Joining Queendom, Mamamoo became a hot topic and received a variety of enthusiastic responses from the audience thanks to the stunning performances in each round. This group has shown the true value of the title “Mamamoo Genre” through various stages with complete formations in the last 3 rounds. These women perform all genres very well through their appearance with clear concepts, exceptional vocals, and their ability to master the stage.

Mamamoo successfully displayed several different concepts in the Queendom program. Let’s take a look at some of the concepts that Mamamoo successfully displayed in the Queendom program below!

Round 1 – Girl Crush

MAMAMOO was the artist who was the first performer. In the first competition, Queendom had a total of 10,000 points up for grabs. The points were divided into 7000 points gained from the audience, 2000 points from trainees, and 1000 points from the contestants themselves.

MAMAMOO, who performed first, performed their popular song, “Décalcomanie.” Even though they had just finished the concert the day before, the members of MAMAMOO managed to bring a lively performance that showed their vocal skills.

In the first round featuring hit songs from each group, Mamamoo fully showed off their girl-crush charm through the song “Decalcomanie.” Stepping onto the stage together with a military uniform band, Mamamoo immediately stole the attention with a lively atmosphere. The women performed a magic-like appearance by turning the competition into a real concert thanks to the skill to perform live together with a free-spirited performance, thus evoking a response from the audience.

Round 2 – Sexy

In the second round, Mamamoo chose to cover AOA’s song titled “Good Luck.” This group received a high appreciation for their sexiness and energetic appearance that showed their unique charms. They not only did a “1 song 4 charm” performance that showed the characteristics of each member from the arrangement to the concept, but Mamamoo also made their performance even more unique with various expressions and gestures.

At that time, the performance of “Good Luck” which exuded an atmosphere that was completely different from the original song proved the level that caused the fever because the performance had received a high number of views.

Round 3 – Touch

In the “Fandora Box” round where each group had to perform songs chosen by fans, Mamamoo managed to leave a deep impression by performing the song “I Miss You.” Stepping onto the stage with an adult appearance that exudes autumnal nuances, the Mamamoo members showed off their extraordinary singing abilities and made touching performances that evoked the emotions of fans.

In particular, videos that recorded the appearance of Mamamoo when they were trainees and the time they were accompanied by MooMoo (Mamamoo’s fandom name) after the debut aired, making the viewers unable to hold back their emotions. As such, Mamamoo once again proved the position of the girl group that was able to do everything when perfectly displaying various concepts through each round.
