On the recent episode of SBS Strong Heart, the Don made a confession about her mistakes on stage. Jessica was reenacting ‘mistakes’ on SNSD performances such as flying-shoe incident on TMYW, dolphin-screaming on Gee, and the infamous sound-skipping incident on Himnae. But before the reenacments, she also revealed a secret about her… laziness.
Jessica talked about how SNSD has 9 members and they have to sing together during the chorus. As we all have known, Jessica and Taeyeon are the main singers of the group, thus they have to sing louder than the rest of the girls. She said, “This is a secret, Once in a while, I don’t sing during the chorus. I sing my own part, but when we supposed to sing together, I don’t sing.” She added, “So I want to use this chance to say apologize to Taeyeon. Taeyeon, I’m sorry.”
LOL Jessica, if this make you feel better… I tell you a little secret: Taeyeon doesn’t sing that much on chorus either. Or at least that what I recently noticed on a Taeyeon’s fancam when they were performing Chocolate Love at LG Mobile World Cup. Guh. Too bad I can’t embed the video here because Youtube has suspended the channel (protonic9’s) :////
On the clip, it was pretty obvious that not everyone sing. They kind of taking turns in singing during the chorus, which is quite interesting if they originally supposed to sing all together with no exception. All this time I thought it’s usual for them to do so, because I noticed that on the live stages the voices who dominate the chorus are keep on changing. Sometimes you’ll hear Taeyeon’s voice the most, but sometimes it’s the other lead vocals’ voice who dominates the chorus. But I guess it’s not always the lead vocals who ended up dominating the chorus, though. I’ve heard Hyoyeon sang the loudest on some Baby Baby performances (and maybe that’s because her part was right after the chorus).
[UPDATED] Found another Taeyeon’s Chocolate fancam.. but since this one is a bit too Taeyeon-focused, so it’s not really seen how they taking turns during the chorus. However it’s enough to prove that Taengoo doesn’t sing all the chorus either XD
Haven’t seen the infamous Himnae sound-skipping incident yet? Watch the embarassing yet hilarious clip below.
Haha I just can’t stand the second-hand embarassement from watching this clip XD

Ah, CodeMonMon’s back at least… hopefully SSF and protonic will be soon
The taeng clip is cute… love her little wink at 46 secs. I’m not surprised every so often one person misses a bit of the chorus… but surely they’ve got to work that out beforehand, otherwise you might end up with all of them stopping at once!
I miss prot ,almost everyday,he….or she used to upload videeos, i miss her…or him
oh Jessi….you are…a warm ice. i seriously love her more and more everytime.
Haha… I got a good laugh out of the “Himnae sound-skipping incident” video. The girls’ reactions are so cute.
dammit protonic is the best!
i think for tae and sica…since they have some solo and notes to belt at the end of songs…they usually sing softly/lipsync during chorus… so that they have energy left when they need to sing those end notes…LOL
When I saw the title, I instantly thought “Tiffany?” But that’s hardly a secret is it? =P
And lol. I guess it’s a strain on some of the members if they have to perform multiple times a day so they give each other breaks. It’s true, you can hear some voices stand out more often. I guess someone has to sing louder to make it sound more like a melody and less like a choir. I used to hear Fany alot, but I guess she’s been taking it easy lately.
lol. aw. sica’s so funny. such adorable mistakes. ^_^
Regarding “Himnae” — some mistakes prove the girls are singing live — this one proves they are lipsyncing — or — more likely since their mikes are live and they can talk to the man — they are being “sweetened” with a vocal on the track that accompanies them.
Jessica never lets the mike drop until the music and voice are shut off — she keeps up appearances regardless. She was probably wondering “Why me? Why not SeoHyun?”
