The show started with 12 contestants after Imran and Mer left on Saturday night.
Kenya's Doreen kicked off the nights show and the judges plus the faculty seemed to be impressed with her performance before Uganda's Allanroy hit the stage. Judge Ian started off by saying the diction was terrible and if he was singing in Kikuyu it could have been terrible. Even judge Juliana was not impressed. Judge Hermes said that was a good song but you lost the lyrics.
Samantha from Burundi was the next to perform though it looks like Dr. Mitch has a soft spot for her based on his comments as he was drumming up support for her. Judge Ian said yes to her performance, Hermes said if that song was her's it could have been a hit on radio, Juliana told her that she set the house on fire, generally, they all liked her performance.
Kenya's Steve was next with 'Without You'. Judge Juliana liked it, Judge Ian did not like the performance and Hermes disagreed with Ian by saying, it was a good performance.
Kenya's Eunice was the next to perform but Judge Juliana did not like her performance but Judge Ian liked her performance and even compared their beauty to Juliana. Hermes said the song did not work out for him.
Uganda's Sharon took her curves to the stage next after she was saved last night by the faculty. Juliana said her performance was fair, Judge Hermes said this was her worst performance. It had more bad parts than good parts, so it was not good, said Judge Ian.
Fatuma from Rwanda hit the stage next doing Jenipher Hudson's track 'Where you are' Judged Hermes liked her performance, Juliana said her performance was fair. Judge Ian said she had poor mic technic, no voice and wondered what was the point of her even giving it a chance!
Ruth from Kenya probably had the best performance for the night and the crowd went wild at the end of it all. Judge Ian said wow, wow wow, the show has began after the curtain raisers. Judge Juliana said Ruth has such a big voice and she brought the house down. Judge Hermes simply said, Ruth, Thank you very much.
Damian from Tanzania was next and at the end of his performance, Juliana felt he could have done better than that and these were the same comments by judge Hermes. Dr. Mitch saved him form judge Ian now that he liked his shoes.
Nancy from South Sudan hit the stage clad in a black dress with a long slit doing 'Boom Boom' Judge Ian said that was karaokish and he was disappointed. Juliana seemed to agree with judge Ian.
Jackson from Rwanda was up next. Judge Ian said that was an okay performance. Judge Hermes said Ian was totally wrong, he felt like he was in a bar and he was doing karaoke.
Joe from Burundi was the last performer or the night. In terms of performance that was strong according to judge Hermes, but Judge Ian said there was nothing to write home about.
Those on probation this week are Jackson, Eunice, Damian, Allanroy(Tusker4) and Fatuma(Tusker 9).
