Jisoo sang her beautiful ballad "Flower", Jennie rocked the stage with her rap song "You & Me", Rosé touched hearts with her emotional medley of "Gone" and "On The Ground", and Lisa wowed everyone with her dance skills and swagger on "Money".
The crowd at Coachella was mesmerized by Blackpink's performance, singing along to every word and cheering loudly for every move.
