In 2020, Lady Gaga collaborated with BLACKPINK in Sour Candy for her recent album. During The Show, Kpop fans had got a chance to witness the aesthetic and musical inclination of Sour Candy.
2. BLACKPINK Fashionable Concert
When you come to think of fashion, you think of BLACKPINK! The Show was just like a Fashionable concert. From various pieces by NCY-based luxury brand The Blonds in Kill This Love, to the fashion each BLACKPINK member wore for their solo performances.
3. The Biggest Hit Ddu-Du-Ddu-Du on The Show Stage
BLACKPINK managed one of their biggest hits, Ddu-Du-Ddu-Du, into the next level during The Show. Some new choreography, especially in the dance break part awestruck all the fans who were watching.

7. Jennie’s Solo Rap Version
Jennie’s original version of Solo has been breaking records. Nevertheless, in BLACKPINK: The Show virtual concert, Jennie showed the world that she is beyond her fans’ expectation. She performed a rap version of Solo and also adding a dance break.
8. Lisa Shout Out to Thailand

9. Handmade Signs from BLINKs
Previously, BLACKPINK asked BLINKs to write and send love messages to be shown on The Show live concert. They did! During the performance of Forever Young laid-back version, the quartet was surrounded by love messages and artwork from BLINKs all over the world.
10. Ballad Version of Don’t Know What To Do

11. A journey from Whistle to Boombayah
BLACKPINK earliest songs were one of the performances Kpop fans shouldn’t miss during the virtual concert. Whistle, As If It’s Your Last, and Boombayah have brought BLACKPINK to the level where they are now. Yet, the spotlight went to Jennis’s intro rap verse on Boombayah, and mini solo on As If It’s Your Last.
12. The Compliment Fest
The main show of a concert might be the performances itself. However, it was a precious moment to see BLACKPINK girls compliment each other earnestly. They didn’t stop praising each other during The Show, from their daily routine to vocals and dance routine.
