"JOJO" Choi Young-jo | stardust | 18 points-
- 4 audience boots | 4 judge boots

Performed Seventeen's Clap.
He sang some parts a few notes higher than the original notes to showcase his soprano singing voice. The dance accompanying the song was minimalistic and contemporary, to not drive the attention away from his singing. He mostly stuck behind his bandmates, not all that confident in his own dancing. He sang Jun's, seungkwan's, jeonghan's, Joshua's and woozi's parts.

+George:[B] Said the way he carried himself throughout the performance was excellent. He was very charismatic.
+Sungjae:[B] Said his vocal range was impressive and he was easily able to hit the higher notes without making it seem like he was screeching.
+Sora:[N] Noticed slight wavers in his voice. They could simply be because of nerves but it was still there.
+P-Min:[N] His presence on stage was simply charming but P-Min was a bit disappointed by the minimal dancing. He said Youngjo could have done more with the song in terms of dance.
+Lucy:[B] She saw through his shyness and thought the dancing he actually did perform was rather cute. She especially liked his charming yet shy smiles and his passion.
+Chrissy:[B] She did ask him if he wanted to try out rapping but Young-jo just blushed and said he wasn't a rapper.

ICE — Said he had a very individual dance style, however that it didn't always mesh well with the other members'. (N)

Chrissy — Enjoyed the performance. Asked why he chose not to rap, since in 2Night's songs he does occasionally. He answered that he wanted to focus more on singing. (B)

Performed BTS' DNA, danced in the rap parts rather than rapping.

"SOLAR" Moon Dohyun | soloist | 18 points-
- 2 audience boots | 3 judge boots

Performed DEAN's Half Moon.
The performance was an acoustic version of the song that required no track or band playing. He literally sat on a stool, strummed his guitar and sang to his heart's content. In the end, he did his signature move he's practiced since debut days with p.l.a.t.i.n.u.m.
+George:[N] He said he was rather charming and he could practically hear girls swooning in the audience but he was just not what they were looking for. He needed to be livelier to get the crowd going.
+Sungjae:[B] His singing was spot on.
+Sora:[N] She praised his vocal stability but criticized his rather bland stage presence.
+P-Min:[N] Didn't find his act charming at all. Found it too similar to regular street performances.
+Lucy:[B] His performance was unique and unlike the others she had seen. She especially loved his signature kiss. She thought it symbolized his love for singing.
+Chrissy:[B] An automatic boot since he wasn't a rapper.

Performed Seohyun's Don't Say No, to mostly good response from the judges. Minseok and ICE commented that although she followed the choreography well, there wasn't any special feeling behind it. Because she is the main vocalist of a group known for their strong vocals, they asked her if she could sing from another song she had prepared. She then sang Gummy's You Are My Everything, for which she received very positive feedback from both the audience and judges for her technique and vocal color.

↪ found her to have a charming presence and a voice that can fill the stage
↪ told the other judges that her voice was not one to pass up
↪ said that her level of technique is uncommon for an idol
↪ although she needs to work on her dance more, her vocal skill makes up for it
↪ agreed that dance could improve but has potential, moved by vocal performance
↪ was overall impressed with the performances

Kyungsook Hoon | soloist | 12 points-
- 3 audience boots | 4 judge boots

Performed Taemin's MOVE. It was way too out of his comfort zone, especially when he first started. The dancing, even though he practiced hard, wasn't good at all. In the middle of his performance, he stopped, asked to bring out a mic stand and continued the song a bit slower without the unnecessary dance moves.
+George:[B] Noted that it was obvious he had a passion for what he did and complimented the fact that he didn't try to sing for the judges, but he actually kept his focus on the audience and sang for the fans.
+Sungjae:[B] Complimented his vocal technique
+Sora:[B] Also said it was endearing how he kept smiling up at the audience and acknowledging them and also loved his vocal range.
+P-Min:[N] He complimented him on the fact that he tried to dance but said he needed more practice
+Lucy:[N] Said he was good but he wasn't well rounded.
+Chrissy:[B] An automatic boot since he wasn't a rapper.

세븐데이즈W E D N E S D A Y( min chaeyoung, vocalist )

15 pt3 audience boots5 judges boots

Gave an emotional vocal performance of a self-arranged ballad version of g.o.d's "Road" while playing the keyboard. She began to cry toward the end of the song but was able to maintain vocal stability, drawing positive feedback from the vocal judges. There was some discussion in regards to her dating scandal. The performance judges requested to see her dancing ability since she comes from a dance group, for which she performed a segment from one of her own group's songs, I'm Jelly Baby (originally AOA Cream).

JEONG JAEHYUN ;phoenix16 ptsuper boot !

Jaehyun and Eunwoo performed "Destiny" (originally Infinite), their
most popular song when they were a five-piece group. (Jaehyun
sang the parts originally allocated to Sungkyu, Woohyun, and L.
) The
audience enjoyed the powerful dance and distinct sound which
had been the hallmark of Phoenix's performance when they were
at the peak of their popularity, and the duo earned over 90% of the
audience's votes. Jaehyun was moved to tears after the performance,
and said that he was thankful that the audience remembered their
song, and that he was thankful for this new opportunity and would
use it to show an even better side of himself.

commentarydespite being a duo performing a song meant for five people, they were able to fill the stage with their present - george ; impressed by jaehyun's ability to step up and take the role of the main vocalist - sungjae ; hopes to see them do well in the future - sora ; recalled meeting phoenix when they and bocks were both rookie groups, hopes this will be a new chance - minseok ; commented on their perseverance - ice ; mentioned that the phoenix which their band is named after rises with new life from the ashes, and this may be their opportunity to rise to the top once more - chrissy

Ahn Eunwoo | Phoenix | 16 points-
- 6 audience boots | superboot

Performed Infinite's Destiny with the other member of Phoenix, Jaehyun. Eunwoo took, dongwoo's, hoya's, sungyeol's, and sungjong's parts and performed flawlessly. However, he wasn't over the top excellent and didn't do anything that would attract too much attention to himself. He just did what he had to do. After they received a superboot, Eunwoo clutched onto Jaehyun and broke down in tears, thanking everyone.
+George: He enjoyed his performance and his stage flexibility. He wasn't trained onto one spot and was able to move to wherever needed. What he liked best though was his sportsmanship; how he didn't try to hog the spotlight.
+Sungjae: Liked his harmonization in the beginning of the song. Noted how it must have been hard to do alone when they were only a duo but he made it work.
+Sora:Also praised his harmonizing.
+P-Min:Thoroughly enjoyed his dance and his shyness was surprisingly pleasant; it wasn't too fake to attract attention and it wasn't so real that it would be an issue.
+Lucy:Said that even though the song was an old fave, it felt like they had just released it. Everything felt new.
+Chrissy:Enjoyed his rapping and flow and how he handled the other members' parts so well.

JUNGXU ;xtreme xplosion16 pt4 audience4 judge

Drawing attention as soon as they entered the stage, XTREME
XPLOSION arrived at the Unit with flashy outfits. After clarification
that the one in the minidress was, in fact, Xiuman, and yes, a man,
they showcased the performance they'd prepared, "Troublemaker"
by Troublemaker. At a loss for how to react and whether or not this
was just an elaborate joke, the judges requested to see a more
serious dance stage, for which XTREME XPLOSION had prepared,
and performed Girl's Day's "Something", complete with the feathers.

resultsthought that they had brought a unique and entertaining charm - george (boot) ; had a decent, but not exceptional, voice, and couldn't tell if he was taking it seriously - sungjae ; unsure that they were the fit for this show - sora ; thoroughly enjoyed their performance and thought they showed their strength - minseok (boot) ; thought their performance was hilarious and that they clearly had the full package for an idol - ice (boot) ; was thoroughly entertained - chrissy (automatic boot)

"A.M." Chul Bo Yeon | soloist | 17 points-
- 5 audience boots | 5 judge boots

Performed an English cover of HAZE's (EXO's) The Eve. The audience covered up his introduction in a clamor. It was his first time on stage after 3 years since his departure from HAZE. He was asked why he left and he answered truthfully before he continued with his performance. He took on everyone's parts but choreographed his own dance. After he was finished, Chrissy commented on her fascination with his rap in HAZE and asked him to freestyle.
+George:[B] Commented on his ability to move the crowd, even after so long. Hoped the best for him in his new solo career.
+Sungjae:[B] Said it must have been hard to jump back into the game and complimented his color. He needed practice after so long but he was still good.
+Sora:[N] Said he was really rusty and needed more practice. However, still wished him luck
+P-Min:[B] Loved his original dance and his womanizer charm that he had since he was in HAZE.
+Lucy:[B] Even though the song was old, he made it his own and made it original. She was glad he was back on his feet.
+Chrissy:[B] Admitted she was a fan of HAZE but she still rooted for him as a soloist. She said she looks forward to mentoring him

DOHEE // 15 pt + 4 audience boots + 3 judge boots
