2. Truth Rhapsody
3. Serenity Jigsaw
4. Shaun Jharls
5. Lavene Juliesse

First Up Was Mr. Truth Rhapsody,and he really set the flow of the crowd to a smooth mellow mood,i think the ladies was loving his smooth tone of his voice,and loving the soft ballad music that set his piece on fire!

Our Second Poet to grace the stage was Ms. Serenity Jigsaw,and what amazing piece she spoke. We was in love with her flow,words,and her tone of her voice. We enjoy the important words she spoke,and was happy to have her here!

After That Mr Dolla Dinzeo Grace The SLam Stage and recite a very amazing piece,and who known what a great poet he was,he really hype the crowd,and everyone snapped until their fingers were sore. It was nice to hear such amazing male poet as amazing as him.

Next To Grace The Stage Was Mr Shaun Jharls,and i don”t think the guests were ready for such a powerful poet such as himself. He was very amazing,i was standing up in real life enjoying every word,loving the flow,and what amazing delivery he gave,the judges was in awe…and he really entertained us.

Our Next Poet and Last One For Round 1 To Grace The Stage Was What’s Radio Co-CEO Lavene Juliesse,and i don’t think anyone was expecting her to get on stage and recite her new piece titled “My Inner Ho”,which shock a lot of people,even the judges. Wow it was very intense,but show a different side of her,and a side a lot of people can agree with and respect.It was time for the judges to pick our Top 3 Poets to move on to Round 2,and it was very Hard..but we finally came to a decision and the Top 3 poets Were:1. Serenity Jigsaw
2. Shaun Jharls
3. Dolla Dinzeo

Round 2 Was a Big Intense,but very enjoyable,they all step it up,and performed pieces that had everyone standing on their feet.With Each poet being very equally liked by the judges,we had a tied with Shaun and Dolla For The Last & Final Round,so they all moved on to round 3. And Again what amazing piece each 3 of them did!..As the guest & Host waited as we tally up the scores,and announced our winners. Lady T (Tray Ferrentino) recited a very new piece of hers called “Finding Me”,and what amazing piece that was.
