Idols SA Top 8 contestants soar the stage

October 5, 2014


My jaw dropped after watching tonight’s episode of our own version of Idols. The performances were on a different level and it actually went up a notch from previous seasons. The contestants were celebrating 20 Years of Democracy and they had chosen songs from the year 1994.

All the contestants did an amazing job and it was enjoyable. Lize’s rendition of Boy II Men‘s “I’ll Make Love To You” was a killer. She served everything and what was interesting is, she did it so effortlessly and without breaking a sweat. Incredible. Tumi took on Gloria Estefan’s “Turn The Beat Around” and she annihilated the stage. She can really sing and her stage presence was flawless. She made me feel like going out and party up a storm.

Vincent B went on an R&B turn with Tevin Campbell‘s “Can We Talk” and as usual, it was solid. Musa‘s song choice was the most intriguing. He chose Yousso N’Dour‘s “7 Seconds” and it was great. Musa is a musician, PERIOD. He can deliver a song like no one. Bongi‘s “Breathe Again” by Toni Braxton was also great, but she could have done better. Demi Lee and Kyle fell a little flat for me. Their performances are not stuck with me.

I am really happy with the standards of this season. After watching the X Factor SA  other reality show, I almost got worried.

I will update the post once the performances are uploaded on youtube.
