Those contestants who are able to make through the auditions are paired by judges to compete with each other. The contestant who has to sing first is chosen by a  toss. He or she sings on screen and sets the target for the second contestant. The second contestant has to sing behind the wall, and if he or she gets more votes than the total of first opponent's votes, the wall rises and the second candidate qualifies to the next round while the while the first contestant is eliminated.
