Guest judges mooted for Idols

CityPress - - News -

Mi Casa lead singer J’Some­thing will be one of four ro­tat­ing guest judges for the new sea­son of Idols SA.

Au­di­tions for the 12th sea­son kick off on Satur­day at Dur­ban’s Play­house theatre, where City Press has learnt J’Some­thing (real name Joao da Fonseca) will be the first guest judge.

An Idols in­sider told City Press dif­fer­ent guest judges would fea­ture at each au­di­tion cen­tre.

M-Net’s PR head, Non­du­miso Mabece, was tight-lipped. J’Some­thing was un­avail­able for com­ment.

Mabece said pro­duc­ers had yet to de­cide whether to re­place the axed Gareth Cliff. In court pa­pers op­pos­ing Cliff’s R25 mil­lion law­suit, M-Net said neg­a­tive com­ments he made af­ter a re­cent race row sparked anger and divi­sion, prompt­ing them to ex­clude him to pro­tect their brand.
