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.
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.
