Going to the season finale, a complex chain of events has unfolded:
The chances of Lyric and Beat's Team Werpa to win the national competition got a boost when they joined forces with former rivals, Prime Belters, led by Jazz, thanks to the persuasion of former Prime Belter member Cadence.
However, the situation got complicated when the financially struggling Lyric found out that the well-off Prime Belters leader Jazz and resident mean girl Melissa are her half siblings.
Meanwhile, Prime Belters coach and the mother of Jazz and Melissa, Viola Espiritu (played by Agot Isidro), is spiteful towards Lyric and is determined to sabotage her.

 Who will win Lyric's heart? Teammate Beat (top) or rival lead Grae (bottom)?

To top it all, Lyric finds herself in the middle of a love triangle with Werpa leader Beat and rival Modern Pop leader Grae. Beat has not confessed his true romantic feelings for Lyric but is eager to do so now after witnessing how persistent Grae is with Lyric.
Will Team Werpa be victorious against Modern Pop? Will Lyric be able to settle her family issues? Who among Beat and Grae will Lyric fall in love with?
