Watch: “Kingdom” Contestants Tear Up The Stage + Prepare To Cover Each Other’s Songs In New Preview
Mnet’s “Kingdom: Legendary War” has shared an exciting sneak peek of next week’s episode!
On April 8, the idol competition show aired a preview of its upcoming episode, which will feature the second half of the first official round of competition that kicked off this week.
The new clip offers glimpses of the spectacular performances by Stray Kids, SF9, and ATEEZ, as well as some hints about what songs they will be performing. “God’s Menu” can be heard in the snippet of Stray Kids’ performance, while “Now or Never” is clearly audible in SF9’s. (ATEEZ’s song choice is still veiled in mystery, but the preview does include a sneak peek of a jaw-dropping high note by Jongho.)
Although the fan votes and video view counts for the round have yet to be tallied, the “Kingdom” contestants then find out their initial results based solely on the votes by the six competing groups and the evaluations by a panel of experts. (Read more about how scores will be calculated for the show here.)
Finally, the clip ends with host TVXQ revealing that the theme of the second round will be “Re-Born.” For their next performances, the contestants will be tasked with covering and reinterpreting a song by one of the other groups. TVXQ then instructs the contestants to prepare to choose a group with whom they want to swap songs.
The second round of “Kingdom” will kick off next week on April 15 at 7:50 p.m. KST.
