Ok so I think his "Gotta Talk To U" stage was one of the better comeback stages of the year so far. The setup reminded me very much of a 1920s speakeasy in an old time gangster movie, which I really enjoyed. Everything from the suits and wingtips on the men to the lighting and sound was on point.
The only thing I didn't like was the way the camera people would cut away to the band or dancers while Seungri was doing something interesting. I wish all the music show camera people would get it together. I don't need to see people freaking out in the audience and I don't really need to see more than a few seconds of the band. Long shots that focus on these two things only take away from my enjoyment of Seungri's (or whoever's) face and that is just not right at all. I also dislike when they keep cutting back and forth to different cameras. I want to see the whole performance, dammit, not just parts of it!
Ok... I'm calm now.
While the stage for "GG BE" was charming, as was RiRi's performance, it reminded me of a lower budget version of this GD & TOP performance of "Don't Leave":
Seungri's was still cute but come on YG, we know you can do better than that.
I'm also a bit disappointed that Jennie Kim didn't get to perform. That would have definitely taken it to another level for me.
To sum it all up for you, I thought Seungri did an outstanding job today. He looked confident, he looked calm and cool and he looked like a million bucks. Let's not forget that he managed all that while singing live for the first time in awhile.
Good job, Seungri! Now where's that "Let's Talk About Love" mv you promised us?
