At the 31-minute time stamp, the viewers rose to 13K on the dot.

Patrice started the evening by telling Alison that she is her idol, and Alison, a veteran entertainer, gave Patrice her praise as well, saying that she got envious on more than one occasion when heard a Patrice track and thought, I wish I had that song.

The rapport was very respectful and viewers got much background on the tracks.

After Round 5 when Alison dropped 'Faluma', Patrice asked, "How am I even gonna compete with that?" Difficult as it was, Patrice replied with one of her career-making tracks 'Sweet Fuh Days'. But the people in the comments gave Patrice Round 7 hands down.

Deejay Puffy backed Alison Hinds while Patrice Roberts was supported by DJ Agent B from Trinidad and Tobago.

By 8:38 pm, viewers had reached 15K and surpassed 16.3K at 8:53 pm when Round 8 kicked off.
