SMTM 8 Ep 2

Before we Start SMTM 8 Ep 2, A recap of first episode, SMTM 8 have several new rules.

  • Bring back 1st round acapella with 2000 contestant
  • 2 producer crew with 4 producer each instead of 4 teams
  • Revival round for the one eliminated in the 1st round


Revival Round

Previous episode were a heart breaker for anyone who have their favs eliminated. But no worry! SMTM have a new rule this season : Revival round on the 1st episode. Usually the revival round were save into later round whre contestant can come back by do challenge/cypher. But this Season the contestant can try again if they’re eliminated with other producers to minimize subjectivity (which bound to happen in the 1st round)

New rules : 8 producer pass instead of 4

Fire round is an iconic round that always been since SMTM 3. Rapper have 60 seconds to impress the producers. Different from previous SMTM seasons, you only need to impress 1 producer instead of a producer team. It give more chance for rapper to pass, or is it ??
