  1. Anonymous how wrong you are. Maybe you should say worse attendance at a finals then maybe all would agree. I thought too that Dezrel didn’t really defend his crown but kudos to Ti Black’s and TC Brown. At the end of the show I knew one of them would have been King. I must commend the judges on a job well done.

  2. The judges should have said no one win because the quality and standard was far below ….

  3. They should give him the crown king Charles have in Buckingham palace instead poo f that cheap crown that do not have any diamonds on it it is a fake crown if he is a kind where is his robe of gold and his stage coach of gold like what the so called Royal family has in England

  4. to the people that are singing clock out and never saw a day of work in their life especially yall females, stop singing that song its not for you, nerdy has another song named UNEMPLOYED which best suits yall
