High.D’s performance was so incredibly moving, I liked her before in a casual way but now I’m officially a fan!

Yeonjung winning was pretty predictable but I’m still a big fan of hers so I’m not too bothered lol. I loved her cover of Fine and her final song - the moment the high note came I knew she won lol.

I’m so glad Siyeon made it to the final round. In her Overdose performance was fantastic! The bluesy song she chose was a risk and tbh I think she knew she wasn’t going to win since Yeonjung chose a ballad Koreans traditionally prefer, but her whole career with DC is taking risks and not doing the popular thing. So it was very fitting for her and I hope she won over some new fans

This was my favorite round - every performance delivered, no boring songs imo. I think they all proved why they made it to the next round :)

so proud of Siyeon for showing three different vocal styles in this competition and getting her name and Dreamcatcher's name out there right before their comeback!

For who I’d like to compete - Gowoon from Berry Good! She is one of the first girl group artists to captivate me with this song (Taeha too! But she left) but Berry Good isn’t doing too hot (but then again neither is Sonamoo)

Pristin’s vocal line too - if they were still around :/

Gugudan has a lot of great singers, and Momoland’s vocal line too

strongly agree with gowoon from berry good. more people need to know about her vocals and how good berry good is. i still wish that wasn't their group name though :/

Also since I got into this group with this song, I think Yechan and SeeA would do well, they really impressed me so far

Hmm...Siyeon fumbled at the end with that song choice. Not that it was the song but instead that arrangement. Like we saw with the Overdose performance, they can change it up. You are at the end stretch, bring out the big guns. Don’t play attempt Rhythm and Blues (which has so many vocal heavy songs I don’t know why they keep playing the genre like this). Give the audience DRAMATICS. I thought Yeonjung was coasting with her song choices: Wind Glower started well But was solid, and Fine definitely was the weaker of the trio battle which isn’t saying its bad...just I thought the other two were much stronger. and the last one sort of rectified that. I think Yeonjung had the better final performance while Siyeon definitely gave the better run overall.

Other ladies
Haeyoon gave a performance that would have gotten her good press on Immortal Song 2. Unfortunately without the back up dancers and choreo to fill out the stage. Her energy was perfect though. Like if IS2 still had that reach I would hope she gets a vacancy spot on the show. I can see why she lost. Still a good performance that was borderline great.

DaKyung could have easily taken that win as well. What she had in her favor is a style that seemed fully realized. Like she wasn’t trying to give you runs because she is not that kind of girl. Also controversial opinion: I think she might be the best of them up there.

High D should have taken that win. Her performance of Fate I thought was one of the most emotive on the show. Had she stepped off that podium and walked up to the audience she might have gotten it for the dramatics alone.

Sooyeon was fine. Not much to be said other than I think the song missed the desired effect.

[Spoiler (click to open)]Not to be a downer but I definitely think a lot of these ladies need to remove themselves occasionally from the idol mindset because a lot Of performance were way too similar from the music to the styling to the singing. Slow pacing start with a piano or guitar, Hush/whispered singing meant to symbolize sadness, orchestra build and big moments, flurry of slightly misplaced ad libs and last attempt high notes.
