As I was getting ready for the final competition of BET Sunday Best Season 5, I was surfing the Sunday Best Facebook page and saw that a picture of Joshua “Young Buck” Rogers had been posted. Is this is a hint of who will win the epic battle between Joshua and Alexis Spight tonight?
There is no doubt that this has been one of the greatest gospel music competitions in a long time. With extraordinary talents like Pastor Michael Lampkin and “everybody’s favorite” Ashford Sanders going home, tonight’s episode of Sunday Best is all about the youth. At the tender age of 18, both Joshua Rogers and Alexis Spight are set to take the world of gospel music by storm.
Alexis Spight started the competition singing “And Yet I’m Still Saved” by Donald Lawrence. Her performance wasn’t as good as her previous outings, but she still did a great job at the end. All judges gave the songstress their stamp of approval.
Joshua Rogers performed “In the Middle” by Isaac Carree and the young man was awesome. Yolonda Adams told Joshua that he makes gospel music is cool, and the rest of the judges all agreed the “young buck” was destined for success if he maintained a level head.
VaShaun Mitchell started off the second half of tonight’s competition with his beautiful ballad “Turning Around For Me.” This one of the most powerful gospel performances of the year.
Johshua Rogers sung “Up Where We Belong” by BiBi and CiCi Winans. Joshua did a really great job but the judges thought it lacked his personality.
Alexis Spight sung “Imagine Me” by Kirk Franklin and this song allowed her to show her versatility. From rapping to singing high notes, Alexis really showed her talents tonight. Going into the commercial break, Alexis did a freestyle with Kirk Franklin that was crazy.
Tune in next week to see who will win Season 5 of BET’s Sunday Best.Google+
