Problems with the audio, especially at the end of Riley, interrupted the confrontation between the two legendary producers, which attracted over 400,000 viewers. It seemed that Riley was ready for a concert, unlike Babyface, who was sitting in a studio.

It could have been Riley’s downfall because everyone in the audience heard the reading and the echo each time it was her turn to play a song.
The comments were full of jokes about the age of the two producers – Babyface is 62 and Riley is 53 – and their inability to use Instagram.
Comedian Lil Duval wrote on his Instagram that Riley should only use her iPhone to record instead of trying to organize a concert.

Radio presenter Charlamagne, the god, made a few jokes and posted a meme from two old men to a computer that said it was Riley and his team in the studio. Singer Toni Braxton tweeted live during the debacle, saying at one point that watching the live stream was “like watching old people with jitterbug phones”.
Comedian Kevin Fredericks has released a parody of Riley’s performance that focuses on Riley’s reading and preparing a dance routine.
The battle should start at 9 p.m., but at 10 p.m. It was obvious the audio had to be corrected, so they stopped and told the audience to come back at 10:30 p.m.
But shortly after 10:30 p.m., Babyface suggested the best way to postpone the battle.
“Tonight was really special … it’s just that we are moving this thing and doing it at a time when there are no technical difficulties and everyone can hear the music as it should be heard,” said Babyface on Instagram. Video.
Riley later described it on Instagram as “just like a boxing match, something is wrong, we have to do it again”.
Babyface announced the battle on his birthday last week.
