Even as the number of contestants in the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall dwindles, several contestants still seem to be in need of improvement.

At the live event held at D'Entrance, Constant Spring Road, St Andrew, last Saturday, the audience was left wanting.

Kizzy B tried to be more appealing in a flirty red dress, but was lacking in some aspects of her performance.

"One of your better songs. The chorus is fine, but I still need more from you," judge Skatta said.

More was to come from Hydal, who rode on to the stage on a bicycle and also used a toy truck made from juice boxes as prop, while lamenting the fact that he wants to own a car. Despite his creativity, guest judge Mr Vegas said he needs to work on his lyrics and song construction.

Stay Suh was another average performer on the night, but Hummy Bling showed why he deserved to be saved from elimination despite low votes that put him in the bottom two. Although Major Lazer's popular Bumaye rhythm seemed a bit big for him, the judges seemed to like his performance.

"I liked that song Hummy Bling... very engaging and very lyrical," Miss Kitty said.

Candy K came out striking a bright yellow dress and red hair. She also showed that she was more than just her appearance.

"I loved your versatility tonight. You managed to sing and deejay. You are so relaxed, you are the full package thus far," said Miss Kitty.

Qbe, Miss Kitty's wild card, was one of the better contestants on the night. Despite the quickness of his lyrics, he was quite clear and showed no breathing issues.

He was liked, but the same could not be said for Tassy Diva, who bored Skatta.

Luckily Vybz Twins managed to entertain the audience with their catchy lyrics.

"You are very engaging and every week you leave an indelible mark on everybody. You always raise the bar," Miss Kitty said.

Later in the show, there was also a performance by Mr Vegas who insisted on doing his reggae songs like Smile Jamaica and Do You Know.
