Last weekend we came to 10 contestants from the sixteen who made it into the Academy; and this week another contestant leaves the competition as the competition gets stiffer. Week in week out, the remaining contestants’ efforts get tougher in their quest to be that extraordinary superstar.
This much was obvious in the previous Nomination Show which had the contestants entertaining us all with rich reggae tunes. Despite the brilliant performances, the viewers’ votes would still determine the most impressive contestant.
The contestants’ group performance (a medley of Boyz 2 MEN and New Edition hit tracks) opened the evening, and as always, it was a breathtaking blend of vocal prowess and impressive expressions all rolled into one.
Then came the moment of truth, and for the week, the contestants with the least number of votes turned out to be Ugo, Flourish, Daniella, and Emeka sadly. But without much ado, they each stepped on stage again to perform their songs from the previous Nomination Show for a chance to remain in the competition.
Just before the Judges, Faculty, and contestants save one each, delectable Niniola, ( Season 6 3rd runner-up) lighted up the stage with her personal composition ‘Ibadi’. As always, it was heart-warming to see that an alumna of the Academy is doing remarkably well in the music industry.
Coming back to the business of the night, the Judges gracefully saved Emeka, the Faculty saved Ugo, which left the contestants with a choice to either save Daniella or Flourish. In the end, they took sides with Daniella and this marked the end of Flourish’s sojourn in the competition.
She had words of appreciation for the Judges, Faculty and everyone who supported and made her stay in the Academy worthwhile. Flourish bowed out of the competition singing Tubaba’s ‘Raindrops’.
