BLACKPINK recently took MetLife Stadium by storm as they kicked off the final leg of their BORN PINK tour, consisting of five stadium shows in the United States.
The global girl group began their U.S. encore performances in New Jersey, where they performed at a sold-out stadium filled with BLINKs and even fellow celebrities. NFL superstar Tom Brady and fellow K-Pop idol Ladies’ Code’s Ashley attended the first day. (G)I-DLE‘s Yuqi, Minnie, and Miyeon attended the second night together.
Night two had an unpredictable start, as the members announced they might need to stop the performance due to inclement weather, but luckily the group was able to complete the show, performing in the pouring rain toward the end.
Already impressing netizens with their dedication and positive attitude when faced with the stormy weather, BLACKPINK’s Jennie also earned attention for another impressive moment that showed her professionalism.
During BLACKPINK’s performance of “Pretty Savage,” it appeared that Jennie’s microphone or mic pack malfunctioned or came undone, causing her to be called off stage to correct the issue.

Jennie smoothly worked her exit from the stage into the choreography and then rushed to staff members, who quickly fixed the issue.

When the staff members were done, Jennie lingered on the stairs while timing her re-entry into the performance, effortlessly re-joining the members and the choreography without missing a beat.
