Idols SA has shared the names of the eight contestants set to perform as part of Group B of the first round of the live performances.
Idols South Africa (SA) took to Twitter on Thursday, 2 September 2021, to share the details of the Group B contestants who are set to perform during the upcoming episode of the show. On Sunday, 29 August 2021, the show kicked off the live performances with the first eight of the top 16 contestants. The upcoming show will then see the second group of the top 16 perform to stand a chance to be part of the next round of the competition, which will see a single contestant voted off each week until the winner is decided.
The contestants which are part of Group B include Ithana, Karabo, Kevin, Misty, Monique, Siya, S’22kile and Zukisa. After they have performed, the top 16 will be wilted down to the top 10 contestants of this season. While fans are excited to hear Group B perform, they appear to be more interested to find out who will be the interim guest judge to sit in for embattled judge, Somizi Mhlongo.
During the Group A performances, Lady Du was the surprise guest judge. Her appearance was received with polarised reactions, in light of the #BringBackSomizi activation on social media. Idols SA has yet to confirm whether Lady Du will be the permanent interim judge, or if the show will introduce a new one until the matter of Mhlongo is resolved.
