As the Season 8 of the Nigerian Idol Live Show competition gets lit up, 10 contestants have electrified the three judges with their topmost performances, which have moved them into the upper spots in the Live Show edition of the Nigerian Idol Season 8, slated to commence today.
The final solo of the theater week kicked off with a brilliant performance by Henry Savy, who ended up being the first contestant to secure a place in the top 10 category of the show.
His ‘Para’ performance of Davido literally pierced the hearts of Simi, D’banj, and Obi Asika, which became the sensation of the moment.
17-year-old Constance also stole the show as she dazzled the audience with ‘Positions’ by Ariana Grande while Precious Mac thrilled and filled the theater with singer Simi’s Ayo.

After brilliant performances and praiseworthy stage control of ‘No Shaking’ by 2baba, ‘Catch me if you can’ by Adekunle Gold, ‘About damn time’ by Lizzo, ‘Under the Influence’ by Chris Brown, ‘Karma’ by Summer Walker, and ‘Flowers’ by Miley Cyrus—Victory, Daniel Ose, Goodness, Abraham, Reigny and Quest who sang one after the other, bounced into the next phase with grand style. The last man standing—Chizo, narrowly escaped this time around, unlike last season when he was sent off at a crucial moment.
Meanwhile, nineteen (19) contenders were tactfully eliminated from the moving train as it could only accommodate the 10 best acts this time around.
Ahead of the show, Rite Foods Limited, the maker of Bigi soft drinks that powered the show, promised to enliven contestants throughout the competition with its Bigi brand, with 13 unique variants poised to connect with its consumers through the platform.
The Assistant Brand Manager, Bigi, Ms Aransiola Biola, said the support is to help discover and nurture talent across the country and the African continent.
“We are excited to sponsor Nigerian Idol for three consecutive years, Seasons 6 and 7, due to our love for promoting the entertainment industry and to support the next generation of musical talents,” she stated.
Aransiola added, “Of course, this show is a great opportunity for contestants to showcase what they have as they unlock new opportunities in the music industry.”
