The five contestants left in the Nigeria Idol show, sponsored by etisalat Nigeria, did their very best on stage to stay in the competition. The contestants sang two Nigerian songs each starting with Mercy Chinwo who Jeffrey Daniels, one of Nigerian Idol season 2 Judges openly said will be amongst the final two. Mercy sang the song titled`Igwe` by mid nite crew. Mercy did justice to the song with good dancing skills and stage performance. Her second song was P Square`s `I GO CHOP YOUR MONEY` which she all did very well that the guest artiste of the day, Sir Shina Peters, commended her and also said that the song she sang was a song which portrayed her real person and that she`ll definately like to swindle men. Other Judges, Jeffrey Daniels, Yinka Davies and Charly Boy, gave it all up for mercy Mercy`s performance.
The next to perform was Honey Adum. He performed Tuface`s African Queen and Dbanji`s `FALL IN LOVE`. He didn`t do badly either. But from the way Charly Boy, one of the Judges spoke, he might not make it to the final four. What did Charly Boy say, Joe Blue is a Tsunami, Mercy is good, I see Najite to be in the top three that was after he had consulted with his sets of rings and he told Stephen Onochie that he doesn`t like the looks on his face on eviction days and that he loves his smiles. He ended up by saying you will be in the top four, I will see you here next week. It`s a red card for Honey Adum, but the audience have the final say because they are the voters and not the Judges.
The third contestant to perform on stage was loverboy Stephen Onochie as he is called. He sang two songs the first was `EGO` by Djinee and the second was `SWEET MOTHER` by Nico Mbanga. Stephen did so well that the audience gave him a standing ovation. He had his parents in the audience and his choice of sweet mother was a dedication to his mother who while singing the song, he embraced.
After Stephen came Najite. She sang two songs too. `MOSE ORIRE` by IK Dairo and `IF YOU ASK ME` by Omawunmi. According to Najite`s interview with Tiwa Savage on of the anchor`s of Nigerian Idol season 2 show, the choice of the first song she sang `MOSE ORIRE` is a thanksgiving to God who has seen her thus far. After doing her best in the stage, Charly Boy, predicted that she`ll be in the final three.
Joe blue performed two songs namely `OLORI OKO` by a group called infinity and `FEVER`. Joe thrilled the audience and the Judges that one of the guest Judges, Sir Shina Peters predicted that in a couple of years from now, Joe Blue and himself will meet on stage. Charly Boy, told Joe`s mother who was present in the show that he did like to adopt joe blue. The theatre arts undergraduate of the University of Lagos is no doubt a bundle of talent. Voting has started. Who will be evicted this week? Voters are advised to vote wisely. Above is Mercy Chinwo
