There was a reason for BoA choosing to lip-sync for her performance.
BoA had her comeback showcase on ‘BoA 4352’ on July 28 and SBS ‘Inkigayo’ on July29, for her song “Only One” from her 7th album.
She chose to lip sync for both of those performances. During her interview, she stated, “I decided to perform where I will be at times sing and times when I lip sync. This is because it will be impossible to sing and dance perfectly at the same time.”
The dance version of “Only One” made people curious if she would be able to do live with that performance.
Boa stated, “I think it would be too greedy if I perform live while doing the dance. I don’t think it’s possible for someone to do. It’s not that I didn’t practice. But because my body shakes when I dance, I can’t do anything about controlling my vocals.”
Although she lip synced in her comeback and “Inkigayo” performances, the visuals made the performance standout. The dance with TVXQ’s Yunho and SHINee’s Taemin showed a great performance.
