In the first battle rounds for WIN, Team B conquered with the judges vote for their third consecutive win over Team A. But the win actually means nothing at all.
Last week, Team A recruited the help of Taeyang as a coach, and Team B got the assistant of G-Dragon. Both teams performed their coaches’ signature songs through vocal performances and dance routines. Team A took on “Only Look At Me” and danced to “Wedding Dress”, but the judges of Big Bang and 2NE1 were left unimpressed with Daesung of Big Bang even commenting: “You’re like a newly opened restaurant that has no distinct flavor. Although the food was delicious, I wouldn’t want to eat here again.”
The same can’t be said for Team B who swagged out after putting an original spin on “One Of A Kind”, and danced for dear life to “That XX” and “Crayon”. The judges were entertained and the boys of the group even made fangirls out of the ladies of 2NE1. In the end, Team A only received the votes of Seungri and T.O.P losing 5-2. But the judges’ votes mean nothing as its actually the viewers who decide who wins the three battles.
After international and domestic voters voted on Daum and Kakako Talk, Team A led the viewers vote with 51.37% to Team B’s 48.63% winning by a mere 2.74%. This is their first win since the show began airing in early September. Three battles remain, as viewers can vote again October 11th-13th after the second battle ends next Friday.
