The first episode of the Live shows of #TheVoiceNigeria kicked off with much glitz and glamour with all the contestants ready to give their best to avoid going on probation. The night was filled with interesting and electrifying performances but some of the contestants were found wanting and placed on probation. This means they are up for possible eviction at the live shows next week.
The contestants up for possible eviction are Emem from #Team2baba despite giving an electrifying performance of Sam Smith’s “Lay me Down”, Gabriel Songs who sang John Legends’ “Tonight” and Viveeyan who sang Asa’s “Subway”. This means that only Brenda is safe from eviction amongst the members of #Team2baba.
At the end of the night, Michael was saved from possible eviction while Khemmie who did a rendition of ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams and Shammah who performed Etta James and Beyonce’s ‘I’d Rather Go Blind’ were placed on probation. Promise was the last member of #TeamWaje to be placed on probation as she adjudged his performance of ‘Golibe’ by Flavour N’abania as being below par.
Prime from #TeamPatoranking performed ‘Fine China’ by Chris Brown but it wasn’t enough to save him a safe spot as he was joined by Linda 1nneka who sang ‘Chandelier’ by Sia and Sylvia Charles who gave a somewhat less inspiring performance of ‘single ladies’ by Beyonce. Chike got the nod for the safe spot from #TeamPatoranking.
#TeamTimi had Vicky getting the safe spot after Grace Mac’s performance of Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’ and Joe Blue’s rendition of Amy Winehouse’s ‘Rehab’ was adjudged as being below bar by Timi. The duo of Grace Mac and Joe Blue were also joined in the probation zone by Dewe who sang ‘It’s A Man’s World’ by James Brown.
To that end, Brenda is the only safe one from #Team2baba, Michael from #TeamWaje, Chike from #TeamPatoranking and Vicky from #TeamTimi. All the other contestants still have an opportunity of being saved by votes which may be cast by viewers.
