IDOLS WA UPDATE

Hey Everyone,
What’s good? How was your weekend? Hope it was good.
So I already planned some huge blog post for today but I just couldn’t find time to put everything together so that will be up tomorrow.
In the meantime, lets check out Idols WA (Group 2) from last nite.
They are currently going through the Round of 24.
The top 2 from each group of 6 go through to the Final 10.
At that point, the judges pick 2 wildcards to join them in the Round of 10.
So far Omawumi and Timi are through to the Top 10.
You can also read some inteteresting articles on Ibitoru (She's been through A LOT + I didnt know she has 2 daughters - ages 14 & 8...Wow, I hope she makes it back) and Lara

Anyways, check out the performances and let us know what to think!

Jarry
View Video - sang 'Foolish Games' by Jewel (luv the song and his rendition was ok but the lyrics were hard to decipher)

Oge
View Video - sang 'Crush' by Jennifer Paige (no, she didnt do the song justice)

Eric
View Video - sang 'Angels' by Robbie Williams (not bad but dude is eye-candy so I'm voting for him)

David
View Video - sang 'Change the World' by Eric Clapton (he actually did well...)

Jerrilyn
View Video - sang 'Don't Wanna Miss A Thing' by Aerosmith (Everyone knows I am rooting for her but the singing was mediocre at best...I expected better from her)

Oluwadolapo
View Video - sang 'I Swear' by All 4 One (I like her, she seems so bubbly and friendly but the singing was .......)

Jarry did well, Oge was just okay, David was alright, Jerrilyn was so-so even though I really like her because of all she has been through. I like Oluwadolapo but her entire performance was off-pitch and off-key. I think they all did well but considering the quality of Group 1, I was very disappointed in this group!
Well, Eric and Jerrilyn were the Top 2 from this group. They now join So far Omawumi and Timi in the Top 10.
Anyways, what do you think?

Have a great week and I'll have something hot tomorrow...
Ciao

Rooting for Dolapo!!

Anonymous said...

@ tatafo you must be Dolapo's friend cause she sounded like crap(sorry). Group 2 sucks!

chicala said...

ok, i wasnt rily feeling the girls especially dolapo, she jst misd the note frrom the very start. i dont get jerylin's outfit.
the guys? i'm kinda digging eric sha i think he did ok, and jarry too, he did ok but he was kinda stiff. the other guy? i think he got it a bit wrong though i feel he has a good stage presence(ig thats what its called), if u get me.
i think the last group did better. all the same its a great show. honestly, if wasnt for your posts, i prably wont hav heard of it not to talk of watching it. nice ones girl!!!!!!!

Sewa said...

I think Jerrilyn and David should make it through. The others almost burst my eardrums man, LOL.

I think Dolapo was trying the falsetto thing, she has a nice voice though.

Lemme go vote, thanks!!!

Dolapo sucked!!! wat the heck was that..she wadn't singing..she was scrraming the song...oh wat rubbish!!. anyway I think Eric and Jerrilyn should move up to top ten..though Jerrilyn was average (she disappointed me..I was expecting more), she's the best of Oge and that nonsense dolapo..Oge..hmm I didn't know if she said crush or punch...meein enunciate..gosh..anyway I've said my piece!!!

Vera Ezimora said...

Bella, thanks for the links as usual. I'm off to go watch!

DiAmOnD hawk said...

hey Bella...GREAT JOB with the updates/links for the African Idol... much props!!!!

Moji said...

What ever happened to Cynthike? She was phenomenal i bet you all agree with me. I figured she'd make the top 24 at least, in my opinion i reckon Cynthike is way better than this 18 year old chic and majority of others. By the way that Uche boy in the previous team of lara and co was the best his voice was soothing to the ears he looks the part as well. Do you agree??????????

Dimples said...

Ok this isn't fair who didn't vote for OLuwadolapo???She needed all our votes o..well poor Jarry didn't get in I guess Eric and Jerrilyn have to do Group 2 proud...i wish them all the luck.

Pearl said...

I'm happy Eric is in...would have preferred Jarry over Jerrilyn. I believe sympathy votes pulled her through!
Whatever happended to Syntyche????

reen said...

jerrylin's got a killa voice
am starting to like the show!
we got mad talent =)

bibi said...

this group totally sucked...dolapo was HORRIBLE..i didnt evenfinish watching her performance...jarry was ok...jerrilyn didnt do it for me..oge was allright as well..the only one i liked was eric...and the other guy was just good...nothing spectacular in this group...

i think they shld have done it the same way as american idol...let everyone perform each wk..then the lowest four go home....that way some of the better ones in each group will have a better chance of stayin in the top 10...

also i think liberians have a pronounciation problem...and u can tell in their singing...or is it jus me...

tatafo! said...

ahn ahn people calm down...Dolapo is my friend! all of u dissing her, it's hurting my eyes. I know she didn't perform too well but she has a great voice and that's what got her there. Give her a chance ehn!

chika said...

Eric is a hottie!..........glad he made it to da top

chika said...

....by the way i forgot to add that i totally agre with moji.what actually happened to Cynthike?she deserves to be up there.

Mona said...

Eeyaa so Ibitoru didn't make it thru? One of those girls in the group pic looks familiar. Is her name Oge?

Bee said...

Found out from a very reliable source(her cousin)...dat Syntyche actually had to pull out of the show at the last minute becos her dad didn't want her doing it...something about going to skool instead. And i thought naija parents had come a long way from thinking every kid wanted to be a doctor or a lawyer. Poor girl...
Jerrilyn got the pity votes...and we know from Idols history that those never last long...SHE IS OUT SOON.
As for Dolapo...I AM NOT EVEN GOING TO TOUCH THAT!.

Mr.Fineboy said...

Wonderful, detailed blog! Addicted!

bibi said...

@ tatafo...obviously ur friend has a nice voice nd thats wat got her in...but her performance just wasnt good...we're saying it the way it is...

synthche was great...wish she was still on...nawa 4 some parents sha

uche was good..loved his voice nd look..i was rooting for the fine boi

Ariyike said...

I thought David sang very well..his voice is unique...i cannot believe he was booted out...oh well

Uzo said...

Ehn...Betty Boo? Not to be confused with me oh...LOL

I was so disappointed with this group thouugh...

truth said...

Jarry is definitely my no 1 w.africa idol at the moment. Dolapo's singing.....made me close my window media player.oh boy, it was really not good and i suspect she's aware.I almost didn't recognize Jerylin. Call it sympathy votes if you like,but if Dolapo is still in the game the heck Jerylin should too.Oge's really entertaining though. The other guys,eric and david, can sing!Dolapo should step up her game.I'm sure she can.

BN, can you upload Lara's and Ibitoye's performance. I can't open the one on the actual site.Gracias.

Tayo said...

Personally I think Jarry had the tightest performance. Although the key got a little uncomfortable towards the end. Dolapo - Wrong song, wrong key. I wonder why she chose that song. I could hear her real voice behind the song and I could tell she has a good voice but men! that song just messed her up.
David was OK. The song didn't bring out the best in his voice though. Jerilyn was just average. Eric was good too. He started kind of slow but he built up along the song.

Have u guys noticed group 2 has the highest number of guys? All others have just 2 guys.

Tayo said...

Bella, sorry it's too late for Ibitoru now. If you notice, 3 people were called who didn't make it and she was one of them. Lara's fate is undecided and she still has a chance. At the end of the day, there'll be 1 from each group who still has a chance. I guess we'll then vote for 2 out of the 4 to complete the top 10.

im not gay but i love you for introducing me to african idol!!

koshie said...

yeeee, i am last!

Kpakpando said...

U people are too harsh on Dolapo, ah ah u didn't read her nws article, she knows she didn't do her best.

Ehm Bella, uhm hi can u please update with the long blog u promised, I've been like stalking your blog all day, its getting to the point that I might seek professional help... soo biko update already, thank you very much Chukwu gozie gi oh

i c y A F R I C A N A said...

You know Bella. Just for your review alone I did not bother watching lol and I was right not to until now. I had to go back and watch Lara from group 1 so I could feel better about clicking this group 2 bunch..... Omo nah none of them did it for me. No hair standng at the back of my neck lol so none mehn..

As always splendid entry.. ;)
