Clinton’s adventure in this season’s Nigerian Idol came to an end last night as the other eight contestants — Daniel, Comfort, Faith Jason, Akunna, Francis, Emmanuel, Kingdom, and Beyonce – made it to the Top 8 stage. Show host IK Osakioduwa delivered the results with the usual suspense, leaving Clinton and Beyonce as the final two contestants on stage. Beyonce was eventually announced as the final contestant to go to the next round, while Clinton was eliminated.
To coincide with this week’s theme of ‘Naija hits,’ the Top 8 contestants performed songs by their chosen Nigerian superstars while dressed in colorful costumes.
1. Daniel Performance
Daniel took the stage first, performing a lovely rendition of Brymo’s Good Morning. Seyi Shay said that he was finally coming out of his shell after seeing his performance.
2. Comfort Performance
Next was Comfort, who performed Simi’s Duduke. Her colourful outfit and pink braids coupled with an exciting performance delighted the judges who commented on how far she has come from being shy on her first Audition, to dominating the stage.
3. Faith Performance
Last night, Faith Jason ditched his folksy tunes for highlife. His rendition of Awele by Flavor made Seyi Shay remark that he could do no wrong and Obi Asika agreed that he brought his performance home.
4. Akunna Performance
Akunna’s version of ”Loving Your Way” by Seyi Shay left the judges speechless. Seyi Shay was dumbfounded, and DJ Sose mentioned that he preferred Akunna’s version to the original.
5. Francis Performance
Francis also took on another Flavour song, Ada Ada. According to him, he had performed the song before as a backup singer with a band. But this time, he was ready to shine. DJ Sose was impressed with how he managed to keep his voice distinct.
6. Emmanuel Performance
Emmanuel's performance of For You by Teni featuring Davido was exhilarating. According to Obi Asika, he was one of the best performers he had seen in or out of the show.
7. Kingdom Performance
However, not all the contestants wowed the judges. Kingdom’s rendition of Davido’s Aye didn’t quite cut it for the judges. They commented that the song choice wasn’t right for him and that this performance was mediocre compared to his previous outings.
8. Beyonce Performance
The last performance for the night was Beyonce who gave her own spin to Seyi Shay’s classic, Right Now. Again, the judges were left stunned by her performance. Obi Asika commented that her growth has been phenomenal, and she was proving her doubters wrong. Seyi Shay added that she had never seen the song performed like that.
