Filipino-American Chrisha Choo, also known as Kriesha Tiu, has been eliminated from KPOP Star 6.
For the third round of auditions, Chrisha was paired with fellow contestant Lee Soo Min. They were pitted against Kim Hyerim and Min Ga Rin.
The episode aired on Monday, January 2, 2017.
Chrisha and Soo Min performed a mash-up of "Blood Sweat & Tears" by BTS and "Playing With Fire" by BLACKPINK.
However, their performance fell short based on the comments by the judges—JYP's Park Jin Young, YG's Yang Hyunsuk, and Antenna Music's Yeo Hee Yeol.
Yang Hyun Suk noted that their performance was a bit off-key and told the contestants, "The biggest flaw was your key. I'm not sure if it's because you had to move around, but both of you were slightly off key. This could've been a much better performance. That's what I thought."
The YG executive also felt that their song choice was meant for a group with a lot more members.
He pointed out, "Another thing, I felt that this song has too much for two people to perform. It could've been a better performance if there's a few more people on stage with you.
"I noticed the lack of harmony on this collaboration compared to your individual performances. I was really hoping for you to do well."
Hyun Suk also noticed how Chrisha missed a few words from BlackPink's song and told her, "I think that made you nervous and went downhill from there."
He ended his comment saying, "I see that you prepared a lot but it feel like you prepared too much.”
J.Y. Park added "Concept is the most important thing for girl groups. The concept has to fit the members. I don't think either of you fit the swag or hip-hop genre. It doesn't match you. Both of you are typical pop singers."
This reminded me how important production is in girl groups and it feels like two talents failed to show their potential today."
He added, "Regardless of how good you are, the song has to fit the person."
"The moment your performance ended. I marveled at how impressive you were. I kept saying that."
Ultimately, the judges chose Hyerim and Ga Rin along with Soo Min to move forward to the next round.
Towards the end of the episode, Chrisha said she will still continue pursuing her dream to become a singer in South Korea.
She said, "Even if it's tough and I'm not good enough sometimes, I'm going to continue singing."
