CL Surprise The Fans with Other 2NE1 Members at Coachella 2022
The former leader of 2NE1, CL, has been known as a soloist after 2NE1’s disbandment. In April 2022, she was also confirmed as one of the line-ups at the Coachella 2022 where she would be performing at the 88rising’s Head In The Clouds Forever stage. It was also known as the Coachella Main Stage!
Aside from CL, 88rising also revealed other line-ups such as Jackson Wang, Hikaru Utada, Rich Brian, and many more. As people have expected, CL’s live performance on April 16 was beyond amazing, not to mention the way she hypnotized the crowds with her performance.
Something impressive happened during CL’s performance break. All of a sudden, she disappeared from the stage and returned with Sandara Park, Minzy, and Park Bom together on the stage! The crowds were getting louder as they heard the familiar intro of 2NE1’s mega single, “I Am The Best”.
2NE1’s performance at the Coachella has been such a blessing for blackjack, especially since it was the group’s first performance after 6 years. Their last appearance was marked on the 2015 MAMA, and shortly after that, the group was disbanded.
