Billboard Hot 100

While the love of your craft, a fandom, or views usually define the success of an artist, the Billboard charts have somehow also become a standard for solidifying your status as a global superstar. In line with this, the boys at LOUD had one week to put together a cover of a song that ranked on the number 1 spot of the Billboard charts.
Team JYP took the stage first with their own version of Billie Eilish’s monster hit, “Bad Guy”.

Amaru, Keiju, Youn Dong Yeon, Lee Dong Hyeon, Lee Gye Hun, Zo Doohyun, and Yoon Min took a popular Western pop song and transformed it into something totally new. There’s no denying that the strong vocal skills of this team made the performance even more powerful.
With their masterful dance moves, distinct charisma, and innovative style, the JYP LOUD boys are a whole new genre.

Cheon Jun Hyeok, Oh Sung Jun, Choi Tae Hun, Woo Kyung Jun, Jang Hyun Soo, Eun Hwi, Lee Ye Dam, Tanaka Koki, and Daniel Jikal took a Latina pop hit and kicked it up a notch by speeding it up in the EDM direction.

School Life Concept

The second round prompted the candidates to throw on their high school uniforms! Team JYP unleashed their playful side with intricate school bus and classroom props during their performance of Stray Kids’ “School Life”.
Afterwards, Team P NATION took a swing at BTS’s legendary debut song, “No More Dream”.

Bring the Girls (Music) Out

For the girl group mission, the team of JYP deviated from the usual to showcase their sweet and whimsical sides by performing a revamped version of Red Velvet’s “Peek-A-Boo”.

Rendering the final performance of the night, Team P NATION opted to give the devil a run for his money with Girls Generation’s massive hit, “Run Devil Run”. The big surprise was that the candidates rocked some fiery vampire costumes, instead of devil-themed outfits.

The Elimination

The latest episode of LOUD concluded with P NATION winning all 3 rounds and with 2 candidates being eliminated from the running; namely, Youn Dong Yeon and Lee Ye Dam.
When it came down to vote-based elimination, Lee Dong Hyeon came out with the lowest fan votes. Luckily, Park Jin Young used his one and only wild card to save him.
