Six finalists have emerged for the final stage of the third edition of The Voice Nigeria and are aiming for the N10million cash prize.
The third live show session kicked off with the special rendition of Sound Sultan’s ‘Ajo’ by the coaches supported by the top eight finalists. The special tribute was followed by a brief dance session of a mix of some of late Sound Sultan’s hit songs.

Six talents, Eaziee from Team Waje, Kpee and Esther from Team Darey, Kitay from Team Yemi Alade, Naomi and Dapo from Team Falz, returned to the live show after the public voted them back into the show.

Dapo melted the hearts when he performed Michael Bolton’s ‘When a man loves,’ to appeal to fan’s votes ahead of the finale.
Coach Yemi Alade’s Kitkat Kitay brought the heat back on with his rendition of Marvin Gaye’s ‘sexual healing.’

Naomi Mac took on the stage to do her remake of Whitney Houston’s ‘I will always love you’ before her teammate, Dapo appeared on the stage to do a rehaul of D’Banj’s ‘Fall in love’ to represent Team Falz.
