′Superstar K4′ Contestants to Battle with Songs Chosen for Them by Viewers
The day has come to pick out the top 3 of this year′s Superstar K. One team will be eliminated, while three will go on to the next round.
The live fifth round of Mnet′s Superstar K4, taking place on November 9, will finally show which teams will go on to be the top 3.
The top 4 are DickPunks, Hong Dae Gwang, Roy Kim and Jung Joon Young.
The mission for the round has long been revealed instead of being revealed on the day of the broadcast, because which songs the contestants will sing next have been left to the viewers to choose.
The round, with the subtitle ′Choice of the Nation′, will prove important for the contestants because they will be singing songs that viewers chose for them.
Many previous contestants were eliminated because of their choice of song. A few experimental attempts were deemed successes, but those who made the wrong choices were eliminated, or came close to elimination, after being chewed up by the judges.
This time, however, it′s up to viewers to choose which song would fit each team.
From October 30 to November 5, Mnet has asked viewers to recommend songs for the top 4 through the Superstar K4 webpage. Which songs the four teams will sing will be revealed in the day′s broadcast.
Special duet performances have also been set in line for the top 4. Producers of Superstar K4 have announced that "Roy Kim and Jung Joon Young, DickPunks and Hong Dae Gwang will perform in pairs in special performances."
As Roy Kim and Jung Joon Young especially swept through music site charts with their Super Week duet Becoming Dust, their new collaboration has been gathering much anticipation.
For the online poll that closed on November 8, 480,000, the biggest number of pollers for this season, voted for their favorite contestant. Roy Kim came in first for the first time this season with 27 percent, while Hong Dae Gwang (26 percent), DickPunks (24 percent) and Jung Joon Young (23 percent) closely followed. Because they′re all not that far apart, the quality of their new performances is expected to be the deciding factor in who will be eliminated.
The big final top 2 battle will take place on November 23 in Jamsil.
