THE much anticipated Earth, Wind & Fire vs. the Isley Brothers VERZUZ took place on Sunday, April 4.
The groundbreaking Easter edition saw Steve Harvey and D-Nice host the epic battle between the music legends.
Who won the Verzuz battle?
The Verzuz battle was won by The Isley Brothers.
As usual with Versus battles, there was no official winner – it's up to the public to decide.
However, Billboard has reported that the Isley brothers finished the night as the People's Champ.
The media brand said: "Ronald Isley just has that inextinguishable star power that makes him transfixing whenever he's on the screen — and the voice that'd make him an icon even if he wasn't one of the most stylish dudes to ever put on a suit and shades."
Indeed, Ronald immediately impressed when he stepped out in a black and white floor-length fur coat.
One fan tweeted: "The Isley Brothers hands down won this battle but this verzuz was by far my favorite".
