“Price Tag” is a song that never really jumped out at me, but Kinfolk 9 made me wanna give the song another listen. They did a really weird thing, actually. They made their performance almost feel like improv. They joked and talked to each other, interacted and hugged …they made it look like they were graduating or something and singing their swan song and keeping it playful so they don’t start crying at the thought it’s their last performance ever. Do you know what I mean? If you sing a happy song in a sad moment, sometimes you can forget you’re sad in the first place. The judges all called it “fun” which I’m starting to think is the polite way of saying, “we expected more.” Sara B. said they didn’t grab her from the get-go, and that says it all I guess. I wanted to skip it about 30-seconds in.
