SA shows one of Idols’ favourites the door
IN a jaw-dropping result that sent shockwaves on social media, one of the contestants marked for the Idols SA top three was sent home on Sunday.
Keegan Martin (24) was the surprise contestant who did not get his share of viewers’ votes to keep him on the popular singing competition.
A judges’ favourite – of whom Randall Abrahams once declared “it ain’t over ‘till Keegan sings” – Keegan’s exit showed that there was nothing predictable about Idols SA.
Reacting to Keegan’s exit, Unathi Msengana explained: “It’s been hard to predict what South Africa wants. It’s such a tumultuous and emotional time.
“Everyone who’s here right now deserves to be here; Keegan deserves to be here.”
Next week, one more contestant will be leaving to make way for the Top Five.
