Omarion and Mario Verzuz debut at 6 PM PST/9 PM EST live from Los Angeles. If you can’t attend the concert, fans can watch on Triller, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Verzuz has done an incredible job of promoting this battle online.
They had Deray in the studio instigating both artists about what one supposedly said about the other about their music and dance moves. Mario even said, “you can’t spell Omarion without Mario.” Whoever is responsible for that line needs a raise.
In the upcoming episode the two R&B legends go head to head in a battle that will be full of hits, leaving fans wondering who will take home the crown.
The battle between the former B2K lead singer and the “Just a Friend” singer will take place at The Novo in Los Angeles on Thursday, June 23 at 9 p.m. EST. The event is open to the public and fans can purchase tickets here.
A bonus battle is also slated to happen that same night, featuring Ray J and Bobby V versus Pleasure P and Sammie.
Mario even pulled up on Omarion asking questions about who CONVINCED him to this Verzuz and that can’t do the battle without B2K.
As a millennial, I miss this type of corny but funny AF advertising because it made me excited for the end product – in this case, an Omarion and Mario Verzuz. Fans react by tweeting about who they think will win the Verzuz and what songs they’re looking forward to hearing. A few are not even here for the music – they’re just excited for the eye candy.
