A choir perfoms on stage.

The judges will show no mercy when the choirs go unplugged in the A Capella challenge.

Six choirs remain in the competition after judge Zwai Bala granted a reprieve to the choirs in an explosive clash off last week. On Sunday 28 February, the judges will show no mercy when the choirs go unplugged in the A Capella challenge.

Stripped of all musical instruments and with no backing support from the band, will this be an opportunity for the choirs to showcase their best vocal talent, or will going sans instruments result in underwhelming executions?

The much-anticipated playlist this week will be as follows:

Mpumalanga’s Team JR will kick off the performances with Justin Timberlake’s Mirrors.

Western Cape’s Team iFani is determined to show off its skills with its Jennifer Hudson, Spotlight performance.

Gauteng’s Team Kelly must tackle We Are Young by Fun featuring Janelle Monáe.

Eastern Cape’s Team Bucie takes on John Legend’s Heaven.

KwaZulu-Natal’s Team Busiswa comes with guns blazing for a Chris Brown With You rendition.

Free State’s Team S’fiso has to impress Beyoncé fans with its Best Thing I Ever Had performance.

Tune into Mzansi Magic (161) at 17:30 this Sunday to see the judges face yet another difficult elimination round. Who will be sent packing?
