The four contestants left in the season 2 of the Nigerian Idol show sponsored by etisalat Nigeria, are, Mercy Chinwo, Najite El-David, Stephen Onochie and Joe Blue. They performed two foreign songs each this week. Joe Blue opened the show with the song FINE TO RAIN by Adele and his second song was REHAB by late Amy Winehouse. He did fantastically well expecially in Rehab that he got the standing Ovation of the audience. Charly Boy described him again as Hurricane and Tsunami Blue and openly explained that the reason he loves Joe is because of the Charly Boy spirit in him. Without being asked, he explained the Charly Boy spirit himself. According to Charly Boy, Joe Blue contested for Idol last year but got nowhere, this year he contested and was booted out but since the judges had the power to save contestants they felt were good, he was saved and since then he`s been doing great. I want to believe that`s the Charly Boy spirit. Nagite was next in the show with the track No One by Aliciakeys and her second choice of song was Rihanna`s Umbrella. Najite gave her best but the winner of West African Idol Timi Dakolo who performed in the day`s show before sitting with the others judges as the day`s guest judge was not too satisfied with her rap in her umbrella song. The next person to perform was Stephen Onochie. He sang two songs too. The first was WHEN A WOMAN LOVES by R. Kelly and the second was OH MY GOSH by Usher. Before Stephen started singing, the crowd had started appaulding him and chanting his name. Steve went on and he did not disappoint his fans. Dakolo, praised Steve`s vocals and Jeffrey Daniels observed that Steve was bigger and better than his second choice of song which Jeff beleives his old schooled Mercy`s first song was Beyonce`s Halo and her second song was Amerie`s One thing. Mercy gave her best that the audience gave her both a clapping and a standing ovation after her wonderful performance. The guest artiste of the day and the winner of West African Idol, Timi Dakolo who was one of the day`s judges was impressed by Mercy`s performance that he openly requested for Mercy`s friendship. Charly Boy said that the stage is Mercy`s home and that she didn`t need any dancer to dance for her. The contestants actually used dancers in their second song. Charly Boy ended with the statement that you know I told you that you will be in the final two and you know what that means.if we have to go by Charly`s word`s, then Mercy is already in the Top two. But last week`s result has proven that the Judges and the studio audience have no say. The voters have the final say. The judges over rated Mercy and Joe last week but when the result was released, Najite and Steven came first and second respectively. Obviously they are all stars but sadly one person must leave. Who will that person be? Picture above shows Joe Blue doing late Amy Winehouse`s `REHAB`
