‘Immortal Song 2′ introduces new rules
The new contestants - Jay Park, Huh Gak, and Super Junior’s Kyuhyun- will be facing a different style of judging alongside the other contestants. The old setup had two singers compete against each other, with the audience voting on the more superior performance. The singer who gained the most votes would move onto the next round to face off against another contestant.
Instead of this method, the new modified rules will split the contestants into pairs; from these pairs, three winners will emerge and the audience must choose a grand winner from this ‘top 3′.
A show representative stated, “We have decided to follow this setup for the first round. The second round, where the contestants sing covers of legendary songs, will go on as usual. The first round will be used to let the idol singers freely use the stage to their individual satisfaction in order to show off their talent.”
The episode with modified rules will be broadcast on August 6th, with the teams consisting of: Jay Park/Moon Hee Jun, Kyuhyun/Son Ho Young, Huh Gak/Noise’s Hong Jong Koo, MBLAQ’s G.O/Kan Mi Yeon, SISTAR’s Hyorin/DJ D.O.C, 4minute’s Jiyoon/Koo Jun Yup (DJ KOO).
