The mall show live final competition will be composed of two rounds: the first round is the “I can sing it better – Battle Round” and the second round is the “Solo and Final Round”.

One day before the live finals, the top 16 contestants will be divided into eight (8) groups to which two contestants will be paired to sing the same song. So on the “I can sing it better – Battle Round” of the live finals, two contestants battle head-to-head onstage to prove that they can really sing the song better than the other. Even though the contestants are singing in pairs, they are judged individually on their performance.
