Both Bishop and Leo Abisaab got the judges attention after barely starting their performances.

Leo, singer for 12 years, songwriter and DJ said:

“I wasn’t expecting one chair, let alone two. It was hard to choose. I could tell they were both passionate about the show and helping artists. I’ve watched Delta on every season but, at that moment, I felt like Boy George could offer me more.”
