The members of aespa have been receiving plenty of praise following their performance at Coachella 2022. They not only proved that they have the best stage presence, but they also rightfully earned plenty of praise for their incredible live vocals. They belted out high notes like it was nothing and never missed a beat!
Aespa have been setting records since their debut, and their performance at Coachella was no exception. The members’ debut in Coachella was one of the highlights of the festival’s second weekend!

According to fans who were there, aespa’s performance energized the initially waning crowd, which soon grew in number and began cheering loudly for the group as they opened with their song “aenergy.”
to sum it up before to aespa's performance, the crowd was sparse and the audience wasn't that hype, but after aespa took the stage, the crowd began to congregate and clap for them. they hit the high notes live, the adlibs are loud and lively, the stage presence had me goosebumps

But it is aespa’s vocals that has captured everyone’s attention because the members not only danced through 3 songs, but they did it while singing fully live. While prerecorded vocals are often necessary to preserve artists’ voice through their grueling schedules, aespa defied expectations by performing their entire set list at Coachella live.
first they said aespa won't attend coachella, then aespa will lipsync, then there will be no one watching aespa. in the end, aespa attended coachella, aespa sang live, and this is the crowd that is there watching aespa. pic.twitter.com/jL9ZZr8cRz

And they did it so well! Considering the fact that 3 out 4 songs on the set list include a dance choreography, and considering the difficulty of the songs themselves, aespa’s vocals truly impressed!
they are singing live!! Q U E E N S

And when the group performed their previously unreleased song, “Life’s Too Short,” their harmonizing went on another level altogether.

In fact, even fans were impressed with how well they sounded, despite knowing full well already that the members are amazing vocalists.
I never doubted aespa's voice quality since they are from SM but the goosebumps I felt when they harmonized were real. Ghad.
I think SM really just want to preserve their voice during music shows where no audience would be present.
Now, will wait for a better quality later~

This may have been aespa’s first performance in front of such a large crowd, but their impeccable vocals and stage presence proved they are dedicated professionals.
aespa's coachella performance was amazing! the girls barely have any experience performing in front of a live crowd but they did so so well. no backtrack and you can realy hear them sing. they were so good at hyping the crowd too! i'm so proud of them

In fact, though some doubt was cast on the quality of their vocals, fans and audience members were quick to prove that aespa’s vocal performance was truly live…

…and not only that, but it was outstanding too. So much so, that they have earned the title of outstanding live vocalists.
its safe to say that with the performance just now, aespa cemented themselves as great live vocalists. 5 songs. not a hint of backing track in all of those. didn’t hear a single crack in their voices. high notes were HIGH. adlibs were loud and clear. they did so well🏼

Congratulations to aespa for absolutely smashing their Coachella debut and proving their status as worthy vocalists. This group of talented artists proved why they are main stage performers!
