I would rate this episode a 5/5. I would rate this episode 5/5 because it was when one of my most favourite ships came together, and the songs were amazing especially Lucky and River Deep, Mountain High. I was excited to see that the club were finally doing duets. I think all of the members had the right partners they were meant to be with.
