Lotanna: If anyone told me before this show that Karen Marie Ørsted (nom de guerre, MØ) was going to be dancing on bars and crowd surfing, I might not have believed them. MØ makes pop music, but pop music with a harder edge. With her musical beginnings originating in the Danish punk scene, her stage antics are not entirely unexpected. The show was lively, with an energy that radiated throughout the entire room. The entire crowd was dancing, I was dancing, and I couldn’t see them, but I’m sure the bouncers and bartenders were probably dancing too. MØ’s stage presence is larger than life, and the 9:30 Club was hardly big enough to contain her effervescence.

Jordan: In my eyes, the one factor that distinguishes a good singer from a good performer is their stage presence. I look for someone who makes it impossible for me to take my eyes off them. MØ never stopped dancing. From the bar to the crowd, MØ danced with the greater majority of the audience. I give credit to anyone who can light up a room that way.
