The World's Best Season 1: Fans sense foul play with Liliac Band losing out to Vonnie Lopez and The High Praise Choir
Though fans are excited to see their favorite contestants perform on Wednesday, currently there is a sense of foul play with regards to the decision of the fan-favorite vote
'The World's Best' aired February 3 after Super Bowl LIII and is off to a good start after it gained attention from fans and viewers. Possibly because the series premiered right after the Super Bowl LIII or there might be other reasons, but one thing is for sure, fans love it and they are getting their much-needed dose of entertainment.
'The World's Best' is CBS' new reality TV competition series that showcases some of the best acts from all over the world. The show is judged by Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles, and Faith Hill. They are joined by 50 other experts known as the "Wall of the World," who will help them judge the contestants.
With two episodes done and dusted to date, fans and viewers got to witness contestants showcase their talent. Now down to the top 24 contestants, Wednesday will see them divided into four groups and compete in a face-off. The four groups are: Solo Music, Group Music, Solo Variety, and Group Variety. Though fans are excited to see their favorite contestants perform on Wednesday, currently there is a sense of foul play with regards to the decision of the fan-favorite vote.
Over the weekend, the series revealed Vonnie Lopez and The High Praise Choir won the fan-favorite vote. But fans sense foul play in the decision after 'The World's Best' social media post about the Liliac Band received more comments than the one about Vonnie Lopez and The High Praise Choir.
Some fans connected it back to their audition performances, Liliac Band received 91/100 one point lesser than Vonnie Lopez and The High Praise Choir. This backlash towards the series comes after the series misspelled the name of the Liliac Band in the custom hashtag.
"With all respect to Vonnie, exactly how is that possible when #TWBLiliac had more than double the votes? First you choose not show their full performance then they get screwed out of their votes. Something just doesn't seem right," wrote one fan. While another added, "They are fabulous and need more air time than the 10 seconds given to them last night! I need to see the whole performance. And if everyone else would have, Liliac would have taken Fan Favorite hands down."

Though this is the first season of 'The World's Best' fans are not letting anything slip by. "First y’all cut their performance short on tv, then they get WAY more comments than the rest of the acts yet don’t win fan favorite? and now you misspell their band name for the hashtag? how much shadier can you guys get???" said a fan.
There is no evidence the series is doing this on purpose. But fans are keeping an eye on Wednesday's episode, and whether a full performance of Liliac Band will be aired. 'The World's Best' airs on CBS. Check your local listings for more information.
