Milli Brings Out Her Electric Stage Presence to Brookside at The Rose Bowl Thoughts+Photos: Milli at 88 Rising's Head In The Clouds 8/20/22
LOS ANGELES, CA–
“…Surprisingly, one of my favorite acts from day one was Milli, a rapper, singer, and dancer from Thailand. I wasn’t super familiar with her before this year, only getting to know her recently through her collaboration with Changbin of Stray Kids and R. HERO, “Mirror Mirror,” and her work with 88rising. I previously watched her performance with 88rising at Coachella, but I wasn’t sure what to expect. Yet, her energy and charisma blew me away, and I really enjoyed her performance even though I didn’t know many of the songs before attending.
Milli got her start on stage when she competed on the Thai TV show The Rapper 2, where she was praised for her electricity and exotic acting and singing style. She definitely brought her electricity to the festival when she ran out on stage wearing a cloud-inspired headpiece singing “Not Yet!”
This was only Milli’s second time in LA, but she was extremely confident, and her energy was infectious. She brought out all her dance moves– one of my favorite moments of her set was when she jump-roped with her dancers during “Sad Aerobic,” and she interacted with the crowd, giving speeches that expressed her gratuity for being able to perform in LA.
Even though it was hot and the sun was scorching, the crowd was hyped on Milli’s energy. I loved how much fun Milli was having on stage, and I could tell that others felt the same, especially the security guards. I was able to talk to them a little bit in between performances or when they weren’t busy, and many of them agreed that Milli was one of their favorite performers of the night. Even though she’s only 158cm, Milli’s performance made a huge impact. I can’t wait to see what she continues to do with 88rising behind her…”
