BEVERLY HILLS, May 03, (THEWILL) – The judges of popular TV Show, Nigerian Idol Season 6, have selected 11 contestants who will battle to become the next Nigerian Idol as the show enters the “Theatre Week.”
Of the 68 contestants selected for the Theatre Week, from a series of tests and performances, only 11 scaled through.
The 11 contestants are Faith Mac Ebiama, Comfort Alalade, Emmanuel Elijah, Clinton Franci, Beyonce Ajomiwe, Francis Atela, Dotun Deloye, Faith Onyeje, Akunna Okey, Daniel Ikechi, Kingdom Kroseide.
Contestants were assessed on the strength of their voices and their overall stage performance but most of them were unable to cross the hurdle.
After nine persons were selected for the finals, it was a battle between contestants Daniel and Faith Mac on who would take the last spot into the finals.
It was shocking, however, as both Daniel and Faith Mac made it to the finals, which made the total number of contestants heading the next stage 11 instead of the usual top 10.
This week, the real battle starts as all 11 of them start the final journey to becoming the Nigerian Idol.
