The ongoing Nigerian Idol music reality TV show is currently gathering momentum with the introduction of the Theatre Week with 68 lucky contestants battling it out for a chance to become the winner of the contest.
The theatre week began with group selections. The group selections were much tougher, as contestants had to put in their very best to work with their teammates and still retain their star power.
After the trial, some of the contestants were outstanding and progressed into the next round as they were all paired into groups to see who would showcase real talent, while it was the end of the road for others.
The 68 contestants were grouped according to their voices and trained to perform as a group for the judges. The group stage featured an amazing array of songs from Burna Boy’s Wonderful and Teni’s Billionaire, which got a standing ovation from judge Obi Asika.
At the end of the day, out of the 68 contestants that made it into theatre week, and 39 to the group selection, only 17 contestants progressed to the next round.
