Nigerian Idol Concludes Wild Card Show
the continent's most entertaining music reality show, Nigerian Idol,
held the wild card round show to determine the last set of three
finalists that will make it to the finals.
Eight contestants were
handpicked by the judges from the top 30 contestants to take another
chance at the Nigerian Idol Top 12.
Unfortunately, Bimi Adegoke opted
out of the competition for personal reasons, leaving the wild card
contestants as seven.
"It didn't feel like a wild card performance to me at all. The way the contestants sang, their emotions, performances and everything about the show felt like I was watching the grand finale. Really, Nigeria has an
incredible amount of talent and Nigerian Idol appears to have collected the best of them all", said Jeffrey Daniels.
The wild card allows three winners into the Nigerian Idol finals. The
contestant with the highest number of votes will be the first to get
into the final stages of the competition while the judges will select
two other contestants for the final stage. "
The real contest begins on
February 16, where the top 12 contestants will be unveiled. A team
comprising of a music director, voice coach, stylist and others will
work together to craft the Nigerian Idol who can stand on his or her own
amongst other Idol alumni worldwide," said the Project Manager Ope Odugbemi.
Watch Nigerian Idol on Saturday on NTA at 3:00pm, Sound City and ONTV at 7:00pm, Silverbird at 7:30pm, Superscreen at 6:30pm and TVC at
