Here’s why you are going to want to start watching ‘Verzuz’ on Instagram Live right now

While the performances are so much fun to watch, what really makes “Verzuz” so entertaining is the chit chat between the stars, as well as the comment section on Instagram Live. It’s pretty surreal to see comments pop in from First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah, Mariah Carey and Viola Davis, but they were watching the same Instagram Live stream as everyone else. We don’t know who will be up next for a “Verzuz” battle, but here’s to hoping we’ll get to witness another epic night.
