Produced and hosted by Kirk Franklin, Sunday Best is an American reality gospel singing competition series in which contestants compete to win a national recording contract, a new car, and a cash prize benefiting their community. The series first aired in October of 2007 and has had a successful 8-season run. Season 8 of Sunday Best premiered on BET on July 19, 2015.
In this series, gospel singers Yolanda Adams, Kierra Sheard and Donnie McClurkin judge ten up-and-coming gospel singers who compete to win the title of Sunday Best. Season 8 took on a new spin from all others, giving former runner ups of the show a second chance to make their dreams come true. This time, there was no audition, but a fan-based voting system, in which the viewers were the ones choosing who will come back for an opportunity to win a record deal. Having been on the show before, returning contestants are bringing a new type of energy and intensity into their performance. This format seems to be much more entertaining for the fans, as it not only gives a new spin to an old show, but proves that people do get second chances.
There has not been any official news on the fate of the series, but Sunday Best has enjoyed critical acclaim and good viewer ratings. This series is positive and warm, with a competitive edge that doesn’t border destructive, as many competition shows do. Thus, we are sure that we will see Sunday Best Season 9 some time in the near future.
