The results are in.
Team A has once again won the audience vote, beating out Team B by a very slim margin of 0.52%.
Team A took 50.26% of the votes, beating Team B by 0.52%. Team B took 49.74% of the votes. It is reported there were about two times the number of votes for the first battle. Team A also won the judges’ votes.
For the first battle, Team A took 51.37% of the votes, beating Team B by 2.74%. Team B took 48.63% of the votes. Team B won over the judges in the first battle, but unfortunately, the vote that really counts is the audience vote as that decides which team gets to debut from YG Entertainment.
The second battle was aired this past Friday, and along with the usual singing and dancing rounds, there was also a special round in which each team performed self-written songs. Team A, composed of Song Min Ho, Kim Jin Woo, Lee Seung Hoon, Nam Tae Hyun, and Kang Seung Yoon, performed a song composed by Kang Seung Yoon which was complimented as a unique song that suits each member of the team well. Team B, composed of B.I, Kim Jin Hwan, Bobby, Song Yoon Hyung, Go Jun Hwae, and Kim Dong Hyuk, performed a song composed by B.I, Bobby, and Kim Jin Hwan which was complimented as a stylish and well-written song. In the end, Team A won over the judges, Yang Hyun Suk, Park Jin Young, Yoon Jong Shin, and Lee Hyun Do.
There is one more battle left to decide which team will debut. The first and second battles each count for 20% of the total results, and the final battle counts for 60%, making the last battle extremely important, especially with the slim margin that Team A is winning Team B over.
Here is the full video of the second battle. Which team do you think did better overall, and which team do you think had the better original song?
