The last battle for the Nigerian Idol season 2 crown sponsored by etisalat Nigeria was fought on stage this week between two giants who emerged finalists in this year`s Music TV Reality Show. The two finalists are Mercy Chinwo and Joe Blue. They sang their last songs of the competition that will fetch them the crown if the votes favour them this week. Both of them sang three songs each. The first they chose for themselves, the second was chosen for them by their Music director and the third was a Nigerian song that they chose for themselves. The studio was filled to it`s capacity with some friends, family members and well wishers of both contestants putting on the T shirts of their contestants and some carrying placards that displayed the name of their favourite contestant. The tension for the audience was high as they wanted to watch the two finalists perform. No sooner than expected, the show started with Joe Blue. The people who had been expecting the show to start screemed as Joe Blue mounted the stage. Joe Blue`s first song was Whitney Houston`s `ONE MOMENT IN TIME` no doubt, he did his best. Jeffrey Daniels, who is one of the Nigerian Idol Judges in his comment after Joe`s first performance said he started well but later lost the key but no matter what, Joe is a creative and entertaining performer he said. Mercy then took the stage and the crowd started shouting Mercy! Mercy!! Mercy!!! And immidiately Mercy started singing some people started appaulding, and as she got into the middle of the song some stood up to dance and some screemed, calling her name. She sang Withney Houston`s `I LOOK TO YOU`. Joe`s second song was `REHAB` by AMY WINESTONE and his third song was `IFEOMA ` by Felix Liberty. He did the songs well. Mercy`s second song was `ONE THING` by AMERIE and her third was P Square`s ` CHOP MY MONEY` which she did to the satisfaction of the studio audience. The results will be announced next week and the big question is who goes home with the one hundred thousand dollars prize, the SUV Jeep and the recording contract? Will it be Mercy or Joe Blue? The voters will decide that and Alexander Forbes the reliable company that collates the results will unveil the winner to us. The second winner will go home with 1.5 million Nigerian Naira which is about Ten thousand US dollars while the third place winner(Stephen Onochie) will go home with One Million Naira Picture above is Joe doing `IFEOMA` by Felix Liberty
