Well well well, to prove that an idol mind is the Devil's Workshop, Kenyans thronged to the Kenyatta International Conference Centre and tried their best (or worst, in most cases) to show case their talent (or lack of it).
This picture post brings you the images that put smiles on Kenyan watchers of the idiot box and made April the funniest month in the year (cabinet naming coming a close second)!
The rendition of 'Try It On My Own' brought the Conference down. She should have been afraid to really try this one on her own.
Lebo wasn't impressed. But the show must go on.
David begged but was shown the door
Behind every could, there is a sylvia lining, not!
Linda wanted you... and you... and you
She left on the upswing
Bob looked out of place
Baker wanted to show off his dental formula
Bertina's voice let her down
Ken was complimented on his style but... nothing else
Katung's voice was designed for this competition
And this is Akorino Idols...
Amazing Grace? No. Amazing Maureen.
Irene boasted she had the beauty...
She had a beautiful voice
Gail got up and stoop up for his rights. Oh so wrong!
Yup! Yup! Yup!
Zaddock didn't even get 15 seconds of shame
Joel James? That is like Jeff Anthony?
Magero just wasn't being felt...
Just why wear Delilah's clothes and wig?
Kevin noticed Angie smiling for the cameras
Or was she smiling for the money?
Clearly this is how you change the world!!!
Now you see my eyes...
Now you don't!
New York Minute!
Cilla made the cut
Tutuma did not
Doris breezed through.
That was it for the edited version. But I could not resist bringing the uncut version pics.
And some advice for those who wish to make the cut next time.
Show some nipples...
And keep smiling.
Show some ATT
Show some hair...
Show some smile
Show your memory size
Play your guitar
And sing beautifully...
End of Lesson
Is she an Air Hostess?
Isn't she my son's teacher?
Is she singing 'Kwaheri' by Jua Cali?
Is she looking for the exit?
If shoes could sing...
... she would have gone through
Shoes or no shoes, he went through
Mbili Mbili Kama Kawaida...
Please Forgive Me...
And more style
And less style, Stevie Wonder!
My top matches the background!
If your hat is not in it...
... let your soul be in it!
We wrap it up with our national anthem. Altogether now:
Eh Mungu Nguvu Yetu
Ilete Idols kwetu
Haki tulicheka sana...
