Mnet’s new dance competition show “Hit the Stage” has now aired the second half of its second competition, as well as crowned a new winner!
Last week’s episode featured performances under the theme of “This Love” by former BEAST member Jang Hyunseung, NCT’s Ten, I.O.I’s Kim Chungha, and Block B’s U-Kwon, with the episode ending with Jang Hyunseung in first place. However, the show didn’t reveal U-Kwon’s score at the time, building up the suspense for this episode.
In this week’s episode, “Hit the Stage” first reveals that U-Kwon received 142 points for his performance with Oh My Girl’s YooA, putting him in first place ahead of Jang Hyunseung.
Girls’ Generation’s Hyoyeon is up first for the performances this time, and she takes the stage with younger dancer Yoo Joon Sun with a clever song choice: SHINee’s “Replay,” which features the famous lyrics, “Noona, you’re so pretty.”
Yoo Joon Sun even gives her a kiss on the hand at the end, which the pair says was spontaneous and they’d never done in rehearsal. Hyoyeon ends up taking the top spot so far by grabbing a score of 149.
FeelDog then performs to a remix of Rihanna’s “Work” with Feel Crush, receiving a total score of 159 and therefore taking first place so far.
TWICE’s Momo is up next, and she performs a contemporary dance with her groupmate Mina to the remix of “Crazy in Love” by Beyoncé from the “Fifty Shades of Grey” soundtrack. She receives a score of 141.
Last to perform is INFINITE’s Hoya, who teams up with his longtime friend Choi Hyo Jin to perform a passionate dance to Nick Jonas’s “Close (featuring Tove Lo).” Hoya ends up grabbing a score of 161, beating his good friend FeelDog by just two points, and therefore winning this competition!
