Kandi explains how Darian and Lauryn's personalities ended up surprising her.

Kwame did a great job making them both over. Darian looked great, I loved his new look. He gave him that edge that he needed.

And Lauryn, she looked good, but, you know, we tried to give her a little bit more edge with her look because, you know, she looked so young before. We wanted to make her look a little bit closer to her age. So with that, of course, we wanted to give her high heels. But on show day...

That was not the best thing to do. But thank God, she's a professional.  She just jumped up and kept moving like nothing even happened, nothing was wrong. She kept singing, she sang her heart out, and I loved it.

Darian on the other hand, he should have killed the choreography. Especially at the breakdown. He didn't do that.

So in the end I decided to go with Lauryn. I feel like she's talented, and I feel like, I felt like she brought it.
