The Nigerian Idol reality show is getting hotter by the day. And it’s not for the faint-hearted. Only last weekend on TV stations across the country, the first three to make the Top 10 list emerged after a breathtaking performance by all the contestants.

 And like that of the first set of its Top 30 contestants, the judges, Jeffery Daniel, Yinka Davis and Charly Boy were joined on the bench by Samklef, a household name in music production. 
 “You can see that Nigerian Idol is heating up by the reactions of the audience to these talented performers,” says Tiwa Medubi, Idol’s Project Manager. “The show will only get better obviously; the Top 10 is coming up very soon and fans and viewers of the show will have the time of their lives, watching these extremely talented young people blossom into full fledged stars.”

 First on the list of performers was Jemiriye, who gave a strong rendition of Monica’s hit Angel of Mine. She was followed by Joe Blue whose rendition of Michael Bolton’s classic, How Am I supposed To Live Without You earned him a standing ovation from the judges and audience.  Next was CJ, who got the audience singing along with him a mellow and sweet version of Bill Wither song, Lean on Me.

 Lynda Giami escaped from her shell to give an animated version of Another Day in Paradise by Phil Collins. The suave Houston Grey brought John Legend to the Idol stage with a superb version of the hit, Ordinary People. With How Will I know, Ifeoma delivered a smooth performance of the popular Whitney Houston classic.
 However, it was the sassy Ibinabo Romeo, who increased the temperature with her dramatic show of Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive. The temperature also turned a notch higher as G Circuit gave an electrically charged performance of Usher’s There Goes My Baby.

 The smooth-voiced Honey delivered an unbeatable take on Lionel Richie’s Stuck On You that got Yinka Davies close to tears and the audience giving an extended ovation. Finally, the stunning Tega closed the show with an emotionally charged performance of Mary J Blige’s Be Without You.
 With the second batch of the Top 30 concluded, the audience and fans finally have the chance to vote in their favourite contestants to go into the Top 10. Already, Chinedu, Nikki and Najite from the first batch are the first trio to make it into the Top 10. The voting line closes every Thursday and Friday after which viewers will find out the next contestants to make it into the Top 10.
