4.China Faith
5.Wallie

Our First SLam Contestant Ngozi Nyoki was amazing and everyone was blown away

Kratos Clowes was next,and OH MY!..did the ladies love him!..Our Host for the night “Jael Constantine”  got chills just by his accent and tone of his sweet sounding vocals as he spit his very lovely piece called “SLAM”..

Quality Rembrandt was up next,and it was her first time being in a huge poetry contest on SL, but it didn’t seem like it. She did such an amazing job,and the crowd love hearing her very soft sensual voice.

Lyricist Lounge’s Owner Ms.China Faith finally made her presence on the stage with her most famous piece on SL called ” Social Networking” that explains  the ins and outs of how people use social netwoking in our everyday life.

Our Last Contestants “Walle” Came and recite his very lovely piece,but i crashed and was unable to hear him,but i heard great comments on him….

The sLam judges got together to deliberate on the five contestants,and picked the top three to go into the last rounds for the contest..and the final list was 1.Ngozi Nyoki 2.China Faith 3.Walle.

As the final three contestants prepare for the last rounds,we had some guests who got up on stage and performed a piece or two…We was blessed to hear Mr.Ausar Clarity,what a powerful piece he did…

Our Judges also graced the stage and did a few pieces. Ms. Rita Hazelnut did her most famous poem called “Define Me”, and what a piece it was, she got a standing ovation from our guest. Me[lady t] did a new piece of mines called “stranger in my bed”,and i was nervous to performed it,but everyone said i did a great job and they enjoyed it!

The Crowd Was really enjoying Themselves at our poetry SLam and we enjoyed our selves as well,so many talented poets all in one place…We heard from all different categories of poetry,and we also learned about different stuff and enjoyed it all.
