Videos: En Vogue Rock London

Published: Friday 22nd Oct 2010 by Sam

After an 18 year hiatus, the original line-up of the legendary En Vogue returned to London for a sold-out show at the indigO2 last night.

That Grape Juice was in the house and can vouch for the fact that the ladies blew the roof off! See for yourself; peep their performances of ‘Don’t Let Go’, ‘Free Your Mind’, ‘Never Gonna Get It’ after the jump. Interestingly, the ladies also performed ‘Riddle’ (with Dawn, who had left the group when the song was released).

Array

Don’t Let Go

Free Your Mind

Never Gonna Get It

Riddle

Real, pure, and raw talent. Despite all being over 40, Cindy, Maxine, Terry, and Dawn, put on a show many a young starlet would find hard to top. I mean, though just 22, I can see that they simply don’t ‘make’ acts like this any more. While I’ll save the “real vs processed talent” rant for my head, one can only hope new artists really understand the importance of working hard to be great at what you do. For, it’s the very reason the En Vogue’s and co are still thrilling audiences and making a living. Real talent lives for ever and inspires others. New hair colours and autotuned vocals? Not so much.

Your thoughts?

    I LOVE THE TALENT THAT GIRL GROUPS CAN BRING. DESPITE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM BEING GORGEOUS (CINDY IN MY MIND BEING THE BEST LOOKING) EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE LADIES CAN BLOW THE HOUSE DOWN VOCALLY. SOMETHING THAT GIRL GROUPS HAVE LACKED SINCE DESTINY’S CHILD LEFT THE SCENE AND SOMETHING THAT DANITY KANE COULD HAVE GOTTEN WITH MORE WORK AND LESS DRAMA. WITH THAT BEING SAID THE NEXT EN VOGUE IS HERE AND I’M A LITTLE UPSET THAT THAT GRAPE JUICE HAS YET TO COVER THEM. RICHGIRL IS THEIR NAME AND THEY’RE COMPRISED OF LYNDRIETTE, SE7EN, AUDRA, AND BRAVE. THEY ALL ARE NOT ONLY BEAUTIFUL BUT HAVE BEAUTIFUL VOICES AS WELL. THEY ALL SHARE LEAD VOCALS AND THEY’RE NOT OVER SEXED. THEY’RE VERY CLASSY. I CAN’T WAIT FOR MORE FROM EN VOGUE AS WELL AS RICHGIRL. I THINK THAT A TOUR WITH SWV, TLC, AND EN VOGUE WITH RICHGIRL AS THE OPENING ACT WOULD BE WONDERFUL. JUST A THOUGHT. THEY DON’T HAVE TALENT LIKE THIS ANYMORE AND IT’S THE REASON WHY NO ONE IS SELLING RECORDS LIKE THEY USED TO. BRING TALENT BACK LIKE THIS AND RECORD SALES WILL ONCE AGAIN PICK UP. LOOK AT LADY GAGA. LOOK AT BEYONCE. LOOK AT ALICIA KEYS. LOOK AT SADE. TALENT AND GOOD PROMO MAKES FOR SUCCESS.

    Wow, and they are all still in excellent shape and vocal form. The are really the greatest girl group in history in terms of pure vocals. Not many times you get groups where ALL of the singers in the group SHARE taking the lead. I always thought Cyndi and Dawn had the best voices in the group, but they ALL can blow.

    I would not mind seeing them in concert.

  6. Nick October 22, 2010

    Love them!!!!

  11. monique October 22, 2010

    thank u for this phenomenal talent!!!

  12. O LeDoIt October 22, 2010

    Legendary group
    I see there outfits were made by House Of Dereon

  13. rnbboy October 22, 2010

    I was there and they were amazing – the crowd were well up for it – the sophisticated people loving the music dancing – no attitude – just fun

    the New Jack Swing club thing after was amazing – the dancing proper old school!

  14. DMWN October 22, 2010

    Can we just skip the inevitable Destiny’s Child talk for one f****** post and stay focused on the actual topic? Don’t wanna hear any of the comparisons. Don’t wanna hear who sounded better, or which group sold more. Stick to the subject and leave other acts out of this.

    Thanks.

  15. SoPRETTEE1908 October 22, 2010

    en vogue is not to be compared with destiny’s child . en vogue had the pipes that would wake the dead up. DC has good singers, but not like en vogue.

  16. chile please! October 22, 2010

    You know why alot of folk wanna throw modern day groups out there like Destiny Child is because they are young & know nothing about true talent that evolved waaaaaaaaaaaay before Destiny Child was even thought about. En Vouge is the best I love these girls they know they can sing & they have the best girl group Harmonies I ever heard…….(besides the Clark Sisters…but that’s a different Genre of music)! I can’t wait to get home & view these videos because I know they killed that s***! LOVE YOU EN VOUGE!

  17. IKNOWTHETRUTH October 22, 2010

    MY POINT WAS THAT GIRL GROUPS HAVE LACKED REAL SINGING SINCE DC3 LEFT THE SCENE, A GROUP CLEARLY WANTING TO REACH WHAT EN VOUGE DID WITH THEIR VOICES BUT NEVER COULD, NEVER WILL. BEYONCE NEVER DID WHAT ANY OF THE LADIES COULD DO VOCALLY. I WOULD NEVER EVER SAY THAT DESTINY’S CHILD IS IN THE SAME LEAGUE OR CATEGORY NOR WOULD I SAY THAT THEY STAND A CHANCE. BUT THEY ARE THE LAST GROUP WITH REAL SINGING AND REAL HARMONIES. THAT CAN’T BE DENIED. I WANT A NEW EN VOGUE ALBUM. RICHGIRL SINGS JUST LIKE THE LADIES OF THE 90’S GIRL GROUPS. WITH TIME AND WORK AND A LITTLE MORE EFFORT, THEY COULD BE LABELED AS THE NEXT EN VOGUE.

  18. chile please! October 22, 2010

    @ IKNOWTHETRUTH…………OKAY!!! I AGREE! I LIKE HOW YOU CLEANED THAT UP! WORK! I’M ON YOUR TEAM FOR THAT ONE.

  19. theman October 22, 2010

    There is no new En’Vogue’ it’s only 1 them. Nobody else can duplicate them.

  20. Miss Chick Boom October 22, 2010

    my Fav. Girl Groups of all time:
    1)En VOGUE
    2)Destinys Child
    3)SWV
    4)TLC
    5)Xscape

    En Vogue is the MOST talented girl group in the history of girl groups and that is a fact.

    Like DC is like the last talented successful girl group. Every group after them sucked(except 3LW, IMO). But yeah, no other girl group after DC has done anything for me.

  21. latin86 October 22, 2010

    CLASSIC GROUP RIGHT HERE.. They dont make em like that anymore..and how cool they did RIDDLE i always liked that song!

  22. Mike October 22, 2010

IF TINA CAN DO IT YALL CAN DO IT……………………………

  29. lola October 23, 2010

    OMG! They sounded just like their f**king singles /albums! These performances are amazing and you know you’re a good performer when your voice, energy, and stage presence uplifts the crowd. I remember En Vogue from the 90’s. I didn’t pay too much attention to them because I was more into Mariah Carey, but I did admire their vocal ability and liked some of their songs. They are definitely the greatest and most talented girl group of all time. Their voices are so soulful, powerful, and unique. They have amazing harmonies. They are a few steps down from Whitney and Mariah and that’s saying a lot! It’s a shame that we have too many female artists now-a-days who rely on GHETTO STRIPPER DANCING, CATCHY MEDLODIES WITH ACCENTS, BOOTY BOUNCING WITH BUBBLEGUM SINGLES, AND WILD AND KOOKY OUTFITS AND ANTICS, to sell instead of pure talent. When will we ever get females like this again to sell real music.

    And to whoever said Richgirl needs more shine on here, they aren’t even as talented as DC. They all can sing, but not SANG and they are so hoochie and generic. BTW the next greatest girl group is SWV!

  30. Ch October 23, 2010

    DON’T TRY TO DISCREDIT DESTINY’S CHILD JUST BECAUSE THEY MAKE POP MUSIC. WATCH THEIR LIVE IN ATL DVD. THEIR HARMONIES ARE JUST AS GOOD AS EN VOUGES. BEYONCE AND KELLY HAVE BEEN AT THIS GROUP THING SINCE 1990….SO DON’T TRY IT MAKE IT SEEM LIKE SINCE EN VOUGE WAS OUT LONGER THEY ARE AUTOMATICALLY BETTER….HAVE A SEAT….DC3 VOCALS ARE JUST AS DAMN GOOD….

  31. JDE97 October 23, 2010

    CH is an airhead.

  32. MaZ October 23, 2010

    EN VOGUE my favorite girl group everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    Saw them live in Paris last sunday and they rocked the house!

    Loved the performances and the energy. They are amazingly talented and beautiful.

    Would love to have a new album from the 4. They can make history again with producers Denzil Foster & Thomas Mcelroy.

    Why can’t they have a proper record deal! Missed 90’s music and artists!

    You can watch my videos of their show in Paris:

  34. English Babe* October 23, 2010

  35. EnVogueFanBeyotchh October 23, 2010

    Naima,you stupid b****.Stop f****** hating on these fine ass,talented women we call,GOD VOGUE.
    If I ever saw ya ass in the f****** street and you was saying all the s*** you sayin,I would f****** slap you silly. Don’t you dare disrespect GODVogue like that!!!! You always up on an En Vogue post saying s***,get off their f****** titties and get a life!

  36. nickalus Randle October 24, 2010

    I love them, they are still FIRE!!!

  37. Ishaam October 24, 2010

    @IKNOWTHETRUTH….this is THE BEST QUOTE OF THE WHOLE POST:

    “SOMETHING THAT DANITY KANE COULD HAVE GOTTEN WITH MORE WORK AND LESS DRAMA.”

    F*** album sales, cuz that never = talent…DK was THE BEST GIRL GROUP FROM 2005-CURRENT…I watched them fight for their stardom tooth and nail, running, rehearsing, grinding, KILLING VOCALS in and out of the booth…Shared vocals, all of them could dance, all of them could sing, and I agree with less drama, They woulda been the only girl group to carry a torch in todays girl group Image.

    UP NEXT IS RICHGIRL, HANDS DOWN THEY ARE LIKE DANITY KANE AND THE ORIGINAL DESTINY’S CHILD ROLLED UP IN 1.

    EN VOGUE WILL ALWAYS BE THE STARTING POINT FOR ANY GIRL GROUP THAT THINKS THEY ARE DIVAS!

  38. Soulful Roses October 25, 2010

    En Vogue are ICONS. Period. 🙂

  39. intellione October 25, 2010

    ICONS…look FANTASTIC and always #1….Much respect to Envogue!!!
