Some people that don’t like K-Pop try to make the argument that idols don’t have vocal skills, and hide behind pre-recorded vocals and lip syncing. Fortunately, MR removed videos exist to prove them wrong! These videos remove all but the live vocals of a performance so that listeners can hear how the idols really sound while performing. Here are 20 of the most impressive performances from recent comebacks!
