The last group of 10 contestants performed last weekend, and only 3 of these acts will make it into the Top 12. Performing love songs as well as old school melodies, the 10 contestants gave their all for an opportunity to win the heart of the judges as well as votes of fans.
“This has been the most prepared group so far,” said an impressed Dede. ‘Though we had some who didn’t meet our expectation, a good number of them deserve a pat on the back,” he added.

Watch the performances here:

                      bukezy 523   Esther 528   duchessItua 524

                   MEL 521   NyroLove 522   obed 525

Since six contestants have booked spots for themselves in the Top 12, and another three will emerge this weekend, totalling nine, it simply means three spots are left to be occupied, Voila; The Wild Card!

All hope is then not lost for other Top 30 contestants who could not amass enough votes to proceed to the Top 12 as The Wild Card show will see lucky ones among them returning to compete for the three slots left in the Top 12 category.

Follow closely to know which contestants will be returning on the Wild Card and be ready to give them maximum support to ensure the best three contestants from the lot make Top 12. Remember, last season’s eventual winner, Moses popularly called ‘Teddy Bear’ made his way to the Top 12 through the Wild Card selection.
