After many weeks of hard work and record-breaking votes, the long wait will be over for 24-year-old Karabo Mogane and 23-year-old Mmatema Moremi this week Sunday. The winner of Idols SA season 11 will be announced at the Idols SA final at Carnival City on Sunday night.
And what a show it promises to be! For the first time ever, the final will be broadcast in 5.1 surround sound. The Idols SA Top 10 will be reunited again on the Carnival City stage for a group performance of Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song”, and the Top 2 finalists will be performing Beyoncé’s “I Was Here” as a duet, backed by the rest of their fellow Top 10 contestants.
Mmatema and Karabo will each perform a duet with special guest stars: Mmatema will be singing Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrel’s “Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing” with MiCasa’s J. Something, and Karabo and Judith Sephuma will join forces on George Michael and Aretha Franklin’s “I Knew You Were Waiting”.
And there are many more suprise guest appearances by some of South Africa’s top artists, and of course the winning contestant will perform his or her brand new single, both of which are already hits all over South African airwaves!
Voting for the Top 2 closes at 22:00 on Friday, 20 November, after their whirlwind tour around the country, including performances at Canal Walk in Cape Town on Wednesday, 18 November, and at Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Umhlanga on Thursday, 19 November.
