The excitement at the indoor sports hall of the University of Lagos was palpable. After coming tops in the uni+concert poll the live show was filmed in the University of Lagos.
The contestants on probation this week must have been hoping for pardon again this week,like it was given last week,but that was not to be.
They had to take us on a musical journey singing their songs from last week. Tenacious Emmanuel kicked off with a much better performance of Michael Bolton’s ‘When I get back on my feet’, closely followed by sweet Zaliha doing Adele’s ‘Rolling in the deep’. Aziga did Lionel Richie’s ‘Stuck on you’ and the judges felt it was a vast improvement on his previous performance.
The Big man Isaac sang ‘Water Runs Dry’ by Boyz II Men, pretty Ethel wowed everyone Toni Braxton’s ‘How could an Angel break my heart’. Lastly for the evening was Princess singing Whitney Houston’s ‘Greatest Love.
After the performances, the result of voting was that Ethel again won the hearts of the viewers, Judges saved Isaac to his relief, Faculty freed Princess. Emmanuel, Zaliha and Aziga were left to the contestants not on probation to determine their fate in the competition.
At the end of the day, Emmanuel had the highest votes from them, leaving Zaliha and Aziga eliminated. With the sad exit of these budding stars, tomorrow will treat us to an evening of Urban Contemporary songs after which another set of contestants will be facing probation.
