-You debuted in 2008 in Korea and will start your activities in Japan. Shall we talk about the birth of SHINee as a group?

Minho: We passed an audition or were headhunted, and then practiced as SHINee for about a year before debuting in Korea.
Key: We have had our activities with this concept of contemporary band since we debuted in Korea. It means we pursue the newest trends in everything from music and dance to fashion. This part won’t change in Japan.

MR (Music Removed) videos have been an increasingly common way for netizens to gauge how well idols perform during live broadcasts, as a way to see how well they can actually sing. Recently, Mnet’s “Idol Chart Show” compared the MR clips of the idol singers, and selected the best of the best.

TVXQ was selected as the overall winner, from a field of Korea’s best idol singers. Their reason? ”Not only can they sing well live, but they dance well while performing!” They showed clips of TVXQ’s comeback MR removed performance for “Keep Your Head Down“, and the proof was in the pudding, folks – these guys are good.

For giggles, the MCs focused on Changmin’s incredible range, but also his habit of pointing upwards with his index finger when he’s going for those big notes. Then, they both commented on how much Yunho has improved since his debut days, by comparing his “Keep Your Head Down” performance to a live performance of “Hug“, where his voice cracked.

The list!Collapse )

I'm sorry, but Jonghyun's voice is so annoying lately that I have to disagree with this xD
