Mnet’s “Kingdom: Legendary War” has shared a new behind-the-scenes glimpse of the epic performances from its spectacular third round!

Unlike the first two rounds of competition, Round 3 of “Kingdom” is divided into two parts. In the first part of the round, the six competing groups split up into two teams of three groups each for rap, dance, and vocal unit collaboration performances. (ATEEZ, Stray Kids, and BTOB formed one team, while THE BOYZ, SF9, and iKON formed the other.)

On May 20, the idol competition show kicked off the second part of the round: a battle in which the groups go head-to-head with “No Limit” performances, meaning that they are free to perform any song of their choosing and to bring in whatever featuring artists they’d like.

iKON got things started with a high-energy cover of BLACKPINK’s “Pretty Savage,” featuring none other than BLACKPINK’s Lisa herself, while Stray Kids took the stage next with a mashup of BLACKPINK’s “DDU-DU DDU-DU” and their own hit song “God’s Menu.”

Check out the photos of their performances—and all the performances from the collaboration battle—below! (You can also watch clips of all the performances here and here.)
