Aespa performed at Coachella 2022 as part of 88rising’s Head in the Clouds Forever showcase during the festival’s second week. Their set included hits like “Savage,” “Next Level,” “Black Mamba,” and an English version of their then-unreleased song “Life’s Too Short” from their upcoming EP. Despite the pressure of being a relatively new group at the time, aespa’s performance was notably ambitious but received mixed reviews.

It seems like Korean netizens remain firm on the previous reviews of aespa’s 2022 set, with comments pointing out that the SM Entertainment group also failed to impress at the time. However, some netizens agree that the girl group has gotten much better at live performances now.

“Did well, huh…?” “At that time, NingNing’s voice was really trembling with maximum tension. It wasn’t that she did extremely well, but it wasn’t that bad, either. Compared to BLACKPINK, they received a lot of criticism, but considering it was their first face-to-face stage as rookies, it must have been tough. Still, it’s fortunate they managed to make up for it with later live events and tours. NingNing really did well TT “ “Boosting them too early.” “If they did it now, they’d probably do much better.” “Is it considered good only if you win? :X” “Seems like they did well but still got criticized, huh?” “Except for Winter, the tone was a bit off, which was disappointing.” “Hmm… but I still wouldn’t say they did super well. BLACKPINK set the bar too high.” “Did well, right?” “Every time I watch ‘Savage,’ I can’t tell if they’re too excited or nervous, but considering their skills, it seems they didn’t do well, though ‘Next Level’ was good. But posting this at this time doesn’t seem to benefit aespa…” “Only send BLACKPINK to Coachella… The pitch was too high. The tones didn’t match. Is this professional???” | TheQoo
