After the elimination of Favour from #ProjectFame9.0, the remaining contestants knew they had to bring their A-game if they had any hopes of remaining in the competition.
The second nomination show kicked off with the hosts Joseph Benjamin and Bolanle Olukanni giving a rundown of what happened at the elimination show. With 15 contestants remaining in the running for top position in #ProjectFame9.0, they were all ready to showcase their vocal prowess not only for the entertainment of the audience but to also ensure their survival in the academy.
The night’s performances was taken from the pop music genres and all the contestants brought a new and different angle to the songs. The first person to step on stage for the night was Mirabel who sang This Is What You Came For by Calvin Harris and Rihanna. She was closely followed by Dapo who gave a good account of himself as he sang Sorry by Justin Bieber.
Gabriel was next on stage and he sang Shawn Mendes‘ Treat You Better, just as Yusuph and Solomon sang One Dance by Drake and Sugar by Maroon 5 respectively.
Benjamin gave a good rendition of If I Ever Fall In Love by Pentatonix and Jason Derulo while Winner sang Bad Blood by Taylor Swift. Okiemute performed Beyoncé’s Hold Up before Oluchi took the stage to sing Send My Love by Adele.
Elizabeth got to work with Work by Rihanna, just as Eli gave a good account of himself with Charlie Puth’s One Call Away. Steve performed Chris Brown’s With You, Kitay sang Cold Water by Major Lazer while the last contestant on stage, Pere performed Nick Jonas’ Jealous.
The crowd obviously enjoyed the performances as they cheered the contestants but the judges however were not satisfied with some of them and faulted the understanding of the song materials by some of the contestants, emotions and their stage presence.
As a result of this, five of the contestants: Mirabel, Yusuph, Solomon , Winner and Pere were placed on probation. This means that the five contestants will be banking on the viewers votes, judges, the faculty, their fellow contestants and most importantly, themselves if they hope to remain in the competition.
