It was gathered that to secure their place in the Top 30, the lucky 100 were placed into groups and required to sing their way through the proverbial clutter in order to shine above the rest. Each having a part to sing in the selected song for each group, which would see some contestants blossom naturally while others will fade into the background of the Nigerian Idol stage.
