    Nija has to copy evryth’ & rtry to westernise it! Nigieria’s got talent???? what next. No originality. wake up & smell the coffee, we r africans & need to accept that. Loved the big girl “orobo”. Judges cannot tell a good act even if it was inscribed on their forehead. Its about interest, originality and effort. She surely captured the audience & could move to her own ORIGINAL song & not one westernised & diluted. KISS – Keep it Simple …….

    If we wanted to see western acts, we won’t watch Nigeria’s got talent, so please keep it Nigerian & stop frustrating our hard working talents like “orobo”. Loved her to bits!!!! she can move menh!! Bring her back!!!!!! Tonight the acrobat with metal plates and “Orobo” did it for me. Class acts.

    this show freaks me out. i think this show is not supposed to be all about naija acts , i am pissed when after the contestant have put up a nice act and i hear the judges saying ‘we expected you to do something more nigerian. also, remember that jerk ‘mattew joseph’ who went there and said he was going to dance to oliver twist, wow that guy suck as well as the show

    Kate Henshaw should be scaked … she is unprofessional, not funny, a bully and has no class, loud mouthed, will discourage contestants from coming and very tacky.
    She actually thinks she is cute ……….. very nasty character
