New en­ergy, new lev­els, New York

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment -

THE fight to the fi­nale, as Proverb put it, is much much closer and the Idols’ com­pe­ti­tion is still any­one’s game.

With only four con­tes­tants left, and af­ter los­ing Lu­cia on Sun­day, the re­main­ing par­tic­i­pants were awarded a trip to New York which they left for im­me­di­ately af­ter the show.

They got to sing two songs again, one song se­lec­tion com­ing from their men­tor as­signed to as­sist them in their prepa­ra­tions.

Idols’ con­tes­tants got an ex­clu­sive in­vite to the Union Build­ings, with an ex­clu­sive tour led by Bhuthi Ma­hamela, deputy min­is­ter in the pres­i­dency for plan­ning, mon­i­tor­ing and eval­u­a­tion.

“Idols keeps the coun­try on its feet. We know that this is the sea­son where ev­ery prov­ince is sup­port­ing their Idol, ev­ery gen­der is sup­port­ing the op­po­site gen­der. But I think more im­por­tantly, it’s un­earthing the tal­ent, its putting young peo­ple out there for the coun­try to en­joy,” said the min­is­ter.

A year to the day since she fell out of the com­pe­ti­tion, Amanda Black came back to the stage to sing her sin­gle Amazulu from her al­bum, which drops next week.

This week, the re­main­ing con­tes­tants pair up for duet per­for­mances. — IOL
