This episode continues Round 1 of Peak Time. This is the Rival Match. The judges pick two teams to compete using the same theme. Then the judges pick which group performed the theme the best. The winning team will get additional votes.
There’s no eliminations during Round 1 or Round 2, but the amount of votes they get will determine if they get eliminated or move on to Round 3.
My favorite performances from episode 4
- Team 8:00 (DKB) performing ‘Bang’ by After School. They competed in the Girl Group theme. They definitely remade the song ‘Bang’ to suit their style. I loved the energy and overall vibe from their stage. It’s always a treat to watch DKB perform.
- Team 2:00 (NTX) performing ‘The Boys’ by Girls Generation. They also competed in the Girl Group theme. The lyrical and musical change they did to this song was spot on. The lyrics fit the song so perfectly.
I absolutely loved both team 8:00 and 2:00 performances. I can’t pick a top favorite. Everyone should check out both stages.
Check out my Peak Time After Show for additional commentary and rewatch all the performances from episode 4 with me.
