Lagos, Nigeria; Monday, January 20, 2014: Nigeria's Got Talent judge and Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw may have found herself in a wooing game when she appeared to have caught the eyes of one of the semi-finalists in the on-going season two of the Nigeria's Got Talent sponsored by leading telecoms operator, Airtel Nigeria.

The charming, beautiful celebrity judge seemed to be heading for a conflict of interest at the weekend when Enugu-born singer, John Bethel opened his performance on the night by rehearsing on music a sketched portrait of the actress before unveiling a smiling image of the actress.

This however, turned sour for the young man whose performance was summarily dismissed by judge Yibo Koko who chided him for failing to work at meeting expectations and seeking to exploit an emotional angle.

“Of all that have performed here, you are the least on this show,” spouted a visibly angry Yibo.

Despite openingly admitting her love for the portrait and requesting to have it for keeps, Kate Henshaw was quick to put aside sentiments as she ripped into the youthful act with some damning notes bothering on the performance.

Dan Foster, the third judge on the show must have proved somewhat a comfort for the singer as he rather chose to toe the line of correction and admonition, having pointed out the misses in the performances.

Other contestants vying for a place in the finals include The Elevators, Imeh Peace, Oasis, ESN, John (8 Strings) Azuka, Showboy Efe and Precious Play. From these,the act with the highest number of votes will be joined on the finals train by the act with at least 2/3 majority votes of the judges.
