While nine contestants have successfully secured spots on the live show, the final spot for the tenth contestant is yet to be decided. Viewers now have the opportunity to vote and determine who is left between Japh Kenti and Lammy and join the live show lineup.

The second contestant in the top 10 was Mira Clear, who had dreamed of making it to the Nigerian Idol live shows. She performed the Bob Marley and the Wailers song, ‘No Woman No Cry’, and secured a spot.

David Garland not only impressed the judges by successfully rocking a pink suit, but his excellent solo performance of Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Going On’ earned him a top 10 stop.

As the selection process continued, only seven spots remained, and many talented hopefuls found their dreams of making the top 10 cut short when their journey ended abruptly. The moments were heartbreaking. Contestants like platinum ticket winner Mikki and others like Tari, Sapphire Whinnas, Teddy, Alfred Greatness and many others reluctantly bid farewell to the show.

The positive streak continued with Lady Ruth, Stevie, who left her teaching career in search of success in the music industry, Maio, who gave a performance that earned her a standing ovation from Ric Hassani, Gracia and Jennifer Igomu, who topped a cake birthday from the judges but also a well-deserved pass to the top 10.

Each of them wowed the judges with their voices and performances, earning them a spot on the live show.

Chima, a platinum ticket winner determined to overcome the previous season’s disappointments, also made the top 10. The judges were impressed by his performance of Giveon’s Stuck on You, and Chima secured a coveted spot in the top 10, a step closer to your dreams. She had redeemed herself after failing to make the top 10 last season.


Unfortunately, we can’t say the same for other contestants. The Nigerian Idol season 9 journey is over for platinum ticket winner Japheth. Due to the not so good performances of him, Dakor, Victor Annie, JayB and Sammie Voice.

The battle for the final spot fell between Japh Kenti and Lammy. Japh performed Let Me Love You by Mario, while Lammy performed Teni’s Case like never before. Both contestants tried to prove that they had what it took to be the last contestant on the top 10 list. With only one slot left, the decision is now left in the hands of the show’s viewers.
