The first Verzuz of 2021 will be going back to the original format of the show due to the rising cases of coronavirus once again.
Ashanti and Keyshia Cole was originally scheduled to confront each other in the same room on December 12th, but was canceled after Ashanti reported she had contracted COVID-19. The show has been rescheduled Saturday, January 9th, with Ashanti even confirming she was finally coronavirus-free a few weeks later.
The showdown is still being postponed after news broke out Friday and social media has reacted to the announcement.

Yes! Twitter was lit with those terrible internet connections 😂

Not that simple
You have to ensure that both artists are on internet that can handle the bandwidth of possibly 500K+ live viewers which is why both being in the same room eliminated that.

Keyshia was ready…
She got her shine from it. New/old ears respecting her catalogue. Now, she's getting new opportunities (hopefully).
She don't have to battle anymore.

Stop being all corporate & just do the verzuz for the culture. Us real Keyshia & Ashanti fans just need the music not the glitz & glam. & If it’s from home they’ll show up on time 😂 so we all win.
