The Voice SA coaches Karen Zoid, Bobby van Jaarsveld, Lira and Kahn Morbee will execute their very last save this week.

With only a couple of weeks left leading up to the final of M-Net’s The Voice SA on Sunday 22 May, coaches Karen Zoid, Bobby van Jaarsveld, Lira and Kahn Morbee will execute their very last save this week Sunday 8 May to grant one of their team members a guaranteed spot in the next round of the competition. Thereafter, the outcome of the series will solely be in the hands of the voting public.                                                      

In the meantime, it’s still anyone’s guess as to which singers could secure their coach’s save this week. Apart from the four talent saved by their respective coaches in the previous episode, only the two singers per team who received the most support at the voting polls this week will have the opportunity to continue their vocal journey and possibly become the first Voice of South Africa. 

So, who will join #Team Bobby’s current saved team member, popular blind singer Vernon Barnard, 22, on stage this week? The race is on for cool kids Austin Lurring, 21, from Pietermaritzburg and Xanilee Hammond, 21, from Alberton and mature performer Gavin Edwards, 37, who has decided to clean-up his act after overindulging the rock-and-roll lifestyle. 

In #TeamKaren, the burning question is whether Karen’s former back-up singer Thapelo Lekoane, 29, from Alexandra will receive enough votes to stay in the competition once again, joining powerhouse performer Thembeka Mnguni, 32. She’s up against Cape Town’s Jono Grayson, 23, and former fitter-and-turner apprentice Almur Marais, 25, also fondly known as “Stilfontein”. While Jono and Almur have previously been saved by The Voice SA fans, this is the first time that Thapelo is up for the vote. 

The same applies to #TeamKahn’s hot singers Prime Zulu, 27, from Durban and Richard Stirton, 22, from Cape Town, who have previously been saved by their coach. Prime, Richard and the deep-voiced Clemour Ngobeni, 24, from Midrand are hoping to perform alongside Stellenbosch student Francis Bowers, 22, who turned out to be Kahn’s save for the week. 

In #TeamLira, Zoë Modiga secured her spot last week by bringing the house down with her rendition of Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit. Will she be joined by the young but highly musically skilled Jono Johansen, 19, from Durban, session musician Robin Pieters, 25, from Cape Town, or family man Jeremy Olivier, 40, also from Cape Town? The competition is indeed stiffer than ever before in this very strong team!

The very first ever winner of The Voice South Africa will be kicking off their professional career with a breathtaking prize package that includes a R100 000 worth of cutting-edge fashion from Truworths, a coveted Gear S2 watch from Samsung, along with a Samsung Galaxy S7 smart phone, a Gear Virtual Reality set, a JS9000 smart TV, and Level On Headphones, all worth a cool R100 000. The winner also walks away with a whopping R200 000 cash prize from Dialdirect, a brand new Fiat 500 and a recording contract with Universal Music South Africa!

But it’s not only the talent that will walk away happy from The Voice SA. The viewers at home can also win fabulous prizes every week, just for voting! This week there is a Samsung Galaxy A5 Smartphone worth R5 499 up for grabs.
