The highly anticipated live broadcast of the April 22nd episode of ‘K-Pop Star‘ has finally hit airwaves. Viewers witnessed yet another round of intense battle between the Top 3 finalists: Lee Ha Yi, Baek Ah Yeon, and Park Ji Min. Unfortunately, the finalist to be voted off this week was none other than talented vocalist and pianist, Baek Ah Yeon.
Lee Ha Yi was the first to stand on stage this week with her arrangement of Lee Hyori‘s hit song, “U-Go-Girl“. Her unique voice color and rendition of the song was fully able to move the hearts’ of the three judges, receiving the highest score this week.
Up next was Park Ji Min with her cover of “You Raise Me Up” and indeed, she was once again able to prove her powerful vocal ability despite her younge age, earning her a standing ovation from the audience.
Lastly, Baek Ah Yeon chose 2AM‘s “I Did Wrong“, putting up another impressive cover as she expressed the song through keyboard playing along with her sweet voice.
Although Baek Ah Yeon ended up with an elimination, she maintained a bright smile and stated, “Thank you so much Park Jin Young sunbae. I’d like to thank my fans who came out here to support me and to my parents. Let’s go home together.”
In addition to this week’s performance by the Top 3, a special collaboration stage with the Top 3 finalists took place as they partnered up with GD&TOP, miss A, and Girls’ Generation‘s Taeyeon and Tiffany.
