Girls' Generation's Taeyeon revealed her side of the story on why her collaboration stage with Wiz Khalifa was cancelled at the '2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards'.

On December 3, she took to her Instagram Story and wrote:

"A lot of people have been wondering about the stage from yesterday so I'd like to explain (If it were me I'd be curious too). Yesterday, I was rather anticipating the performance myself after greeting Wiz Khalifa and rehearsing with him. But during the broadcast, I heard that the audio file we were supposed to use had a problem. 

That's why we weren't able to properly do a sound check, and ultimately did not perform together. I was very disappointed. 

To sing on stage live, you need a background audio track, but instead of an MR, only an AR had been prepared. As someone who had to sing live, I was a little taken back, but it was the right thing to put more meaning in the performance and the collaboration... honestly there aren't many opportunities like this. 

So I thought that if I just sing louder than the AR, I could cover it up, and the staff also hoped to create a grand stage by putting in all of their effort. We had decided to go with it. But just a few hours before the performance, I came upon the unfortunate news, and in a lot of ways, because it's performing overseas, there must be unexpected occurrences. 

The day before the show, I had been waiting for the rehearsal with Wiz Khalifa but they said that there was a problem with the stage equipment so I had to return to the hotel. Several problems probably occurred all at once. I myself am very disappointed and saddened that I wasn't able to perform a great stage like this. 

I hope that no misunderstandings will come out of this between anyone. Also, there must have been many of you who'd heard about the stage beforehand and had anticipated it, so I'll do my best to greet you with an even better stage next time. Thank you for cheering me on and giving me energy til the end yesterday, everyone."

Does that clear up some things for you?

lol everyone;s blaming Mnet as if they really know all the things just reading an article from internet or insta! Its taeyeon who didn't show up for the real performance not Wiz! it shows how unprofessional and careless she is. Don't believe what you read believe what you saw, Wiz was there performing though Mnet could just cancel the whole show if sth went wrong with the recording! kpop idols can't even take risk so fucking liar, and saying "Taeyeon really wanted to perform, she was ready" blah blah as if we'd pity her and they think we're stupid to believe everything lol

That is the problem when you don't have a live band and all is digital.

Poor #Taeyeon ... even when she wins (award) she still loses all the bad press :(    she dont deserve this folks ... her music is amazing ... I love her.

The truth is already out on instagram just search. most of the comments are just speculating

JeffBenson Sunday, December 4, 2016

If I was a collab with #Taeyeon ... I would try to call her ahead of time to make sure it was real first :D .. then I would tell her I loved her music and was honored when she accepted to share a stage with me ... I would have sent her flowers. I would have made sure she had everything she needed in HK. Or you could treat her like garbage and call her a liar on instagram ... 15hrs my ass.

It's always more convenient to pass the blame to Mnet.

SophiiSone msvn Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Of course, especially when it is their fault after all. It is never convenient for us to watch unnie take the backlash for something she did not do wrong.

JeffBenson Sunday, December 4, 2016

I don't understand, wouldn't they still have to have flown 15hrs to get to HK even if Taeyeon didn't sing with them? Did they only come the 15hrs just because they wanted to sing with Taeyeon?

Back to the same old excuse SM. You already used "the file got corrupted, and we don't have a backup" excuse for the Mr. Mr. music video, remember? Why not try "we had it on a Samsung Note7, and it burned up." Digital data is cheap, SM. What, no Cloud storage? No thumb drives? You should have double back-ups for everything.

It was MAMAA's responsibility to secure the track! STUPID!

rickkelly Apinkne1 Sunday, December 4, 2016

Ha! When I travel on business the data travels with me and we have backup ready via internet. It doesn't matter if the place I'm visiting is supposed to make everything ready. Data storage is cheap insurance.

Apinkne1 rickkelly Sunday, December 4, 2016

You are crazy stupid.

Junj Apinkne1 Sunday, December 4, 2016

Might have been MAMA's responsibility but not having a backup seems like a very basic mistake to make - especially when it's a major award ceremony. You need to stop calling people stupid with your "argument" because stooping to name-calling is just immature.
