Abraham, Reigny evicted from Bigi-sponsored Nigerian Idol Season 8

Abraham, Reigny evicted from Bigi-sponsored Nigerian Idol Season 8

The billboard week performance of the Nigerian Idol Season 8 has seen two contestants eliminated from the competition after receiving the lowest votes from the audiences of the musical show.

A week into the Live Show phase of the music competition, the power was conceded to the spectators to decide who stays or goes off the show. To that effect, Abraham and Reigny became the first two-paired contestants to be served a quit notice from the show.

Responding to the eviction, Abraham simply said “All is well” while Reigny stated that her heart was vague but regardless “It’s music on from here”.

Performing ‘It’s plenty’ by Burnaboy, Henry Savy made an exceptional stage which came with some uncanny verve; however, the judges felt the concentrated energy was a bit low compared to the owner of the song’s vibes. “It’s amazing. You killed it but the energy is low” opined Simi. Obi also felt he needed to do something different and extra considering the uniqueness of his voice.

Fantastic Precious Mac wowed the judges and audience with her ‘Overdose’ performance of Marvin Records. The judges all agreed that her delivery was unique and excellent. “I like the way you carry and own the song” Simi praised her. Obi and D’Banj believed her swag was on point while the audiences were left captivated.

Looking all angelic, the youngest, and a dynamic singer, Constance who clocked 18-years old a few days ago, left an undiluted impression with the judges and audience, after performing ‘Alone’ by Burnaboy. She got an ‘incredible look and great singing’ remark from Obi Asika, ‘Superstar’ from D’Banj and ‘interesting sound, keep taking the lessons’ from Simi.

As for D’Banj, he approved that the entertainment card was played really well by Ose.
