Hallo Guys! Happy Monday! So yesterday, the first group of Idols performed. As we know, the 24 finalists were grouped into 4 sets with 6 people performing every Sunday for 4 weeks beginning yesterday.. Here's how it went down:

1. Ibitoru Green - 'Like A Prayer' by Madonna: This girl is something else.... She worked the stage man! Her voice was wonderful and her all white appearance was catchy! She performed a very good rendition of the song but I really can't tell if she'll make Top 10...I hope so though cos I'd like to see more of her.

2. Uche Ume - 'Angel of Mine' by Monica: His performance reminded me a lot of one of those Bishop T.D Jakes' songs where he sorta runs a commentary in the background (think his version of the storm is over)... Anyway, he gave a pretty good performance...

3. Ekanem Esu - 'How Do I Live' by LeAnn Rimes: Okay, nice voice but I am sorry to say I don't think she'll make Top 10... There's quite a lot of competition! Plus, I distinctly remember her singing, 'How do hI hever, hever survhive.....' maybe it was all in my ears, but I swear the H Factor was present and it didn't do her any good!

4. Omawunmi Megbele - 'That Don't Impress Me Much' by Shania Twain: Now this girl was summmmmin! She was smoking for real and she had such an attitude! Girlfriend was hoooooot! Everyone in my house was screaming after she finished her performance.. I am positive that she'll make top 10 if the voters know what they're doing...You go girl!

5. Timi Dakolo - 'Must Have Been Love' by Roxette: When I heard his song, I went, 'Why did you pick that song???' But during and after his performance, I saw that he was the MAN! He nailed the song with his own version... I think he'll go far in the competition and I hope he does a Luther while he's at it!
6. Lara George - 'Its All Coming Back' by Celine Dion: No playa hatin' but I felt she didn't have the X-Factor... Her performance to me was ok, but to be fair, maybe I expected a lot more from her as per she's already been in the industry...I bet that would contribute positively towards her being in the top 10 though...

If you wanna watch the songs, Just go here!

Random Word
Yesterday, I slept off solving cross-word puzzles and woke up with the word Paraphernalia on my mind this morning. Problem was, I couldn't spell it.. How many times does this happen, I mean you know a word, know its meaning, you see it it books and just glide past the word but then you later realize you never could spell the word without a lot of thought?

That's all fellaz... Hit me back with your feedback! I'm out...

Is it true that the other judges keep trying to imitate Dan Foster who in turn is trying to imitate both Randy and Simon at the same time?

I haven't been able to see any of the videos. MNet's bleeding site keeps telling me to install Internet Explorer before I can watch them. Fat chance...

My take is...
Dan Foster is trying soooo hard to be a Nigerian and also inadvertently playing Randy,
Dede Mabiaku is trying too D@mn hard to be Simon and Nana is playing Paula...
My 2 kobo o!

I agree Dede is trying too hard to be the Mr Nasty of West African Idol.

Meanwhile, re 'Random Word' etc, I know what you mean. For some silly reason I often find myself having to think twice before I write the word 'their'. It's not difficult, I know, but I tend to put the i before the e (if I don't think about it first).

Nyemoni said...

Their eh? I also had a problem with their when I was younger... I had to make a conscious effort to spell the word correctly... there are so many wors that I used to mix up similarly...
