New energy, new levels, New York
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
