The recent episode SBS' "Inkigayo" featured performances from the hottest K-pop groups. However, IU stomped them all and claimed the No. 1 spot!
The recent episode of "Inkigayo" hosted performances from the hottest K-pop groups in the music scene like Lovelyz and WINNER. HyunA's 3-member group "Triple H" was also at the show and performed their newest song "365 FRESH".
Lovelyz performed their song "Now, Us" and was nominated to be number one. WINNER was also nominated for "REALLY REALLY" along with IU's "Palette".
As reported by All Kpop, IU stomped all of them and claimed 1st place for her performance with "Palette". "Palette" is the title track of her newest album with the same title in which she collaborated with BIGBANG's G-Dragon.
This is not the first time IU won 1st in "Inkigayo" though. IU won 1st place in the same show a month ago for her performance of "Through the Night".
Aside from IU, Highlight and Girl's Day were also nominated for 1st place. The same episode marked the comeback for Dream Catcher, Winner, Oh My Girl, and Teen Top.
On April 22, IU won 1st again for her performance with "Plz Don't Be Sad". The nominees include Zico and WINNER.
IU's third time winning 1st place was on April 29 for her performance of "Palette". It was a close fight between her and WINNER for their performance of "REALLY REALLY".
IU now has a total of 4 wins from "Inkigayo". Fans are now starting to wonder what she would do if she could achieve the 5th win.
In other news, KpopStarz reports that IU may be a guest on the commemorative episode of KBS2 TV's "Happy Together". The show will be having their 500th episode on May 25.
The speculations came into life as IU is a close friend of the show's host Park Myung Soo. However, KBS can neither confirm nor deny IU's appearance on the show and stated they will have to wait when the show airs.
