Over 13 million votes were cast to pick the Idols SA top five who performed two songs each, to a full house at Tshwane’s Heartfelt Arena.
The most recent episode of Idols SA has set a season 18 voting record with nearly 14 million votes cast this week. The votes were cast to determine the Idols SA top five who performed two songs each, to a full house at Tshwane’s Heartfelt Arena.
Making it to the top five are Mpilo, Nozi, Thapelo, Ty Loner, and Zee.
“Sadly, it’s the end of the Idols SA journey for Noxolo. Over 52 million votes have been cast by viewers so far this season,” said Idols SA in a statement.
First, the top five paid tribute to legendary hitmaker Babyface by singing songs he has produced before they took on local chart toppers.
Top five performances
Zee was first in line, singing Toni Braxton’s Breathe Again and the judges were greatly impressed by her performance with Somizi Mhlongo saying: “There was something about that performance that said I’m content”.
For her second song, she tackled Kabza De Small, Ami Faku and DJ Maphorisa’s Abalele.
Her performance was followed by Ty Loner, who took on Boyz II Men’s The Colour of Love, to mostly positive feedback from the judges.
“Thank you for not forgetting the strength of engaging with the audience and having fun with the song,” remarked Thembi Seete.
Ty later took on Mgani by A-Reece, with Somizi saying: “It was fun, casual, easy and entertaining. You were in your zone”.
