The 9th season of M-Net's Idols is now on. After Tumi was eliminated from the Top 10 this week, it's now starting to get really interesting and the contestants will need to up their game to not only impress the judges, but also the viewers enough so they can get enough votes to stay in the competition. Favourites, Sonke, Brenden and Bunny keep dazzling viewers, BUT they are not guaranteed a stay in the Top 10. Neither are the other six remaining contestants, so guys, please vote.
So here's what you can expect on Sunday:
This week's theme: My idol (they perform songs from their music idols)
Mentor: RJ Benjamin and Ziyon from Liquideep
Benjamin Tainton (19) from Noordhoek in
has chosen “The
Scientist”, by British idols Coldplay. Cape Town
Brenden Ledwaba (19) from Graskop in
performing R&B idol Anthony Hamilton’s “Her Heart”. Mpumalanga
Bunny Majaja (26) from Florida Glen in
is going to
be rocking a Tina Turner classic, “Proud Mary”. Johannesburg
Christina Williams (21) from
selected “Try”, a relatively new song from one of her idols, Pink. Port Elizabeth
Crystalene Nair (24) from
is honouring the original American
Idol, Kelly Clarkson, interpreting her hit “Stronger”. Durban
Innocent Mabushe (27) from Phalaborwa in Limpopo province is also interpreting a Coldplay song “Paradise”.
Musa Sukwene (26) from eMalahleni in
Mpumalanga chose to represent a local hero, Ringo
Madlingozi, performing his hit “Ndiyagodola”
Sonke Mazibuko (21) from Soweto, who is performing Zonke’s hit “Jikizinto”.
Zoë Zana (19) from Bishop Lavis in Cape Town will be channelling a little Rihanna with “Love The Way You Lie”.
We are looking forward to Bunny's interpretation of Tina Turner's Proud Mary. That song will need her to perform for her life. It's either you go big or go home- she needs to go big!
We love that Sonke and Musa have chosen local songs. We just wish that more Idols contestants actually sang local songs!
Tune into Idols on Sunday at 5.30pm on M-Net and Mzansi Magic
