Following the hilarious scenes at the Verzuz pre-show in Los Angeles, CA, on Thursday, June 23, which featured Sammie, Pleasure P, Bobby Valentino, and Ray J, there was a long wait due to Mario and Omarion’s tardiness. As a result, DeRay Davis entertained the crowd by playing music, demonstrating his rap skills, and telling jokes.
In contrast to the pre-show, this Verzuz was impeccable, despite Omarion’s screechy singing voice, overload of dancing, and Mario’s vulgar language. Mario began the performance by bringing to the stage three men posing as members of Omarion’s former R&B group B2K. Their movements indicated that they were mocking a viral video of Omarion performing a funny dance at a concert.
As the concert progressed, the singer introduced his brother, O’Ryan, the DJ. Suddenly, O’Ryan pulled out slices of watermelon for him and his brother to use as props to demonstrate the act of performing sexual acts on women. Furthermore, Omarion sang “Bria’s Interlude” by Drake, featuring himself as they continued to enjoy the watermelon. As soon as he finished a portion of the fruit, he handed it to an amazed woman in the audience.
Omarion’s watermelon moment was, however, a surprise to Mario. “That’s y’all king? Eating watermelon on a f**king Verzuz stage, my n**ga, ” he said.
Mario and Omarion continued to throw jabs at each other throughout the concert. However, there were no hard feelings between them. ” I need to change my clothes now. Let me cover up,” Mario said. Omarion responded, ” yeah, too many burritos.”
Verzuz Battle Songs – Mario and Omarion
In addition, Omarion opened his performance with his famous song “Touch” from 2005.
Then, Mario took the stage to perform his 2002 hit single, “Just a Friend.”
As Omarion continued to sing his hit single “O,” R&B singer Tank appeared on stage. There was great excitement in the crowd, and more people began recording the event on their mobile phones.
Moreover, Mario performed another hit single from 2002, titled “Braid My Hair,” wearing a Versace shirt made of gold and black.
Toward the show’s end, Omarion and Mario performed their biggest hits, “Ice Box” and “Let Me Love You.”
