It was all about the ’80s theme this week on Glo Naija Sings!
The first order of business was the dreaded elimination, host Darey announced that Lynn had been voted off the show. After that we went right into the real swing of the show, the top 7 contestants visited the Little Saints Orphanage in Lagos last week and we saw clips from their visit.
Song: Dionne Warwick – That’s What Friends Are For
No one could deny that Vicky looked pretty in her yellow dress accentuated by new hairstyle. Vicky’s performance was shaky for the first few seconds then she quickly picked up the flow and it was a strong performance from that point .It was a sure good performance as it had one audience member screaming – Bellissimo (Italian for lovely)
Song: Billy Ocean – Suddenly
Christian came on stage in a red cap, salmon pants, red waistcoat and a blue shirt to perform Billy Ocean’s Suddenly, it was a good performance. All in all but we were more interested in his outfit than his singing.
Song: Whitney Houston – One Moment in Time
Every one knows it is hard to pull a Whitney Houston number but Oni really makes it all so easy, it was really a nice performance as she dazzled in her 80’s inspired white pumps paired with a pink dress.
Song: Michael Jackson – I’ll Be There
Mattade brought back old feelings when he performed Michael Jackson’s I’ll Be There, it was a good performance but the audience didn’t seem to feel it as much as we did, some of the comments were a little harsh.
Song: Lionel Richie – All Night Long
Tee Songz made us want to listen to him all night long as he performed confidently and made the song a whole lot of fun. We totally loved his movement on stage – Tee Songz rocked!
Song: Etta James – At Last
The classic Etta James single “At Last” was performed by AmOK and it kept everyone puzzled as to why she was singing a song released in 1961 when this week’s focus was the 80’s theme. “At Last” is a very difficult song to conquer. Lynn tried her best but fell a little short.
Song: Kool & The Gang – Ladies Night
Oh yes it’s ladies night, And the feeling’s right, Oh yes it’s ladies night, Oh what a night! That tune keeps playing in my head as Precious performed the funky dancing tune by Kool & The Gang, although his vocals were a bit off key. A blunt audience member said he didn’t enjoy performance at all.
Sound Sultan was this week’s guest judge and he said he was wowed by 3 of the contestants and said Tee Songz to him was the best but the not so lucky Precious didn’t find much favor from Sound Sultan calling him the worst of the night.
Nigeria’s Lady of songs Onyeka said Vicky performed the song with so much sincerity, conviction & empathy, Oni really surprised everyone with her one moment in time rendition and was really passionate about the song, Tee Songz was called cute and she cautioned AmOK to watch the flat notes and also pointed out that Precious & Christian need something from inside to make the song come out better. Mattade got the axe this week from Onyeka as she called him the worst as she could not recognize the song.
It seems as though Oni was definitely the star of the night. Olisa commended Oni and endorsed her as the best.Vicky got a nod from Olisa as he said her performance was good, but Precious got a big NO! from Olisa saying everything about his performance was wrong and he forgot the lyrics.
