Nigerian Idol: Excitement as 68 contestants head to theatre week
After four weeks of excitement, the auditions for Nigerian Idol season 6 came to an end last Sunday night with 14 contestants receiving golden tickets to advance to the Theatre round.
One of the performances that stood out from last night’s auditions was from Winning, a 22-year-old producer, who performed a self-written song much to the admiration of the audience and judges. Another outstanding performer was Faith Jason. Faith’s rendition of All Time Low by Jon Bellion was so good that Seyi Shay stood up to personally hand him a golden ticket and named him one of her favourites this season.
However, some contestants had a night to forget, as they were unable to impress the judges. Mufidat’s performance fell short of the judges’ standard; she was visibly nervous throughout her performance. Virginia, a professional singer was also let down by her voice.
Over the past four weeks, viewers from across Africa have witnessed many talented Nigerians auditioned to earn a place in the next round of the singing competition. Now, 68 of these talents will proceed to the theatre week tomorrow, where they will battle each other to prove they have what it takes to make it to the next stage for the live shows.
Nigerian Idol continues next week Sunday, April 25 on Africa Magic Showcase (DStv ch 151) and Africa Magic Urban (DStv ch 153) and Africa Magic Family (DStv ch 154 & GOtv ch 2) from 7 pm.
