o you remember how last season’s Idols SA winner Vincent Bones wowed the judges at the Durban auditions? Or how KwaZulu-Natal’s Khaya Mthethwa and Lloyd Cele took their very first step into the limelight in the presence of Randall Abrahams, Gareth Cliff and Unathi Msengana?
This week, on Sunday, 26 July, joined by new judge Somizi Mhlongo, the esteemed judges encounter contestants who get an unequivocal ‘yes’. In one instance we even hear that it was “the perfect audition”.
Among the singers who arrive to do their absolute best is a performer who dissed Idols after his previous stint on the show, a car washer, an orphan and plenty of singer/songwriters. There’s also a surprise birthday in this two-hour extravaganza filmed at the beautifully restored historic Durban Playhouse.
You can catch Idols SA on M-Net, channel 101 on DStv, or on Mzansi Magic, channel 161 on DStv, on Sunday, 26 July at 17:00.
And as always all the auditions will once again be played on the Idols SA Extra channel, channel 199 on DStv, from the time the show’s end credits roll.
