It was another fun night, as contestants were fierce stage. Unfortunately, Clement could not perform due an injury he had during rehearsals.
It was all about pop and Urban rock music, as all Project Fame West Africa contestants brought their A-game.
Flourish performed nicely,despite her nervousness, Emeka improved greatly as he performed “Back For Good” Boyz II Men which thrilled the audience.
The Judges commended and acclaimed Ogechukwu who came out on stage to perform Katy Perry’s “Roar”. Sexy, Debbie was not left out, as she gave her best to impress, with “That Don’t Impress Me Much” by Shania Twain.
Taiwo brought up some Akon’s swag, when he performed “Don’t Matter”, Christian also had a lot going on, during his rendition of Neyo’s “Let Me Love You”, while Kofo followed with a “safe finish” performance according to the judges.
However, the faculty promised to work on Melody who didn’t do so well on “Unconditionally” by Katy Perry performance. Shola tried to impress, when he performed Chris Brown’s “Don’t Judge Me”, although, he was urged to stay focused by judge, Bibie Brew.
There was a little disagreement-again, between the Judges and the Faculty on Lasbrey‘s performance of “7 days” by Craig David, while the judges thought it was below average, the faculty agreed he had improved and had worked hard.
Ugo was commended by the faculty on his good vocals, but the judges who also acknowledged his performance of “Numb” by Linkin Park was not so bad, thought he had a lot to learn.
Geoffery‘s rendition of Justin Bieber’s “Baby” was awesome; he danced, he sang and thrilled the crowd, apparently he had already won a few music hearts in the audience. Laami showed the stuff she was made of, as she gave a very focused, economical, thinky and controlled performance, according to the judges, on Pop Princess, Rihanna’s “What Now”
Ruky who had earlier confessed she was in a depressed state, and had been through a lot, gave an emotional finish to Sia’s “Chandelier”, she cried during her performance. The audience cheered very loudly, Judge Adebantu thought it was beautiful, while Uncle Ben acclaimed she gave the song a clinical finish. Yes! She was the highlight of the night!
Tonight, Ugo (18), Debbie(4), Melody(12), Flourish (7) and Lasbrey (11) were placed on probation as the judges thought they could have done better.
Sadly, only two will leave the Project Fame West Africa stage next week Friday.
