Determined to get off the mark, the contestants toured the Bootcamp, before settling in for an all-inclusive orientation which included fun activities such as board games, PS4 contests and an exclusive welcome party. With the Bootcamp in full swing, all 13 finalists received intense training and masterclasses from seasoned professionals including vocal coach Miss Ige and Access The Stars music director, Ben Ogbeiwi, popularly known as Uncle Ben. The training ran across voice and breath control techniques, as well as an exercise session and dance classes. Coaches also prepared the contestants for their crucial performances at the Judges Stage Show.
Themed “Trading Places,” male contestants at the stage show performed hits by female stars, while their female counterparts were put to task by hit records from male artists. An outstanding performance was turned in by Promyze, who received a standing ovation from Seyi Shay following an impressive rendition of the singer’s hit, ‘Right now’. Ada Gold was showered with praises for her masterful delivery of Labrynth’s ‘Jealous’. Gabriel Songz’s powerful cover of Adele’s ‘When we were young’ was redemptive, while Anderson blew the audience and judges away with a stellar performance which was deemed “too perfect.”
