  • It was originally stated that Nolan Neal would perform in this episode, but due to Thomas Day withdrawing, he took his spot in Episode 1513, a week before. Broken Roots replaced Thomas.
  • Divas & Drummers of Compton had been speculated as being withdrawn due to one of their members testing positive for COVID-19, therefore it is likely the member recovered and the group was able to compete, although it is known if they did not recover in time to compete the replacement would have been Wesley Williams.
