It’s down to the final 2 – Joe Blue and Mercy.
So who will win tonight? Well, that has been decided by your votes and we will find out the verdict soon.
Who are you rooting for?
Name: Joe Anthony Ekpo
Bio: Joe Anthony Ekpo (514) best known as Joe Blue was most notable for his peculiar sense of style in season 1, now he’s back to take it past that. The judges were so impressed with him that they asked him to do 2 other songs after his rendition of Lionel Richie’s ‘Hello’ and that got him a golden ticket. Joe Blue says he’s doing this for his dad—his biggest fan—who passed away a fortnight after his eviction in season 1. He believes he embodies the entire package of a Nigerian Idol which he says is evident in his style, vocal strength and personality. He aims to become a Blues artiste.

Name: Chinwo Nnenda Mercy
Bio: Mecinda is a prospective student of linguistics at the University of Port Harcourt. This lover of music and indigene of Ikwere in Rivers state says she’s on Nigerian Idol to make a difference and to encourage the talented youths in Nigeria to never give up on their dreams. Some of her musical influences include, Asa, Omawunmi, Whitney Houston and Alicia Keys. She likes sincerity and dislikes the opposite. Mecinda says she’s in it to win it.

    Mercy’s femmine talent of cool voice is what she is using,if you go to churches n other places…you find out that girls alwayz have this nice voice…90percent of girls have that voice, so i dnt see how its mercy…but joe blue a guy who has such a voice is a miracle! Cus 30percent of guys cnt sing with a gud voice bc God did nt make it so….So i really think JOE BLUE should have it…UP JOE BLUE!!!!!

  • timi April 8, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    joe blue has that quirky personality that you see in all great artiste. he is the clear winner to any trained talent hunter. The effeminate personality is actually his unique selling poin,t but whats up with charly boy kissing his hand?

    Mercy is extremely talented, great stage presence. Joe’s stage craft is phenomenal as well. Even if he doesnt make it as a singer, he would do well in creating performances for artistes’ concerts.
