Decked out in monochrome outfits, the fourteen contestants opened the show with a medley of New Edition’s ‘Can you stand the rain’ and Michael Jackson’s ‘Human nature’. This group performance was a tribute to the victims of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, and a special dedication to late Dr. Stella Adadevoh, and all Nigerians who lost their lives in trying to curtail the spread of the virus, praying for the repose of their souls.

The battle to remain in the Academy then began as the contestants (Chike, Oluchi, Deinde, Tejiri, Richie, and Ruby) who had been placed on probation the previous week stepped on the stage one after the other to perform again.

Tension began to mount after the performances, when the hosts welcomed a representative of Alexander Forbes consulting, who presented the envelope containing the name of the contestant with the highest viewers’ votes. Chike was revealed to have been saved by West Africa. The Faculty on the other hand saved Oluchi. It was then time for the contestants that were not on probation to save another contestant via their votes. Interestingly, their votes ended in a tie, which was later broken by Chike when he was asked to save a contestant. He decided to choose Deinde.

At this point, Tejiri, Richie, and Ruby had to say their goodbyes. Their parting words were full of appreciation to the Faculty, Judges, and the platform as a whole. They each performed for the last time with Tejiri performing ‘Kissing’ by Yemi Alade, Richie- ‘Daniella whine’ by Patoranking, and lastly Ruby- ‘Woju’ by Kiss Daniel.
