    I am a viewer from Sierra Leone, my winner for this week episode should have been Daniel Ubido. This guy performance and voice control was outstanding and strongly believe that he looses his chance in the poor decision of the 101 judges. He was striped off his winning title. Anyway, he has showcase his talent and he is good in my opinion.

    Wish Jackson can face Job as his first opponent and see true talent… the space…….lol
