Okay... So this is my breakdown of perfomances from the last group of six...overall, this group rocked!!! I mean, I was tired of bad perfomances from groups 2 and 3 and wasn't looking forward to anything spectacular from this group, but they blew me away! I mean, they were that good! Baaaack to the topic but first of all, a pix of the group!.....

The first performance was by 27 year old Tony Ighofose from Delta State... He sang More than words by Extreme.. His perfomance was lovely as he was so composed and he acted like he was used to being on the stage.. His voice quality was excellent as well... The judges all gave him a thumbs up and he was a good start to the evening... My vote: I liked him!


The second in line was 19 year old Ogun State indigene- Omodele Fatoki. She sang Love is all around made popular by Wet Wet Wet (The song is not their song..) She had a good perfomance as per she danced her way around the stage but I did not enjoy her version of the song. She did not do it for me as per voice quality. The judges told her she did well, but overall for me, I don't think her perfomance qualifies her to go through to the next round.


The third perfomance was by my very own Sokari Briggs. 27 years old, from Rivers State. I say my own 'cos we are from the same villa if you know what I mean... Hmmn, now my sister did not do very well.... She sang You're still the one by Shania Twain. My take is: she did not hit the notes as she should have though her perfomance was ok. If looks could win the Idols thingy, I'd say she has a very good shot at winning, but Alas! her rendition of the song was not very good and the judges told her as much...Dan commented on her looking great, Nana said she was better from the last round and dede told her not to be shy.. I don't think she deserves to get through to the next round...


Next, we had 21 year old James Brendan from Akwa Ibom. He sang Show me the meaning by the Back Street Boys. His voice and perfomance were above average but I knew he did not give it his all.. I watched his first audition where he sang Reuber Studdards' I need an Angel. I knew he had star quality then and was looking forward to watching him yesterday. He had this laid back approach to his perfomance and it was like he didn't give it his all. The judges told him so too but I think it will be a tough one for him.. I would like to see him go through to the next round.


The fifth perfomance was by 27 year old Joan Ekpai from Cross Rivers State. In the pre-perfomance interview - if I may use the word- she had this r factor going on.... she kept slurring in her speech and I was like, 'this girls R is going to do damage to her singing o!' She sang Show Me Heaven by Maria Mckee. Her perfomance was THE BOMB!!! This girl NAILED the song men! I don't know how to describe it, but I was speechless while I watched her perfomance. She was gracious during her perfomance and her voice! I felt it was Maria Mckee herself singing....I no fit talk abeg.. The judges said the same thing. Nana asked her if she was coming from Heaven, Dan Foster said he closed his eyes during her perfomance and saw Mariah, Whitney and Celine rolled into one and Dede said Na wah for you... I think she was the best of the Night! In fact... I have voted for her already.


The Last perfomance was by 25 year old Temitayo George from Ogun State. She sang Searching my soul by Vonda Shepherd (Theme song for Ally McBeal) She was Okay... She sang and performed okay, but you know how hard it is when a wonderful perfomance is just before yours... It's a bit hard to impress then.... Anyway, Temitayo tried.. she gave a pretty good perfomance but I can't say for sure if she'll get in to the next round.. Remember, popularity also counts and I figure she's a tad popular cos her mum owns and runs the very popular Little Saints Orphanage in Lagos... just a 'lil bit of trivia...


The results for this group will be announced today, so guys please let me know what you think! I'll hit you back with the results tomorrow.. Stay blessed y'all!
