4minute joins g.o.d., TVXQ, and Wheesung for the "Legend of Music Bank" stage by performing a song of one of Korea's K-pop icons, BoA Kwon. Many other idols have covered BoA's songs including SNSD, JOO, KARA, and more.

Tonight, 4minute covers one of BoA's well-known songs, "No.1". BoA released her 2nd Korean album, "No.1," on April 2002. "No.1" debuted at #1 on Korean monthly charts with 232,400 units sold and continued to stay at the top for the next 4 months. The album was the 2nd best selling album of 2002 with 544,853 units sold.

In 2002, BoA won 3 Bonsang and 3 Daesang awards, marking it one of her best years in her Korean singing career.

Check out 4minute's version of BoA's 2002 hit song below. What did you think of their rendition?

Hmm, (not really associated with 4minute so i don't know their names lol) but the girl with the short hair had a decent voice when she sang. I think they did pretty good when singin the chorus, a little shaky at some parts but not bad, not bad :)

I don't know.. I didn't like it, although I'm very happy to hear No.1 sang by another people! :)

Thanks for the vid.

I don't really watched a lot of NO.1 perf so I am not really sure how they fared dance wise. But vocally they did pretty OK. I think their voice isn't suitable for BoA's song lol. BoA's song ain't easy to sing at all

I guess I'll just put what I posted on AKP.

4minute's performance was... Well one way to put it is: one 15 year old BoA > five members of 4minute. I mean Jiyoon and Sohyun performed well enough, though Jiyoon could have sung a bit more sweetly. Gayoon sang well but didn't look like she was into the song at all. Hyuna and Jihyun were too sexy and Hyuna didn't even know the choreography properly. Sorry I like 4minute, especially Jihyun, but I think f(x) would have been a better fit this song. Edit: If they had to cover a BoA song then I think Valenti would have worked best for them.

Just so everyone knows I'll put the member names.

Jiyoon - Short dark brown hair
Sohyun - Short blonde hair (though the lighting makes it look brown)
Gayoon - Long blonde hair
Hyuna - Long black hair
Jihyun - Long red hair

I thought it was...almost terrible, but that short-haired girl totally saved the performance. (I'm sorry, I do not know their names) I'm not the type that dislike things easily so it came as a total surprise that I thought this was bad when I've considered past BoA-tributes to be good and likable.

It makes you appreciate BoA even more though.

they all seem so outta breath, boa sang this at such a young age when she just barely started her career and she did not sound this outta breath...

Personally, I'm normally very happy to see other artists pay tribute to BoA, most commonly there have been various covers of "No.1" & "My Name" (compared to the original, yeah, they're obviously lacking), but, I honestly felt bad for 4minute. Most people don't honestly realize that dancing and singing simultaneously is quite strenuous and the quotes above took the words right out of my mouth.

Hyuna (as much praise as she gets for dancing/being "sexy") and Jihyun both made me cringe in the beginning, Gayoon wasn't too bad [even if she barely danced along] Sohyun and Jihyun were the best [regardless of how out of breath they got at times] imo.

No.1 got covered a lot ! :o :D

4minute perf :
- Outfit : 8 - I still like it on BoA better, 4minute's tops look like a fishing net :lol:
- Dancing : 7 - lacking some kind of energy =/
- Vocal : 6 - they were like almost out of breath on the high notes =/

Overall : 7/10 :)

Although I am happy that they cover BoA's song, I don't like this version...
In conclusion, BoA is the only one who can make her song sound wonderful :D because she is the legend :)
