It is another night of pure excitement for the audience and viewers but not so much fun for the contestants as they had to sing their best to avoid being on probation on the very first nomination show. The contestants have
already spent 7 Days in the MTN Project Fame Academy. Tonight was the very first Nomination show, and so much was expected from the contestants but Ayoka (1), Oluchi (15), Leonard (11), Simon (17) and Roland (16) were not lucky enough to escape this trap. All the contestants looking confident and ready to impress the Judges took to the stage one after the other.
Johnny was the first to perform ‘If I could turn back the hands time’ by R Kelly, the Judges were expecting more from Johnny they think he needs to modify the song but
the faculty thought otherwise, they felt the performance was good and excellent.
Leonard performed ‘Runaway’ by Styl Plus, the Judges did not see confidence in him he was advised to be more focused and the Faculty agreed saying they will work
more with him. Henry on his part rendered ‘Unchained Melody’ by Righteous Brother, the Judges noticed he was been too careful and trying to be perfect and advised
him to open up more. David took another song outside of his comfort zone
when he performed ‘Knock on wood’ by Eddie Floyd. The Judges saw improvement in him compared to the last performance. However, he still struggles with the song-
forgetting his lyrics they added that he needs to connect with his song and be passionate on stage. Ayoka stepped on stage to perform ‘Waiting to Exhale’
by Whitney Houston. The Judges commented on her strong voice but encouraged her to be careful with stressing the voice beyond limits which the Faculty also concurred to. Oluchi did not so impress the judges with ‘Fire To the Rain’ by Adele, and the faculty promised to work with her. Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’ was performed
by Immaculate. The judges commended her for being able to move and sing at the same time. She brought so much pride to the Faculty with her magnetic performance. Jimoh took to the stage all looking dapper as he performed ‘You Raised me Up’ by West Life, the Judges loved his performance and expect something better in his next performance. Simon hit the stage with ‘Crazy’ by KC & JOJO, the Judges expected him to do more with his good voice, and the Faculty promised to work more on him. Olawale performed ‘Against all Odds’ by Phil Collins, the Judges applauded his confidence and the originality in the rendition of the song and the Faculty likened him to a good combo of Chidinma and Tolu of season 3. Roland did a good one with Michael Bolton’s ‘Soul Provider’ but he did not impress the judges enough. Margaret sang her heart out with Alicia Keys’ ‘Girl on Fire’. The Judges commended her on good communication skill in her performance.
Niniola took the stage to perform ‘I’ll be there’ by Mariah Carey but the Judges felt she could have done better. But Uncle Ben disagreed with them completely, commending the performance as well above average. The show continued with Blessing singing Rapture by Anita Baker, Gbemisola rendered ‘Subway’ by Asa. Omolayo rounded off with a passionate rendition of ‘Aye Ole by Infinity’. Both the judges and faculty were impressed beyond words and applauded his performance.
So, after all said and done Ayoka(1), Oluchi(15), Simon (17), Rowland(16) and Leonard(11) landed in probation.
