Sunday’s Best Season 4 Premiere on BET: Recap Episode 1 & 2

Sunday Best Season 4
It’s Backkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk! BET’s Sunday’s Best premiered last night with auditions in Atlanta, Dallas and Los Angeles. This season will feature the same judges, Donnie McClurkin and gospel duo Mary Mary (Erica Campbell and Tina Campbell). As always, the beloved, Kirk Franklin will be the host.

The first episode of the two-hour series took place in Atlanta. The five Judges were comprised of Pastor E. Dewey Smith, and previous Sunday’s Best contestants, Durward Davis, Dontavious Boatwright, Crystal Aiken and Yanna Crawley. What can I say, the Atlanta auditions did not disappoint. It had an interesting mixture of good, bad and everything in between.

I especially liked the vocals on sixteen year old Anthony Brown, unfortunately he is too young to compete. What a shame! I would love to see him a few more times in the competition! The previous contestants turned judges gathered at the end to deliver an amazing vocal performance.

Check out a snippet of the Atlanta audition below:


In the second episode auditions were held in both Dallas and Los Angeles. S/N: Dallas was really the first city they visited so not sure why BET chose to feature it in the second episode. The highlight of the Dallas audition hands down goes to David Mann aka Mr. Brown, who came in the auditions with a scarf covering his face, singing the infamous, “This is Your Granddaddy”! Hilarious!

All in all, it looks like it may be a male winner this year, as there were several powerhouses in the auditions from the three cities. In total, ten contestants were chosen in Atlanta, five was selected in Dallas, and an additional ten were chose in Los Angeles.
