Watch: “Produce X 101” Trainees Show Their Talents As They Cover Songs By Hwasa, Zico, Bruno Mars, And More
On the June 7 episode of Mnet’s “Produce X 101,” the contestants began the position evaluation!
With only 60 trainees remaining after the eliminations last week, they were tasked with teaming up to stage a cover performance that would showcase their talents in a position.
In addition to the categories of vocal, dance, and rap positions, this season added two “X” songs that challenged the trainees to take on two positions at a time: dance and vocal, or dance and rap. Winners for the “X” songs receive double the benefit points compared to the other songs if they succeed.
The position evaluation songs are:
Rap position: Block B member Zico’s “Yes or No” featuring Penomeco and The Quiett, HAON and VINXEN’s “Barcode”
Dance position: Imagine Dragons’s “Believer” (Remix), Bruno Mars’s “Finesse” (Remix) featuring Cardi B, Jason Derulo’s “Swalla” featuring Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign (Remix)
“X” position: Charlie Puth’s “Attention” (vocal and dance), Ja Mezz, Andup, and WINNER member Song Mino‘s “Turtle Ship” featuring Paloalto (rap and dance)
