According to an industry source, the trainees of “Produce 101 Season 2” have re-entered the dorms and have reportedly begun practicing for the concept song evaluations.
For the next round of evaluations, Mnet released five different concept songs – including an electro-dance track titled “Showtime,” a punk synth pop track titled “I Know You Know,” an EDM dance track titled “Open,” a deep house track titled “Never,” a hip-hop track titled “Oh Little Girl” – for viewers to assign to various trainees through an online poll.
The source stated, “After the second round of eliminations [which will take place based on the position-based evaluations], 24 of the 59 trainees that are currently practicing will be eliminated. Like last year, if a trainee is eliminated from a certain concept song group, that group will have to be reorganized again accordingly.”
