Guest judges mooted for Idols
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.
