Another episode of the Nigerian Idol Season 6 Auditions aired last night – and it was jam-packed with lots of drama, excitement and undeniable talent! Missed it? Catch up below.
Unearthing diamonds in the rough
This week’s Auditions kicked off on a high note with 27-year-old Chukwuka singing the National Anthem. His performance was unique and smooth, and the judges reached an early consensus on his performance; they really liked it. The three contestants who entered the Audition Room straight after Chukwuka also gave good accounts of themselves and were rewarded with a Golden Ticket each for their efforts.
Next up were remarkable Auditions from 23-year-old Joshua, who earned a standing ovation from Seyi Shay, and Kingdom who got a hug from DJ Sose and left Seyi Shay teary-eyed. The highlight of the night came from the youngest contestants; 18-year-old Comfort whose soulful performance earned her an extra ‘yes’ from Obi Asika, as well as 16-year-old Beyonce Ajomiwe, who like the American superstar, possesses a star power the judges could spot from a mile away.
There were a couple of not-so-great performances as well. 19-year-old student Onyinyechi in particular stood out among them. Onyinyechi quit her job right before the Auditions but unfortunately fell short of the judges’ standards. After her performance, she was advised to take up vocal lessons if she wants to pursue a career in music. Her constant pleas after being rejected, however, caused all three judges to walk off the set – and she had to be escorted out by security.
Onyinyechi’s memorable performance was closely followed by Miriam’s, who had been encouraged by her friends and family to compete. Her comical performance was well below par and left the judges far from impressed. But wait… there’s more!
