Wish you were a Star of the Future? Well maybe you’ll have to wait until next year to contest.
Make sure you have the heart for it, because week after week you’ll be taken through gruesome torture.
The last performance of the season was held as usual at the National Theatre.
Fans turned up in their numbers to cheer up their favorite contestant.
Now more than ever before every vote counts for these young ones who have over the weeks shown us the gifting that is imbedded so deep inside.
After Friday’s performance, there will remain only four contestants who will advance to the final face-off.
Justice, one of the strongest lead in the competition started the show with deep-voiced Betty in a duet.
Their choice of song “Lift Us Up Where We Belong” took the audiences on a soulful ride.
Soon as that ended, the remaining three contestants, Twum Barima, Frederica and Clare came up with Bishop T.D. Jakes’ “The Storm is Over.”
Continuing the performances for the night was Frederica with the first solo performance. Something Bibie Brew termed “a Frederica Special”.
She did her all time favorite, “Weakness In Me” by Keisha White.
Zapp Mallet who took to the song when he heard Frederica sing is told her that she “did it better this time around.”
The crowd favorite, Twum Barima gave the crowd all his love by doing K-Ci and Jojo’s “All My Love.”
It may not have been as good as when he first did it, but it will do.
Mallet hinted that he might be getting a bit complacent with all the fanatic frenzy he may have been receiving.
Bibie commented that his confidence on stage was evident and that he was definitely a showman.
Justice was in his zone with Lemar’s “It’s Not That Easy.”
His choice of song is always very appropriate for him; making it a point to stay within his comfort zone.
Nana King gave him his usual Kpo! Kpo! And for Bibie, he was a delight!
Coming after someone as good as he is, Betty had only two choices: either live it up or maintain the standard.
But she blazed her own trail, making it difficult to even compare the two.
Her performance was a rendition of “Fragile Heart”, originally done by gospel artiste, Yolanda Adams.
Her mature voice streamed in the air as the fans took in her every note. Mallet saw an extra zest in her and knew she could go places.
Ms Never Say Die, as Nana called Clare did a very touchy performance of Westlife’s “You Raised Me Up”.
She brought out a part of her that had been hidden all through out the show.
We only hope that it is not too late for that.
At the finals at the main auditorium of the National Theater August 3rd, we’ll see who comes up tops.
