So if you think you have what it takes to walk in the footsteps of great Idols winners and become South Africa’s next superstar sensation, get yourself to the above auditions early next year and you could find yourself with a one-way ticket to stardom.



  1. This is not fair, why dont you guys come to mpumalanga, we do have what it takes but due to the disadvantage of a location of your auditions, we cant manage to show you what we have…I was suggesting that at least have a city in all provinces just like X-Factor 2014 because now you are saying SA idols while we not given an equal opportunity, we are south africans but your location of audiotions doesnt cover all south africans


  3. Hi. I am a South African songwriter who would like to expose some of my songs to upcoming South African artists in the “Idols” program. Would “Idols 2017” be interested in original material?

  4. I don’t understand this primary or prior or whatever priminary auditions Idols have. I mean we were disqualified before even singing before the real judges. We spent horrible nights just to have our way in in Playhouse last year! I hate the way we were treated.
