As expected by the several patrons who thronged the National Theater, the night could only boast of exciting performances from the contestants. It was another display of star performance and also an indication of maturity on the part of the amateur singers.
It was the third performance night which saw the contestants performing their renditions of some of the greatest contemporary and alternative highlife hit songs to the audience. And guess what, the originally composers where on hand to determine if the contestants did justice to their songs or not.
After the dynamic Patch Bay Band had threated audience back to back a list of classics, the performance kick started with host of the show Sedem Ofori calling out the first act for the night, Noella who performed ‘You lied to me’ originally sung by Becca.
Dave came through with Kwabena Kwabena’s ‘Bibini’ in a performance that could pass for his best in the competition. For his comments, Kwabena Kwabena praised the young singer and advised him to bring out the power in his voice anytime he attempts performing his song.
In a very colorful outfit, Henry did a good work performing ‘Dadie Anoma’ also by Kwabena Kwabena. Just like the judges, Kwabena commended him for his showing and an outstanding stagecraft. It was after Rauhel’s performance of ‘Monica’ by Armaah Pino that the legendary highlife musician gave her the soulful singer a standing ovation.
Emmanuel who got nominated for the Golden Moment award for the second night stood tall on the night with his performance of ‘Odo Color’ by George Darko. He brought himself into the act making the song his with easy. He combined effectively with the band to put the audience on their feet.
Daniella was another spectacle to watch on the night. She was absolutely fantastic performing ‘Runaway’ by Irene Logan much to the satisfaction of the winner of the first season of the stars of the future competition.
However, Kwame who had been phenomenal in the previous weeks failed to woo the audience at the last performance. He failed to get the audience to scream to his performance of Kojo Antwi’s ‘Medofo Pa’ on the night.
Kaki proved to be in contention for the ultimate as she gave a spectacular rendition of ‘African Woman’ originally composed by Becca. Reynold who performed ‘Belembe’ by Besa Simons was smart with his showing according to the accomplished keyboardist.
Abby was her usual spirited performer doing a Becca classis, ‘Forever’. The exciting music talent hunt show continues next week.
