After weeks of breath-taking battles, Nigeria’s leading music talent show has definitely taken another interesting twist as the competition has now moved to the live show.
The live broadcast which began on Sunday June 26, 2016 rever berated fun and excitement that thrilled viewers from beginning to the end.
Judges/coaches Waje, TuFace, Timi Dakolo and Patoranking said “despite being tensed, we are very excited about the live shows because all the contestants have worked hard. We look forward to see what they bring on stage.”TuFaceIdibia, leader of #TeamTubaba further described the live shows as a ‘goosebumps moment.’
In the live show, each contestant is expected to perform while the team’s judge can only “save” one member from the team. The other contestants in the team are expected to vie for the votes of viewers to avoid being eliminated from the competition. The contestant that has the most vote stays on the show.
Leading the live show contest were contestants from #TeamWaje. Khemmie performed “Happy” by Pharrell Williams; Promise did a great job to Flavour’s “Golibe”; while Shammahsang “I’d rather go blind” by Eta James and Beyonce; and Michael’s performance of Luther Vandross’ “…” definitely saved him as the grateful contestant knelt before Waje’s throne to show his excitement.
Next was #TeamTimi whose contestants Joe Blue, Grace Mac, Dewe and Vicky all performed wonderfully well. However, Vicky was saved and the other contestants are canvassing for votes by viewers.
#TeamPatoranking’s Prime sang “Fine China” by Chris Brown; Chike thrilled the audience with Darey Art-Alade’s “Not the girl”; Linda 1nneka sang to Sia’s “Chandelier” and Sylvia Charles performed toBeyonce’s “Single ladies”. The round ended with Chike being saved.
#TeamTubaba’s contestants definitely put up a fascinating show as their performances were stellar. Gabriel Song was outstanding with “Tonight” by John Legend. Viveeyan’s rendition of Asa’s “Subway” was beautiful. Vocal powerhouse, Emem’s “Lay Me Down” by Sam Smith stilled the crowd and Brenda’s performance was nothing but amazing with her soulful rendition of “All about the bass”. Brenda got saved.
Michael, Vicky, Chike and Brenda were saved in episode 12 of The Voice Nigeria. All other contestants are vying for the votes of viewers. Viewers can vote by texting the contestants number to 33120. Contestants can also vote via WeChat.
