Idols SA: The judges choose the Top 16

Sunday night’s episode of Idols SA sees the judges making their final decision on who will be given a coveted position in the Top 16.

The upcoming episode of Mzansi Magic’s Idols SA, which airs on Sunday, 18 August 2019, sees judges Unathi, Somizi and Randall faced with the difficult task of choosing the Top 16, amongst the remaining 32 contestants. The episode will see the contestants nervously await their fate, following their solo auditions which showcased them performing their individually chosen songs for the judges and their fellow contestants.

The preview of the upcoming episode shows a range of emotions from the contestants, with many shedding tears of both happiness and disappointment. One contestant states, “The amount of anxiety is inexplicable.” The clip also shows Randall blankly telling a contestant that they have not made it through, followed by a number of contestants leaving the room distraught. The episode also promises to showcase the final decision regarding twins, Viggy and Virginia, who were told that only one of them would be put through to avoid being constantly compared.

The next round of competition will see the Top 16 perform live for a studio audience, which will also be broadcasted nationally. Each week, the public will vote for their favourite, marking the end of the road for the singer with the least votes.

Idols SA airs on Sundays at 17:30 on Mzansi Magic, DStv channel 161.
