Xyla seemed slightly shocked all of a sudden. “Why are you here?”
Stanley didn’t even tell her in advance.
“You’re here. That’s why I’m here.” A gentle smile appeared on his face.
Their faces were still up on the screen, the sound of screaming drowned out everything else in the stadium.
People commented on the live stream channel.
“The way he looks at her melts my heart! It’s so sweet!”
“This is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen! They are a match made in heaven! I love them!”
“I believe in love once more!”
Xyla’s smile widened, and she reached out to hold Stanley’s hand. Their fingers intertwined tightly together.
Soon, the upbeat tempo of the song ‘Reborn’ began to play.
Josh Batton held the microphone in his hand while he sang and led four mentors on the show to the center of the stage.
“Oh, this mortal’s body is destined to perish for a new ‘me’ to be born. Once the scars heal, all mysteries will be solved.”
“I declare my beauty to the world. I’ll get past all this craziness and be reborn, get past all this craziness and be reborn, get past all this craziness and be reborn…”
Josh sang, and the crowd cheered wildly for him.
Josh had on the intricate makeup that all his fans loved. The front half of his hair was slightly curled, and there were strands of silver highlighted hair.
He was wearing a glossy, black formal coat on the outside and a black t-shirt on the inside, paired with black, skin-tight jeans. His good looks captivated everyone’s attention.
The sound of clapping and cheering drowned out everything else.
After his performance, the other mentors walked off the stage. However, Josh was still standing in the center of the stage.
It sounded as if the audience were unwilling to stop cheering.
Josh placed his right index finger gently on his lips with a smile as a signal for everyone to be quiet.
The screen director immediately zoomed in the camera on him. Everyone in the audience became silent right away.
Josh was able to catch sight of Xyla off-stage quickly.
When their eyes met, Xyla instantly showed him her thumb.
Josh started smiling. “Alright… Up next, let us welcome our ten talented candidates to perform. That aside, we will activate the voting channel as soon as they get on stage.”
“The voting channel will automatically close after their performance is over. Make sure all of you vote in time…” Josh added.
After Josh finished speaking, he turned off the microphone and walked off the stage. He returned to the mentors’ seats where the other mentors were.
Very soon, the stage turned pitch black again…
After around ten seconds, all the lights on stage were turned on. The intro to ‘Off-Peak’ began playing.
Morty Wayne and Jay Corben led the rest of the candidates to the center of the stage while they all sang.
All ten were wearing white shirts and black pants with the same design, and they had on the same, plain makeup.
However, since they each had different physical appearances, they each gave a different vibe to the audience.
Jay looked like a bad boy, and he gave off the vibe of a wolf. On the contrary, Morty looked like a good kid, and he gave off the vibe of a gentle puppy. Some of the other group members looked fresh, while others seemed lazy or casual.
“If you’re going to practice martial arts, you’ve got to bear the pain normal people can’t,” Morty sang.
“The tea our master likes is called Oolong, and the clothes he likes are from Country Z,” Jay sang.
Even from only singing two lines of lyrics, everyone in the audience clapped and cheered for the two of them, and the noise drowned out everything else…
Jay never took his eyes off Morty while Morty was singing.
