Nigerian Idol Season 8: Top 10 Contestants Emerge As Theatre Week Ends


10 contestants have been selected to feature in the live show of the MultiChoice-organized Nigeria Idol, season eight. The top ten contestants emerged after a fierce battle, starting with thousands of hopefuls that subsequently dwindled to hundreds before getting to the last ten.

The final judgment of Theatre Week divided the best singers in Nigeria from others and revealed which contestants have what it takes to perform live for the audience’s votes next Sunday. It was a make-or-break moment! Amidst anticipation and nerves, 29 contestants took the stage individually, striving to secure their place to compete in the top 10.

After surviving the golden ticket, first theatre week, and duet rounds, the final 29 contestants received their life-changing songs for their auditions. These talented individuals diligently learned the lyrics, adapted the music to their style, and poured their hearts and souls into delivering the performances of their lives.

First up was Savvy Henry who confidently took to the stage, determined to surpass the disappointments of the previous season. His solo audition seemed promising, as his heart raced with anticipation. The judges were impressed, and Savvy secured a coveted spot in the top 10, a step closer to his dreams. He had redeemed himself after failing to make the top 10 last season.

Next was 17-year-old Constance, who had delivered a stellar performance during her solo audition the previous week with Ariana Grande’s hit song, “Positions,” and faced the judges with nerves and excitement. Her talent shone through once again, securing her a well-deserved spot among the top 10 contenders.

Arite, brimming with confidence, stepped forward to face the judges. While her performance received praise from Dbanj, her singing fell short of expectations. Unfortunately, she did not make the top 10.

As the selection process continued, only eight spots remained, and many talented artists had their dreams to make the top 10 cut short as their journey abruptly ended. The moments were heartbreaking. Contestants like Daniel Adam, Soul Tunes, Sir Danny, and many others accepted defeat and reluctantly bid the show farewell.

The top 10 contestants who have earned their place in the live show through talent, perseverance, and sheer determination are Savvy Henry, Constance, Precious Mac, Victory, Ose Daniel, Blossom, Abraham, Quest, Chisom, and Goodness.

The live shows will begin on Sunday, May 28, and it will be up to the audience to decide who makes it to each week of the competition and who eventually becomes the Nigerian Idol. Season 8 broadcasts on all Africa Magic Channels – Showcase, Urban, and Family. The excitement reaches new heights with a dedicated Nigerian Idol pop-up channel (DStv ch. 199). Fans can enjoy exclusive “behind-the-stage” conversations and catch up on all the auditions.
