En Vogue

The ladies recently did a 30th Anniversary concert special on streaming platform Hittok. They (finally) dusted off Runaway Love and mixed it with Janet's That's The Way Love Goes. I wish there was a higher quality video but i'm so happy to see this song finally performed

I think the official stream is still available. I’ll try to get a higher quality version of it. I’m so happy they finally performed that!
 
This is awesome!! Thanks for posting. Hoping they perform "Whatever" And "Too Gone, Too Long" again one day.

They perform "Whatever" quite often. Guess they replaced it with Runaway Love for this new setlist though.

I wish they could extend their sets by half an hour (their shows are only about an hour long) so that they could include all their hits and fan faves in full, but I guess that's a lot to ask for a group that does as many shows as they do throughout the year!

I'm not sure I've seen them do "Whatever" at any of the UK shows I've been to so far sadly!
 
God the Riddle is a desperate housewife masterpiece. And the video. THE VIDEO. I'll never get the indifference they were shown for this outing. Maybe it was just a year or so too late to ride that pop (ooooooh) bop train - that an untouchable group who blazed a trail with classics, cultural moments and 4-then-3 vocal lightning bolts would be quietly overshadowed still leaves me incredulous. I love the album, but it didn't have any other serviceable radio moments I guess, which just underscores why they really should have been given a promo push that a song with that much gusto deserves. The Stargate was the UK flagship edit, but I don't recall them doing any shows here.

HD upload of the ladies performing No Fool No More on Jay Leno. One commenter posted they looked like they had just clocked out from Accounting job here and now I can't unsee it. it's giving business' casual here for sure but Terry was serving face throughout the entire performance and I love it.

The unnecessarily energetic choreo throughout Cindy’s verses is sending me, though. Whose idea was that?!

They sound great, but I've always thought this was in the wrong key or needed a better arrangement as it just felt something was missing to make it really work.
 


HD upload of their "final" performance as a foursome at the 97 Soul Train Music Awards with the full intro of acts appearing.

Peep in the beginning after Hold On plays you here abit of You're All I Need with Dawn's original lead playing before the start of the performance.


This performance is so bittersweet to me because this moment was supposed to kick of what was to be their hugest era after Funky Divas only for it to be the beginning of the end for EV4.

Omg yes. I never knew she led it originally. Interesting that Cindy also covered Dawn's part in Whatever. Cindy slayed both songs and this performance omg. Cindy's presence here is otherworldy.
 
A deluxe edition of EV3 featuring the original Dawn versions (especially of “Whatever”) and the video version of “Don’t Let Go” (with Terri’s adlibs) would be an instant buy.

They did such a horrible job of removing Dawn's vocals from that album (literally just removed her leads from the potential singles - Whatever, TGTL and DIWBYL and recorded like one new track without her) they should have just left her vocals on the album versions and recorded the new mixes for the single releases. If the album hadn't been delayed so much they could have released it off the back of the success of Don't Let Go (Love) instead of the luke-warm reception of Whatever.
