The exhilarating acts of the top three contestants of the Bigi-sponsored Nigerian Idol on Sunday were trailed by a standing ovation and commendation from the judges as they had double performances each, with applause from the audience in the show which will climax with a winner on 22 May, 2022

The captivating rendition which made the evening show very exciting saw the contestants, Zadok, Banty, and Progress, performing two songs each, one from any time of release and the other on the year they were born, another twist that increased the excitement generated from the evening gig, but a moment of Jordan’s eviction, with low votes from the over 29 million recorded.

With the three contenders left in the battle for the Idol crown, the show has become tensed as each, according to the judges, has the musical prowess to get to the Grand finale that will lead to the clinching of the N100, 000, 000 worth of prizes, including a recording deal from a label, a brand-new Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), cash prizes, and other exciting gifts.

Interestingly, the judges comprising Obi Asika, Dapo Oyebanjo, called D’Banj, and Simisola Bolatito Kosoko, known as Simi, stood while applauding the skills displayed by the contestants, as each of them performed electrifyingly to also get praises from the host, IK Osakioduwa.

The young singer’s second song ‘I Wanna be Down’ by Brandy, which was released in the year 1995 when Banty was born, was incredible according to D’Banj, who stated “I am glad you are among the three contestants, that was great”, while Simi avowed that it was impressive, and Asika, “I love what you have done.”
