The Most Heartbreaking Moments During EAGT’s Live Show

Dancers, singers, acrobats, rappers, drummers - we’ve seen a number of mind-boggling and impressive performances on East Africa's Got Talent stage.

Six weeks of auditions, we’ve been exposed to the best, and the top-notch talents the region can offer.

Each act going on stage to get approval from the judges and some leaving us with goosebumps from the sheer unbelievability of their performances. On Sunday’s live show, there were a number of nail-biting moments.

Judge Gaetano’s golden buzzers, Acappella band Jehova Shalom was facing elimination from the show and were up against the All Eyes On Us dance crew.

The judges choose to save the Acapella group in what was a heartbreaking moment for Dance crew ‘All Eyes On Us’ from Uganda.

Their jaw-dropping stunts were not enough to earn them a place in the next round. Another unbelievable moment was when the Himbaza Drummers from Rwanda were eliminated from the show.

Despite putting up a show for the ages that earned them a standing ovation, they didn’t garner enough votes to proceed to the next round.

On a happier note, 9-year-old Janelle Tamara knocked out her performance with a powerful rendition of Nina Simone’s Feel good.

Judge Vanessa Mdee was of the opinion that the song was too mature for her advising she pick another song for her upcoming performance.

Tamara made it through to the next round after emerging with the most votes after online votes were tabulated. Tanzanian Musician Nandy was the surprise live guest and she captivated the audience with an act of her hit song Aibu.

Six other acts will get to show their prowess on the live stage next Sunday.
