Xolani opened the show when he performed the popular ‘Hallelujah’ song by Rufus Wainright. Lisa was up next with her rendition of Bryan Adams’ ‘Everything I do. Jesse took us down memory lane to the Aladdin days as he sang ‘A Whole New World’ by Peebo Bryson. Beebee Bassey took to the stage to give her rendition of the song used as a soundtrack in The Pretenders movie, ‘I’ll Stand by You.
Antwon on the other hand performed John Legend’s ‘Who did that to you. Eye-D was next in line to show her talent and she did so with her rendition of Diana Ross’ ‘He Lives in Me’. The next performance was by Elvis Jay as he took to the stage with Aerosmith’s ‘I don’t want to miss a thing’ and finally, Evelle sang ‘Smile’ by Natalie Cole, the soundtrack for the movie Modern Times.
Having watched all eight contestants put up a brilliant performance, viewers now have the final say as they decide who stays in the competition through their votes. However, one question that will be on the minds of the contestants is who will remain in the competition?
