate how talented the now 5 member group is, also broke gender stereotypes and screamed inclusion which made it unique, new and refreshing. Jimin’s rap at the beginning was a great inclusion to the song. It felt like a completely different tune. 

These girls can sing and their performance was powerful and unique. I just can’t wait for them to have a comeback.
