After months of waiting, South Africa’s biggest reality singing competition made a spectacular return last night on Mzansi Magic and M-Net.

This season kicked off with a first stop in Pretoria, where Idols hopefuls lined the streets, hoping for the coveted Golden Ticket to Sun City. As expected, brand new Judge Somizi made his eagerly anticipated debut and swiftly won hearts with his hilarious onscreen antics and sharp one-liners.

The talent in the Jacaranda City didn’t disappoint, with a total of 19 Golden Tickets being handed out by Gareth, Unathi, Randall and Somizi.

Thami and Rhema in particular, proved to be popular enough to trend.

This season, you will be able to select your favourite Wooden Mic contestant, starting on 2 August, 2015. Judging from the characters we were introduced to in Pretoria last night, Wooden Mic is sure to be tightly contested this season.

This Sunday, it’s Cape Town’s turn to show South Africa what the Mother City is made of. Tune into Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161) and M-Net (DStv channel 101) at 17:00 to catch all the action. Don’t forget to check out all the highlights from the auditions phase of the competition here or on DStv Catch Up.
