The battle for survival in the Glo-sponsored Dance with Peter reality T.V show grew even more intense on Saturday night as housemates challenged one another in a face-to-face, win-or-go-home contest on Saturday. Nollywood star and Glo ambassador, Funke Akindele, was guest judge.
The edition of the reality show focused on ‘Battle Face-off’ in which the remaining 10 housemates challenged themselves one-on-one, to avoid eviction. A contestant who lost to the other was put-up for eviction. Dance Director, Wale Rubber, said the idea of the challenge was to prepare the dancers for the challenges ahead of them as professional dancers. As a curtain-raiser, dance choreographer and one of the judges, Don Flexx, gave a star performance to lighten up the show. He did WizKid’s Juru.
Kelvin from Team Flexx, who was clad in boxing gloves and hooded top, challenged top-rated C-Fly of Team Peter in a fierce contest which left the judges comprising dance choreographer, Don Flexx, dance queen, Kaffy and Peter Okoye of P-Square in a tight situation on which dancer to vote for. The dancers performed T-Pain and Chris Brown’s Freeze.
Don Flexx, when asked to comment and make his choice said “I’ll stick with Kelvin because he is innovative and versatile”. Kaffy could not make decision as both dancers impressed her beyond imagination. “Both dancers are great and engaging. I can’t choose anyone because you are both awesome and it will be a great injustice for me to send anyone of you home”, she said.
Glo ambassador, Funke Akindele, the guest judge on the show, who had earlier said she wanted to see creativity and strength from the dancers voted C-Fly for what she called a “zestful and energetic performance”. Peter Okoye described C-Fly’s performance as breath-taking and gave him a nod. With a vote of 3-1, Kelvin was consequently put on probation.
Other housemates in the contest were G-Xtreme from Team Flexx who faced Teejay of Team Peter. This was an intense battle with Amazing Amy winning the head to head after the only tie of the day of 2-2 from the judges. Amy however won convincingly after another round of dancing to get the vote of all the judges.
Other battles were between Miracle from Team Peter who faced Mali HotBoy of Team Kaffy; Amazing Amy of Team Kaffy who challenged T- Rubber of Team Flexx and Julius Faktah of Team Kaffy who went against Da Octopus of Team Peter.
The contest ended with Kelvin, Teejay, Julius Faktah, T-Rubber and Miracle who all lost to their opponents put on probation for eviction.
