Recap: BET’s Sunday Best Season 3, Episode 3

Sunday-BestIn episode 3, we saw the Sunday Best auditions move to Philadelphia. It appeared that the level of talent was much better in Philadelphia than in Detroit and Nigeria. Editing can be a little misleading at times, so there could have been some very talented people that never made it on air.

The judges for this episode were Donnie McClurkin, Kim Burrell and Tina Campbell. People have been criticizing the judges for being too harsh over the last couple of weeks. I think we need to remember that the purpose of the show is to entertain, not to make people feel good. If the judges simply told contestants “yes” or “no”, many people would criticize the show for being too boring.

This episode featured an interesting variety of contestants. Some of the contestants that auditioned included the youngest judge in the country (28 years old) and a woman in a motorized scooter. There was even a ten- year-old boy who was absolutely phenomenal. Unfortunately, he was too young to compete in the competition.

In the end, five contestants made it to the next round. There was a Jewish gentleman that believes in Jesus. I thought he had a very nice voice. We also saw the oldest contestant in the brief history of Sunday Best. An 89-year-old man (I think) came in the audition room and gave an extremely solid performance.

Philadelphia definitely gave us a lot more diversity than any other audition location. I think a couple of Philadelphia contestants may end up being serious contenders to win the whole thing. Next week will bring a new city and a new group of contestants. I can’t wait to see what happens.

Do you watch the Philadelphia auditions? What do you think them?

    They need to find some new judges for the show. Ms Campbell is way off the hook,, she sings with her hands. Donnie McClurkin & Kim Burrell are acting very silly. That 10 year old boy should be allowed to be a contestant on the show, change the age rule.

    I was a contestant in Philly and my number was 9050, I traveled all the way from Phoenix, Arizona. And I went from round 1, with the judges loving me. It was explained in the hall that I don’t go to round 2; just go straight to round 3; Soon as I open my mouth that Mary, Mary, lady said something, but I didn’t understand her. Then when it comes on the television, she is saying “what is that” after I sing. I felt bad that I spent all that money to go there, and to for BET to use my gift to make fun of on there show, was sad. I can’t watch BET any more. I haven’t wanted to see the Sunday Best show this season at all. Because of how I was betrayed on national television and contestants were chose over me, who couldn’t sing better than me. But girls who had on tight pants were picked over me. I felt that BET could have been more sensitive to the sacrifice that was made, by us, after paying for travel and hotel fees, and renting a car, staying up all night in line with the weather as low as 22 degress that night before. In line after line all day at the civic center and, for them to laugh, and say ugly things about us. What was that for? I’ve gotten calls from 5 states of friends and fans saying that they did see me and it was so wrong how I was treated. Guess what? I can sing and Jesus and I have done great ministry with my voice on Sunday Morning! Call Phoenix, Arizona and they will know Twana Atkins believe me.

    Twana,

    I’m sorry to hear that you had a tough experience. Unfortunately, BET’s sole purpose with Sunday Best is to entertain and make money. Ministry and compassions for others really isn’t at the forefront.

    God will fulfill his purpose for your life no matter what other people say. Be encouraged and keep letting God use you!

    I watched Sunday's Best this evening and the judges are a joke now. How could they keep the deacon/elder in the runnings? Kudos to his age, but do you really think he could be a recording artist in today's market? The judges should be ashamed of themselves by allowing the deacon to maintain a spot in the finals, and a more talented contestant to lose such an opportunity. I was so disgusted, I could no longer watch.

  • FAN of all three

    You got to be kidding me you must be a youngester and are not able to really understand what GOD's Praises are all about. Donnie would not have gotten where he was if he was a joke where are you ????

    You got to be kidding if you do not think Elder Goldwire doesn't deserve to be where he is in the contest. He has a very special voice and annointing. I just want to know why he had not been discovered before now. Really listen to the sound of his heart through his song. He is really ministering to all that hear him. His voice is a tool for kingdom building and that is what we were made to do.
