Fresh off their electrifying debut and their guerrilla-style flash mob last week, the Nigerian Idol top 12 contestants took to the stage on Sunday, 17th February, and performed for the first time in a competition for votes. Haven put up an electrifying debut, the question of the moment was: would the contestants live up to their hype?
This week featured the contestants performing hits from the last two years. While there were some ups and downs, the Idol hopefuls had a great night all in all as they took to the bigger, brighter Nigerian Idol stage. The strongest crowd-pleasing performance of the night belonged to none other than Jay Feel, whose weak vocal performance was overshadowed by his domineering stage presence. Danny Angus changed his look, ditching the accountant for a more urban feel as he took to the stage, to the delight of the in-studio audience.
Rapper Illbliss was the guest judge for the evening, and while he gave thoughtful critiques to many of the contestants, he was largely positive about the performances that he saw throughout the show. It was not all hearts and flowers for the contestants however, and more than one contestant took a beating from the judges when it came to their vocal performances.
It is now up to the audience at home to decide who they want to see stick around for the top 10. Who will they save? The power to decide the fate of the contestant lies in the audience’s hands, so vote by texting the number of your favourite contestant to 33680, from any network. You can also vote for a contestant by dialling his/her number of any using an Etisalat line.
