Taeyang performed the forever-teased-but-yet-unreleased 1AM as a special stage on the December 29 broadcast of SBS’ Gayo Daejun and was later joined by GDragon on a remixed Ringa Linga and Bigbang’s Bad Boy.
1AM was previously staged in front of much smaller audiences so there was less audience participation this time around in the much larger hall (plus the lack of live band makes a big difference.) It’s still a lovely song though and a good performance, even though I felt Taeyang’s energy and voice were still not 100% (probably from his marathon performances a week ago.) Get some rest, TY! Too bad he couldn’t perform in that lovely Tom Ford suit, we needed more than just a few seconds of that eyecandy…
I also enjoyed the relaxed and friendly feel of the joint stage with GD as well – it’s not often that we get to see them sort of just vibe together onstage. Something different for the end of the year from the besties… (Though it must be said, I’m kind of hating on the cameramen for not simply focusing on the performers rather than the audience and parts of the stage. Wtf? And missing the hug? Fancam ) Alternate link to the full GDYB stage here.
Taeyang also participated in the multi-artist song “You are a Miracle” at the end of the show – here’s the cut:
