Introduced as a “DJ Battle” on Instagram in March 2020, the platform reached tens of millions of people looking for entertainment at the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The artist picks 20 songs each to battle it out against each other and the fans choose their winner. Now, the competition is produced, on stage with performances from the contestants, making it, even more, a fantastic experience.
