On last night’s episode of Nigerian Idol Season 7, contestants came in excited to showcase their talents and hopefully snag a Golden Ticket to take them to the next round of the competition. Being the last day of Auditions, the contestants came in ready to prove to the Judges why they should be on the show.
The first Audition of the night was from 27-year-old Kenneth, a contortionist and flexibility coach. He showed the Judges just how flexible he is and gave a fantastic rendition of Beyonce's 'Halo'. D'banj loved his flexibility and could not wait to see him in the next round. He got two ’Yeses’ from Toolz and D'banj, securing himself a spot at Theatre Week.
After this, contestants like Joy, Rachael, Victory, Chizoba, Collins, Ayobami, Joy, Ikechukwu, Christopher, Grace, Ceejay, Millionaire, Ochiora, David Operah delivered their Auditions beautifully and snagged their spots at Theatre Week after getting their Golden Tickets from the Judges.
On the other hand, some not-so-lucky contestants did not do justice to their Auditions for the night. For instance, 26-year-old Tachey On Richi couldn't wow the Judges with his song. Likewise, Omotoyosi, Houston, Joel, and Romanus failed to impress the Judges and ultimately went home without Golden Tickets.
Super talented musician and first-runner up of 2007’s West African Idols, Omawumi also joined Obi Asika and D'banj as a Judge. Omawumi was excited to be a Judge because she could relate to most contestants, having been a part of this process.
One of the contestants who stood out for the night was 25-year-old Saviour, who gave a beautiful rendition of Adele's 'One and Only’. He made the song his own with his beautiful guitar and vocal coordination. Omawumi said his voice and vocal range was great, and of course, we'll be seeing him at Theatre Week because he snagged three ‘Yeses’ from the Judges.
After all the exciting performances for the night, 30 contestants made it to Theatre Week.
