Jodeci Booed Off Stage During London Reunion Show [VIDEO]

 

UPDATE: The L that Mr. Dalvin took by falling was exquisite. See below (0:11) mark.

Jodeci’s reunion show in London didn’t go over well. Rather then being greeted with cheers, the  crowd turned against them, booing the group, last night (March 23).

The R&B foursome was part of a lineup of a ’90s group line-up that included Dru Hill, SWV, and Blackstreet, held at the Wembley Arena.

Fans may have already been on edge thanks to the absence of member, Devante, and the remaining three’s performance didn’t help the situation.

Singersroom.com reports:

Concertgoers tell The Running Lip that Devante was a no show, so that left the remaining members K-Ci, JoJo, and Mr. Dalvin. Audience members said they were singing off key, and at one point, Mr. Dalvin jumped off stage, only to have trouble getting back on. Dru Hill had to take the stage to finish up Jodeci’s set.

A fan in attendance tells The Running Lip, “They were singing the classics and everything was good until Mr. Dalvin jumped off the stage and couldn’t climb back up. Then K-Ci & JoJo took the solo and couldn’t keep it together. They missed all the notes they were singing. Dru Hill had to take over and sing their own songs for them.”

Fans reportedly began to leave while the debacle took place on stage, and Twitter blew up with reactions.

 

After the show, K-CI & JoJo went online to thank London fans. “London thank u for having us!  And for those that support us we love u.  We commend the other groups on good show.”

The bad performance was blamed on equipment issues. “The problems we had last night didn’t have anything with us. Ask wembley why we couldn’t rehearse nor proper equipment was [there].”

To Jodeci’s credit, lots of singers have been booed off stage, and at least the reception wasn’t bad as what happened to Jeremih. That was far from a career high point.

  • What The Hell Ever

    Their voices didn’t sound bad from what I heard. I heard a little bit of booing, but I know for a fact I didnt hear any music! lol

  • London

    I was there and was one of the few people that stayed to the end. Dalvin dropped off stage and landed on his back – that is not an equipment or rehearsal problem. Friends of ours have pictures with them in the hotel where there had been drinking since 3pm. K Ci was scratching like he had nits – they sang acappella and no one could make out what they were singing because of the slurring. Sisqo took the mike off them to help save ‘Get On Up’

    It was tragic and horrible

      Im so saddened to hear this! I love Jodeci. Who didnt?

      BUT I’m lol’ing Mr. Dalvin, jumping off the stage, landing on his back, and not being able to get back up.

      Respect to Sisqo & Dru Hill for helping out their brothers who clearly needed help. From what I could see, that was a huge crowd.
